Aniracetam is a type of drug which is classified under the family of nootropic supplements. This family of supplements have been said to help increase brain power and effectiveness in a lot of ways, such as improving short and long term memory, attentiveness and attention span and a lot of other things. But it is still a drug after all and it is inevitable that some people would experience a few side effects after taking this particular drug and thus it is important so that you do not endanger your health.
Headaches and Dizziness
This is the most common side effect reported by people taking this drug. Even though it is the most common side effect, it does not mean that side effects are commonly found in people taking the drug. What this means is that it is the most common among the people who experience side effects, which is less than 10% of the people who consume Aniracetam.
These headaches though usually should subside by itself after a few days or within 2 weeks. If it does not subside, considering taking a lighter does of the drug and space out your intake within a longer timing.
Feeling more tired and sleepy
Another side effect people might feel is becoming more tired and sleepy as this drug works by influencing certain receptors and neurotransmitters in the brain itself. It is also just a natural over-reaction of your body and it should also subside after a few days.
Apart from these 2 common side effects, you may also feel other side effects such as being more nervous or excited. All of these are completely natural and is just an over-reaction by your body to a new substance in your biological system. But of course, if the problems do not go away by itself after a while, you might want to consider stopping the drug or switching to an alternative drug in the same family which may still be able to provide you with the same results you desire.
