What are some of the benefits of Carphedon and how does it work? This article will review research into the effects of this nootropic drug as well as its medical and off-label uses, dosages and side effects.Carphedon (Phenotropil) is a Russian brand name for Phenylpiracetam, a phenyl derivative of Piracetam (Nootropil).
The active ingredient in Carphedon has been phenylated, which means that it has a phenyl group attached in its chemical structure.
This modification makes it significantly stronger than the original Nootropic drug Piracetam. It has been cited as up to 60 times stronger in published studies.
The cognitive effects of Carphedon are largely similar to those seen when taking Piracetam – improved learning, memory, focus and mood. It also exhibits stimulant-like effects and has been shown to increase physical endurance, cold resistance and wakefulness.
After demonstrating positive effects on athletic performance, it was added to the World Anti-Doping Agency’s banned substances list. Several athletes were eliminated from competition by the IOC after taking this nootropic agent to improve their performance at the Olympics.
Based on user review, Carphedon is effective at increasing energy levels and boosting motivation which is why it is often used as a study drug. It was initially developed in Russia to help promote wakefulness in their cosmonauts (astronauts) on long space missions.Other anecdotally reported benefits can include creativity, better problem solving and reasoning, heightened perceptual awareness, faster reflexes and improved mood.
In animal research studies, it has been found to improve operant conditioning, which is a learning process in which behaviors are trained by providing a reward or punishment on a given task.It has also been shown to counteract the psychodepressant effects of diazepam, to exert anti-amnesiac effects, and to affect the post-rotary nystagmus (PRN) reaction.
Clinically, it has been used in Russia for the treatment of a number of different neurological disorders, cognitive decline, stroke recovery, traumatic brain injury and in the treatment of certain mood disorders.User reviews describe taking Phenylpiracetam as an Adderall alternative and using it off-label for ADD or ADHD, chronic fatigue syndrome and depression.
