Nootropyl Description

Nootropyl or generic Piracetam is used in combination with other medicines to treat myoclonus. This is a condition in which the nervous system causes muscles, particularly in the arms and legs, to jerk or twitch uncontrollably. Myoclonus is most often caused by a neurological disorder, such as epilepsy or as a reaction to a medication. Other causes may include injury to the head or spinal cord, infection, or metabolic disorders. The generic alternative is not manufactured by the company that makes the brand product.

Why Nootropyl May be Prescribed

Nootropyl contains the active ingredient Piracetam which acts on the brain and nervous system. It is thought to protect the part of the brain called the cerebral cortex against a lack of oxygen. The cerebral cortex is responsible for thoughts and actions and plays a role in movement, reasoning, perception and recognition. It is believed that Nootropyl acts on your brain by improving the function of a neurotransmitter called acetylcholine; a brain chemical responsible for memory storage.

Nootropyl has shown positive results in several nervous system disorders such as multiple sclerosis and some forms of epilepsy and has helped to improve cognitive functions in individuals that have had a stroke and in cases of chronic ischemia that causes low oxygen levels in the blood.

Conditions Treated by Nootropyl

If it has been established after testing that you are experiencing cortical myoclonus, your doctor may recommend Nootropyl or generic Piracetam as part of your treatment. Myoclonus is the term used when describing involuntary muscle jerks or twitches. Myoclonus symptoms can be as mild as hiccups or sleep “starts” or they may be severe enough to interfere with eating, sleeping or walking.

Before Nootropyl is Prescribed

You should advise your doctor of all Rx drugs and over the counter medications you currently take or use, especially if you take anticoagulants, low dose aspirin or thyroid medicine. Ask your doctor if there are any risks with taking Nootropyl during a pregnancy, if you become pregnant, or when breast feeding.

Nootropyl Proper Use and Recommendations

You should not take Nootropyl or generic Piracetam if you have any of the following conditions: bleeding problems, kidney problems, Huntington’s chorea. Do not start, stop, or change dosage of other medications while taking Nootropyl without talking to your doctor first as this could interfere with how Nootropyl works in your body. All medications should be stored safely out of children’s reach and never shared with anyone else.
