Anyone self-experiment with Nootropics? Specifically the "racetams", combined with a choline source?

Anyone ever play with nootropics?

I've played with galantamine for lucid dreaming with mixed, but mostly positive results.

Thinking about experimenting with racetams or racetam-based stacks.

Anyone have any experience here?

Ideally not talking about "Alpha Brain" or any other over-hyped, minimal-dosage junk, but stronger stuff (to the best of my knowledge Alpha Brain doesn't really have any racetams, just choline and some herbal extracts of dubious utility)...

I've tried these

Aniracetam - took a couple of weeks to take effect, but I felt more my idea productivity go up and felt like I was thinking more clearly. No noticeable side effects.

Bacopa - did not notice anything significant

Galantamine - did not notice anything significant

Adrafinil - super vivid dreams, but woke up with seriously unpleasant dry mouth

Vinpocetine - tried this together with aniracetam, so hard to separate the effects from aniracetam

I'm seriously

I'm seriously thinking about trying:


as my first foray into the racetam world.

What are your thoughts on their suggested "stack" as well as their suggested dosing amounts?

Also, the pricing is pretty good, right? I have a capsule making machine, so the powder isn't a problem. Also. I've ordered other non-nootropic things from them that were exactly as labeled so I trust them as a source.

NOTE: I may use way lower caffeine than they suggest, as I prefer to get any caffeine from coffee aka. the best drink ever.
