Hi,

I' ve heard that piracetam is quite good for memory and concentration. Is this true?

There are indeed some pieces of evidence that this drug MIGHT have such effects in SOME people, but solid evidence to allow any definite conclusion isn;'t available yet. These are not indications for using it which have yet been approved and reciognized by the main drug licensing authorities, but it is often used "off-label", meaning prescribed by a doctor for uses beyond those yet officially approved. It seems to be available in the USA as a "dietary supplement ", and used fairly freelly, without many reports of it causing harm. Some doctors believe it could be useful in the way you mention, and some don't. Discuss it with your own particular shrink, especially to check whether it will combine well with your current and likely future essential meds.
