Phenylpiracetam (Phenotropil) is a racetam class nootropic supplement derived from Piracetam. It appears to require much lower doses for similar properties and appears to have psychostimulatory effects. I have personally found this to be one of the most effective nootropic supplements I have used to date and have regularly added it to many nootropic stacks. Phenylpiracetam works best to provide a boost in overall mental energy, making it an excellent choice for those extra strenuous days that you need a cognitive boost. 

Phenylpiracetam (Phenotropil) is a Nootropic supplement of the Racetam family, and as its name suggests it is a phenyl derivative of Piracetam. Phenylpiracetam is reported to be more neuroprotective than piracetam is, but also possesses psychostimulatory properties and is reported to enhance physical performance.phenylpiracetam

Phenylpiracetam Benefits:

  • Increased energy is typically much more noticeable than that found from piracetam but without jittery side effects. 
  • Increased tolerance and reduction of stress 
  • Improvements to memory
  • Enhanced learning capacity and overall fluidity of speech
  • Increased attention span
  • Enhanced ability to focus and concentrate
  • Overall improved mental energy
  • Many have reported that Phenylpiracetam helps with sleep deprivation, as it commonly acts as a stimulant and can be useful after long study, work, or even party nights
  • A personal favorite of Focus Here and Now for those extra long days, nights, and times where we need that extra mental boost! It is NOT an everyday supplement, but when you need it and you use it, it provides exactly what you need in a much more safe and natural way than many prescription ADHD medications have provided for me and others. It is a nootropic supplement that I ALWAYS make sure to have in stock!
  • Phenylpiracetam works synergistically well with many other nootropics helping to potentiate their effects so that you are getting the most out of the benefits that they also provide. 


There is a fair bit of research to suggest that phenylpiracetam is effective, like other racetam drugs, in attenuating the rate of and symptoms of cognitive decline. Many of these studies used it for over one month's time, and the benefits seen may only apply to organic causes of cognitive decline (dementia and stroke) rather than traumatic brain injury.

Growing in Popularity as a Strong Nootropic Supplement

There was a lot of hype surrounding phenylpiracetam when I first tested this supplement to decide if we would add it to our library of nootropics in the racetam class. After testing it out for over a month, I could certainly see why. Phenylpiracetam provided that extra cognitive boost that I was looking for and really helped me get through those long, hard days where I felt like I could use an extra cognitive boost in virtually every department. 

Phenylpiracetam is great before a test or presentation to provide that extra boost of focus and allows you to feel and sound sharp in your execution. It is not the type of nootropic supplement that I recommend taking every day or that is needed every day. It is really for those days that you need an extra boost or punch and even if you are supplementing phenylpiracetam often, I would highly recommend not using it more than 3-4 days a week to curb tolerance and achieve the benefits you are seeking when it is needed. 

What are Phenylpiracetam Capsules?

Aliases: Phenotropil, Carphedon, (RS)-2-(2-oxo-4-phenylpyrrolidin-1-yl) acetamide

Phenylpiracetam is water-soluble and will be best absorbed if consumed with water. Water-soluble nootropics are best absorbed or most bioavailable when they are consumed on an empty stomach. It is best to take your stack with phenylpiracetam first thing in the morning and is recommended to be taken 1-2 times daily. 

Phenylpiracetam is a member of the racetam family and is quoted as up to 40x stronger than the staple nootropic drug, Piracetam. It is a Piracetam capsule, with an added “Phenyl” isomer, allowing for its heightened effects on the dopamine and serotonin receptors in the brain and giving it the extra lift that piracetam alone lacks. Phenylpiracetam is reported to be more neuroprotective than Piracetam alone and is rapidly absorbed in the human body.

Dosages phenylpiracetam dosage

Typical dosages are from 100 milligrams on the lowest end of effective dosages (the lowest dosage at which the drug will take a noticeable and beneficial effect in the brain) vs. 700 milligrams at the highest end (the maximum dosage you should take.)

Our Capsules come in 200-milligram dosages, and should always be taken with a choline source.

Phenylpiracetam is one of our best, strongest, and most popular nootropics, and we offer it in 60 capsule bottles, here and now!

It is best to take Phenylpiracetam on a cycle for 3-5 days a week and then maybe a week or two off. It is best stacked with something like a Choline source and another member of the racetam class like Aniracetam or Oxiracetam, as well as noopept for a killer, effective cognitive enhanced kick in the butt! As I mentioned, it is one of my personal favorite nootropics!

I have found it also goes quite well with the addition of CILTEP.

Are There Side Effects

Phenylpiracetam side effects can include a mild headache (if not enough CDP Choline is taken with the drug), dry mouth, and insomnia, if taken too late at night, as it can act a bit like a stimulant and give that “Adderall effect”. These side effects are easily avoided by not dosing excessively. Start with the lowest minimum amount and gradually increase, as needed, while drinking plenty of water and again, take it with our CDP Choline source or preferably something like Centrophenoxine or CDP Choline.

Phenylpiracetam Reviews

While we cannot directly state that Phenylpiracetam will have these specific effects on you, most user reviews state it gave users increased energy, focus and awareness, and that it increased their overall visual perception (these benefits were due to an increase in dopamine and acetylcholine in the brain.)

I have personally experienced many benefits from Phenylpiracetam, which is why it remains one of my personal favorite nootropic supplements, but it is still important to remember that everyone is different. We have different brain and body chemistry and what may work for one person, sometimes may not work for another.

While it is not necessarily a nootropic that you need to take daily, it makes an excellent addition to your stack on those days that you really need it. Therefore, if you have an important day at work where you will be giving a presentation or a meeting that you need to be on point while attending, perhaps, an important exam to study for that you want to be on top of your mental game, it makes the perfect addition.
