Fasoracetam Powder is a nootropic compound in the racetam family of nootropics. Racetams encompass a large group of different compounds, all modified from the parent compound Piracetam, which was discovered in the 1960s. Fasoracetam’s chemical name is: (5R)-5-(piperidine-1-carbonyl) pyrrolidin-2-one. Fasoracetam's structure is fairly different than other racetams, with the acetamide grouping off the 5 position of the 2-Pyrrolidone ring, rather than the open nitrogen off the 1 position like other racetams in its family. In addition to that, it has an added piperidine grouping off the acetamide. Fasoracetam has a molar mass of 196.25 g/mol and a molecular formula of C10H16N2O2.
IUPAC: (5R)-5-(piperidine-1-carbonyl) pyrrolidin-2-one

Surprised by this, having tried most racetams, this is simply....different. Recommended. Unknown on 13th Mar 2018
Product came in just as advertised. Shipping time on point. Only complaint is that big ass anti moisture ball that makes it hard as dicks to scoop out. If you want it go for the 5 G's might be a bigger container that makes it easier to get out. Cant complain too much though, would rather have to deal with that then dremmeling apart a container to scrape clumps out with a razor blade. Dman on 21st Feb 2018
This is the first racetam I tried, and it seemingly helped me a lot at restoring my GABA receptors, probably weakened after years of alcohol, benzo and Z-pils abuse.
In the first few days, I felt lots of motivation, but this quickly fade away. Just after this, I quickly was able to stop taking sleeping pills and later could easily refrain from drinking (taking NAC too).
This was not something I planned, it happenned naturally.
I take 20 mg sublingually 2 times a day.
As for Nootropics Depot, I got perfect service. Order safely and quickly sent to France. Less than 10 days for delivery, no problems with customs. Already ordered again.

My experiences with it pronounced mostly for it anxiolitic effects, and overall I feel great with 15mg. Barak on 22nd Dec 2017
This helped me feel calm and cool when talking to people instead of clenching up and having little to say. Some days it seemed good for my mood but others I felt uncomfortable or basically no difference. I’m investigating why...
Some effects build a tolerance right away while others don’t. Breaks are a no-brainer; some benefits can even stick with you when you stop taking it so look out for that. It doesn’t cause much stimulation but I suspect it’s what kept me up on one or two nights when I took it past 6pm. My dosages never went above 30mg.
Overall it’s probably not my go-to solution but it helped with social ease. Meditation was enhanced if I might add. It worked well as a general nootropic too.
5 Stars because it’s a high quality and tested product that came in exactly the way it was advertised. Great site <3 Joey on 13th Dec 2017
So as a full time employee working a manual labor job, student, and film score producer, I'm usually stressed to hell and more than willing to try new nootropics with anxiolyic properties. Noopept has been my daily driver for its ability to reliably induce a state of mental clarity, but it's effects on mood are variable for me. I decided to try fasoracetam to see what it could offer.
The first time I took it, I ingested 20mg on an empty stomach. Within 20 minutes my visual field was more saturated and I had that 'benzodiazepine' sense of calmness - which is strange because I thought that GABA B upregulation happens over the course of weeks with this compound. In any case, the mellow clarity was welcome and I was impressed that it seemed to have no effect on my cognition. A bit of stimulation not unlike Semax accompanied the relaxation, and the over all effect was very nice. I haven't noticed any change in cognition so far, but this definitely does a great job boosting my mood. My ability to compose music went through the roof - creativity was enhanced and I could focus for stupifying periods of time. My mental workspace seemed enlarged, as i would find myself mentally composing during repetitive tasks at work and organizing my thoughts visually with complete ease. High level conceptualization was less distracting and I could get to the 'essence of things easier without worrying about my decisions.
After two weeks, the effects still seem stable, if not increasing slightly. Unfortunately, I began to develop 'brain zaps' upon filling asleep that were exactly like the ones I experienced withdrawing from an SSRI once. These zaps, over time, lasted longer: my teeth would clench and I would sort of hallucinate vividly for around 10 seconds during it. The clenching would get worse and worse like a revving engine until I snapped out of it. This is not sleep paralysis or a dream, this is different and unique. Additionally, around this time, I would hallucinate during the day if I closed my eyes for more than 4 or 5 seconds. It got to the point where these hallucinations would momentarily intrude into my stream of consciousness for no apparent reason, resulting in an embarrassing moment where I talked to someone in class for about 10 seconds who was not there! These effects, toward the end, were insanely similar to hallucinations imposed by deliriants. These effects lasted for about 40 hours after stopping the compound and have not returned. Most of the nootropics effects still seem to be operative almost one month later though.
Over all, this is a promising compound with a solid spectrum of effects. But something about my brain just didn't get along with it. mGlurs are a very broadly acting subset of receptors and its entirely possible that i have some small genetic difference that caused a downstream imbalance. I would advise anyone taking this to be aware that it might cause some strange effects once receptors downstream from your mGlurs begin to upregulate/downregulate due to the formers agonization, which is where I hypothesize that I ran into problems.

In my experience, racetams either have problems with potency (looking at you piracetam- and in the opposite direction, you over there, noopept) or are woefully irregular (100 mg phenylpiracetam can one day be a powerful half-day stimulant, the next day it can practically make me sleepy). Not true of good ‘ol fasoracetam here. Fasoracetam is the most stable, predictable, clean nootropic I’ve ever taken. It has made its way to #1 not just on my racetam list, but on my nootropics list in general. It has a clean but noticeable start up, never makes me jittery, and lasts a decent 2-3 hours, short enough to get some work in before bed, but long enough to keep on track for longer projects, and easy enough to redose throughout the day. I stack with around 400 mg Aniracetam, 150 mg alpha gpc, and maybe some uridine if I need some extra physical energy. Redose every 2-3 hours, up to 3 times and you’re in business for a solid work day.
[Side note: I know most people administer sublingually- I advise against it. I find it a more predictable and pleasant experience when I cap it. I use a “0” size cap and fill the rest of the cap with aniracetam and alpha gpc, which gets me just about the right levels on all of them. If you don’t cap your own of those two, you could just throw some creatine in to fill it up.]
Absolutely love this product - it’s always on my shelf. Would recommend. AndrewPerrine on 21st Nov 2017
20mg sublingual ~30-45min after 30mg sublingual Noopept
Noticing that Fasoracetam does provide a calming effect, after taking noopept, I added Fasoracetam and have noticed its causing me to feel a bit sedated or heavy feeling as if one had taken a low to medium dose of phenibut. It has seemed to decrease my overall energy both mentally and physically. I don’t feel as sharp mentally as I did earlier.
This was the most noticeable time taking Fasoracetam. Other doses have been milder but the calming aspect has been noted. Unknown on 14th Sep 2017
I take ~20mg sublingual and get a nice focused state of mind with improved visual acuity. As to the rumors of it being able to upregulate gaba b receptors they seem to be true. I was travelling overseas for 3 weeks and taking phenibut more frequently than I probably should have been for jetlag and ended up with some minor phenibut withdrawal symptoms after returning to Amsterdam. Fasoracetam would exacerbate those symptoms for the first couple hours after taking indicating to me that it was indeed antagonising the s*** out of my gaba b receptors. That effect lasted about 10 days, by then the phenibut withdrawal symptoms (agitation, prickly skin) completely disappeared. Gaba b back to normal and ready for action. Very nice side effect for a racetam. MG on 1st Sep 2017
This stuff is amazing. I took only a small amount approximately 30 mg and it worked vey fast. I felt a sense of calmness and also a steady energy that lasted for several hours. Unknown on 9th Jun 2017
