How does Aniracetam work

The mode of action of Aniracetam is not fully understood but several theories have been put forth regarding the mechanism of action of the drug. These include glutamatergic, serotonergic, dopaminergic, cholinergic, and indirect adrenergic effects etc.

  • Nicotinic Cholinergic ReceptorsLike other racetams, Aniracetam acts as a positive modulator of Nicotinic receptors involved in interaction with neurotransmitter acetylcholine. Animal studies indicate the role of Aniracetam in reducing the memory and learning loss and abnormalities brought about by cholinergic antagonists. The drug also increases the release of acetylcholine from the brain hippocampus resulting in elevating the cholinergic neurotransmission.
  • AMPA Glutamatergic ReceptorsAniracetam is a positive modulator of AMPA (alpha-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methylisoxazole-4-propionic acid) receptors responsible for the neurotransmission of glutamate (most common neurotransmitter in the brain). Aniracetam acts by binding to the non-active site of the AMPA receptor and modifies it resulting in reduced rate of desensitization thereby causing enhanced activation in presence of positive stimuli including glutamate. These receptors play important role in memory and are responsible for fast transmission at the synapses in the central nervous system.
  • GABAergic ReceptorsAniracetam increases the effects of GABAergic inhibition. GABA is responsible for the cognition (thinking) and emotional wellbeing, and improvement in the GABA function may serve in treating anxiety and cognitive disease.
  • Serotonergic ReceptorsAniracetam acts on serotonin receptors thereby inhibiting the breakdown of serotonin (involved in mood and behaviour regulation) and restoring its optimum level. Increased serotonin levels results in mood improvement, boosting energy, and decreasing anxiety.
  • Dopaminergic ReceptorsAniracetam causes reduction in anxiety and enhances socialization via interaction with dopamine receptors. The drug results in an increase in the release of dopamine and acts to improve mood and judgement.
  • Adrenergic ReceptorsBinding of Aniracetam to AMPA receptors causes enhanced release of noradrenaline from neurons. This brings about slight stimulatory effect on the central nervous system.

Aniracetam side effects

Aniracetam play an important role in promoting increased mental processing and cognitive activities but sometimes (rarely) may be associated with side effects in case of overdose or its recurrent use. However, there is only a limited data available about the severe effects or any fatalities associated with the use of the drug. Tolerance issues (which reduces the desired benefits) and negative withdraw symptoms may arise with the use of Aniracetam in some instances. The severity of the side effects that may be encountered in some individuals is subject to individual variation, and interpretation. The most common side effects that may be experienced with the use of Aniracetam include diarrhea, anxiety, nausea, dizziness, and headaches:

  • Anxiety: Usage of Aniracetam may result in provoking anxiety in certain users that may cause nervousness and discomfort.  Besides, Aniracetam can also trigger racing thoughts (a series of uncontrollablethoughts that switch rapidly between ideas) and mild paranoia (an irrational feeling that people are trying to harm you), especially in social situations.  The anxiety may be caused by the effect of Aniracetam on neurotransmission (cholinergic, dopaminergic, and serotonergic) in the brain.
  • Apathy: Aniracetam use may result in apathy (absence or suppression of passion, emotion, or excitement) or emotional blunting (a reduction in the intensity of an individual’s emotionalresponse).  These side effects are usually not severe but noticeable. The person may feel focused and cognitively enhanced at one time but may note the disappearance or dampening of emotion simultaneously.
  • Brain fog (feelings of mental confusion or lack of mental clarity): Aniracetam intake may result in worsening of the brain fog or impaired cognitive function in some individuals instead of curing it. In a few instance, individuals who have had no brain fog prior to the use of Aniracetam may feel forgetful, exhibit signs of cognitive decline, and spaced out whenever they consume the drug.
  • Diarrhea: Aniracetam administration can cause gastrointestinal irritation involving upset of stomach as well as diarrhea. This side effect is usually more common in case of individuals who take Aniracetam on an empty stomach as opposed to with food.
  • Dizziness: Aniracetam may cause dizziness in some cases which may arise due to depletion of acetylcholine (neurotransmitter), consumption of high dose of Aniracetam drug, and/or interactions with other co-administered agents. The dizziness can be subsided through choline supplementation that replenish acetylcholine or repeated Aniracetam administration that causes brain adaptability.
  • Headaches: It is the most common side effect associated with the uptake of Aniracetam. The headaches may vary from mild type to severe cases (feeling of full blown migraines). It may be caused by a depletion of acetylcholine in the brain which is often attenuated or inhibited by the concomitant use of a choline supplement.
  • Insomnia (inability to sleep): Aniracetam administration may cause worsening of insomnia even in individuals who never have experienced insomnia before taking Aniracetam.  The insomnia could in part be initiated by the stimulatory effect of Aniracetam brought about by the changes in the neurotransmission of serotonin, dopamine, and acetylcholine that alter brain waves. The time of Aniracetam administration may affect the biological cycle that ultimately compromises the ability to sleep. Co-administration of choline supplements with Aniracetam may lead to insomnia in some cases. Some instances of insomnia may be due to the overlap and additive effects of certain mechanisms of Aniracetam and choline.
  • Jaw tension: Excess jaw tension may arise in some individuals taking Aniracetam due to depletion of acetylcholine. However, excess choline supplementation may also trigger severe jaw tension besides inducing headaches and muscle tension.
  • Nausea: Administration of Aniracetam may result in nausea in some individuals.  It is most severe during the beginning of the use of Aniracetam. The condition gets subsided with time and/or with continued usage and dosage adjustments of the drug.
  • Pain: Aniracetam may elicit the onset of physical pain throughout the body mainly chest pain, muscle pain, and muscle aches by some unknown mechanisms. Coadministration of Aniracetam and choline may raise acetylcholine levels leading to muscle tension and pain.
  • Restlessness: Administration of Aniracetam may cause the feeling of restless often accompanied with anxiety, nervousness, and racing thoughts.  Restlessness may be elicited by excess choline supplementation as well as by stimulatory effects resulting from modulation of glutamatergic, cholinergic, serotonergic, and dopaminergic transmission.
  • Skin rash / itchiness: Use of Aniracetam in rare cases can cause skin rashes, dry skin, and/or itchiness.  Although this side effect is uncommon but may occur as a result of series of events leading to increase in histamine levels brought about by Aniracetam. However, in some instances interaction of Aniracetam with other drugs can cause rashes or itching.
  • Stomach aches: Aniracetam can result in gastrointestinal discomfort when taken on an empty stomach.  This gastrointestinal distress may cause stomach aches (mild or moderate discomfort).
  • Temperature changes: Consumption of Aniracetam in some individuals causes changes in body temperature ranging from mild or moderate to low fever that may provoke the occurrence of sweats, especially at night.  Consequently, individuals may feel abnormally hot or cold throughout the day.
  • Tiredness: Aniracetam may cause fatigue and tiredness that arises due to various factors including time of drug administration, drug dosage, drug interactions and/or acetylcholine depletion.  Alteration of Aniracetam dosage and/or concomitant choline supplementation may counteract the side effect of tiredness.
  • Vertigo: Aniracetam administration can provoke vertigo characterized by the feeling of spinning environment and increased dizziness.  This adverse situation is coped by the sufferers by lying down and closing eyes. Vertigo is a result of overdose of Aniracetam and/or its interactions with concomitant supplements.

There can be other side effects than the ones listed above. Always consult the doctor immediately in case of experiencing any of the side effects and discontinue the use of Aniracetam. The side effects can be overcome by decreasing the dose and frequency of the drug intake, and coadministration of Aniracetam with choline.

What should I do in case of overdose

  • Try to avoid taking the overdose of Aniracetam.
  • In case you or some other person has taken overdose of this drug and face serious complication, medical assistance should be sought.

What should I do in case of missed a dose

  • In case of missed dosage, take it as soon as you remember and maintain a regular dosing schedule.
  • Skip the missed dose if it is almost time for your next scheduled dose. Keep in mind to not use a double dose to make up a missed dose.

Does Aniracetam have any interaction with other drugs

  • Studies indicate the interaction of Aniracetam with some substances/drugs which may be positive or negative. Care should be taken when coadministering the combinations.
  • Aniracetam acts synergistically with other racetams (piracetam, pramiracetam, oxiracetam, etc.) and shows enhanced nootropic effects (ability to enhance memory and other cognitive functions).
  • Coadministration of Aniracetam with acetylcholine precursors leads to an increase in the nootropic potency of Aniracetam due to its role in increased utilization and uptake of the acetylcholine neurotransmitter involved in memory and learning.
  • The acetylcholine precursors that play a key role in the interaction and enhancement of the functions of Aniracetam include the following:
  • Choline (choline citrate, choline bitartrate, and choline chloride)
  • Acetyl-l-carnitine (ALCAR) acts as acetyl donor
  • CDP-Choline
  • Lecithin
  • Centrophenoxine
  • Alpha GPC
  • DMEA
  • Phosphatidylserine (PS)
  • There are differing views regarding the use of combination of alcohol and Aniracetam (a chemical substance that changes brain function).
  • Anxiety can be better handled in some individuals with stronger effects via Aniracetam when used in combination with alcohol.
  • However, the concomitant use of Aniracetam and alcohol is generally not recommended due to enhanced intoxicating effects of alcohol. Alcohol becomes more potent in presence of Aniracetam and brings about disruption.
