The dosage requirement varies from individual to individual but a dosage of 750-1500 mg per day is considered both safe and effective. Even a dosage of 3000 mg per day is well-tolerated.

Stacking of this medication
It is a potent nootropic but does not remain in the bloodstream for a long period and almost 95% of the supplement never gets absorbed. This makes it essential for the stacking purpose. Among the nootropic users, Aniracetam is commonly stacked with the other racetams to get the synergistic effects. If several supplements are combined together, a user experiences better benefits rather than using a single supplement. A popular stack that is available in Nootriment involves combining it with Oxiracetam and Piracetam. Another common supplement is using high-quality Choline source or Alpha GPC. It can potentiate the effects of all the racetam nootropics.
