Dysadaptation syndrome is characterized by disequilibrium in a sitting and standing position. It leads to gait modifications, alters postural reactions, and heightens fear of falling. [R]A preclinical study explored the effects of phenibut, aminalon, and picamilon treatment on swimmers with disadaptation syndrome. Results from the study indicate that the compounds potentially produced a decrease in the blood filling of the brain. Plus, they potentially increased blood flow from the brain. [R]
This means that picamilon may prevent and possibly reverse some aspects of amnesia and cognitive decline. 12Voronina TA, Garibova TL, Khromova IV, Tilekeeva UM. Dissociation of the anti-amnesic and antihypoxic effects of nootropic and antihypoxic preparations Farmakol Toksikol. 1987
In Russia, picamilon is sold as a prescription drug. The rights to the drug belong to the Russian pharmaceutical company NPK ECHO ("НПК ЭХО"). It is not approved for sale in the United States and has been deemed an adulterating agent in dietary supplements, with five American companies required to remove their picamilon products from the market in November, 2015. However, as recently as 2020, picamilon has been found in pharmaceutical dosages in over-the-counter supplements in the US.
In the United States, the Food and Drug Administration ruled in 2015 that picamilon does not fit any of the dietary ingredient categories in the Dietary Supplement Health and Education Act of 1994, namely that it is not a vitamin; a dietary mineral; an herb or other botanical; an amino acid; a dietary substance for use by humans to supplement the diet by increasing the total dietary intake; or a concentrate, metabolite, constituent, extract, or combination of any ingredient described above that had been marketed in the United States before 1994. Despite the FDA ruling, picamilon remains an ingredient in supplements marketed as nootropics in the US.
On November 30, 2015, the Agency sent warning letters to DBM Nutrition, ICF International, Top Secret Nutirition, LLC, Applied Nutriceuticals, Inc., and SDC Nutrition, Inc stating that picamilon is a substance that does not meet the statutory definition of a dietary ingredient. Links to the warning letters can be found at the end of this article.
Sen Claire McCaskill (D-MO), the ranking member of the US Senate Special Committee on Aging, then waded into the situation, writing to Stephen Ostroff, FDA Acting Administrator, calling for the Agency to suspend sales of supplements containing picamilon and vinpocetine pending an investigation.
Hi all, the only thing picamilon does to me is make me sleepy and kind of lifeless. Thats at 200 mg dose,after about 30 minutes I've got the feeling like when you down two or three beers you sit down on the sofa to watch tv and few minutes later eyelids get heavy and you just want to sleep, literally this kind of feeling. I can't imagine how it suppose to give you cognitive boost(nubraindotcom sagest it as a substitute to pramiracetam LOL) let alone energy. I also take tianeptine (for depression) which gives me insomnia so a good use for picamilon to take before bed till the end of the bottle - i won't buy it again.Peaceps. I got it from relentlessimpr so it's suppose to be the real deal.
Really don't understand the reviews on here. Makes you feel drunk? don't me laugh.. It's nothing near anything recreational. Its gaba and niacin bonded together. The gaba itsef has an effect but nothing in the same way a few vodkas would have.If you take it in low doses it's said to be more 'relaxing' - maybe the gaba plays a more pronounced effect at this level (or the niacin isn't at a high enough dose to do it's stuff because trust me it is the main player in this supplement). Forget this gaba rubbish. You get people saying they are taking 50mg per day and it is 'slightly relaxing' and they are 'happy' and 'content' with this 'marked improvement' in their wellbeing. It's also ''much better than the gaba I bought from my local health fod shop''. If you want more gaba in your head take something else. Firstly a bit about me. I'm over 6ft with high tolerance to must substances/supplements so know when something is good. I've taken most drugs and am perfectly aware of everything that effects my neurotransmitters. I know when I'm buzzing on dopamine. I know when I'm buzzing on serotonin. I know if I'm feeling an MAO inhibitor (picamilon has this effect apparantly). Just to be clear I never mix my supplements (unless there is good evidence to do this and I have good knowledge on how to make things work for you - i.e, you wouldn't take L dopa after eating 10 eggs).I have a good diet where I eat at least 5 pieces of fruit per day (supplemented with a small inake of indium to increase mineral absorbtion) and if I'm single I refrain from masturbation as much as possible (once per week maximum as this severely upsets your hormone balances, depletes the beautiful neurotransmitter dopamine, - hence you spending more money on supplements!)The real beauty of picamilon and the way it actually works is the niacin itself. Taken at 200mg plus per day it gives an energizing high and this lasts the whole day. When you start 'coming up' on picamilon you get this warm heady feeling that does feel kind of 'bloody'. Everything appears more colourful. I feel energized and motivated and socializing with my peers is the most rewarding aspect of this supplement. This is not placebo. In my opinion it is the niacin itself which gives it it's anti-anxiety effect. I feel a million times more sociable when I'm on picamilon. As I've stated it's not the gaba which is having this effect on me because trust me I know what excess gaba feels like. It's the niacin which has a 'flushing' effect at higher doses. It's perfectly safe, neuroprotective and works in synergy with your body. I have heard it can stop working if you keep taking it but this doesn't worry me too much. I have alternative stacks that I can fall back on. I think if this is the case it must be similar to Rhodiola in that you need to take breaks from it. I shall wait and see. Just to let people know the first 3 or 4 times I took picamilon I felt nothing. I thought what a waste of money it was and that I had been conned. I took doses up to 500mg and felt nothing. Then recently I randomly decided to take a 300mg dose after feling edgy at work. It was amazing. I've been taking it every day since then and it has the same effect each time I take it. I understand when people say it hasn't worked for them. The only thing I can recommend is to persevere with it. Give it a chance!! The fact it started working for me resulted in me doing my research on it. Then you actually understand how it works. If you want any decent effects from it you'll have to alter how you percieve it. It is a stimulant. And a an amazingly good one at that.
Doses up to 600 mg of picamilon didn't lead to any noticeable effects for me, picamilon was ineffective (compared to l-theanine, kava kava, etc) in lowering stress (or having stimulatory effects at higher dosages)
I think you need to take some more picamilon dude, you seem upset. No im only joking But what i want to say is that if i take less than 300mg i only get sedated, it wouldnt help me get more focused at all. And i dont get the logic when you say that 300mg is more than what they give alcoholics and should therefore be an insanely high dosade. When piracetam is used for Opsoclonus myoclonus syndrome the recommended dosage is 7 grams up to three times a day, with your logic, the doses that people take here shouldnt be worth more than a piss in the ocean. But thats not the case is it?
Just tried 300mg of picamilon and it did not do anything for me. Yet another worthless supplement to throw your money and time away for. It is interesting how on these boards the effects of these things seems to differ, kind of makes me feel as if perhaps some people here are using these boards for marketing purposes because the excuse that "oh, your body chemistry is just different," that just does not jive with me. We all have the same chemistry unless somehow genetically flawed e.g. diabetes or some other condition but in general I do not see any valid reason why something should work well for one normal healthy human being and not for another. Please enlighten if you know.
I recently bought picamilon (150mg) and i have tried it a few times now. The first time i tried it i took 300mg just to see if i could discern any noticeable effects. My mood got better and i got some energy. The days after i took 150mg and every night my sleep was bad, i woke up several times each night. At one time, with 150mg, i got slightly manic too, perhaps because of the lack of sleep though.Yesterday was the first day for a week or two that i took 150mg and i felt slightly dumb, i was really lethargic and out of focus. I wrote down a list of what i just had bought in the store to show a friend and i wrote the same thing twice and forgot one thing, even though i had just come home and had all the things i had bought in front of me. I tried taking 300mg of magnesium on an empty stomach before sleep yesterday and it worked well, i woke up a few times but im not tired right now and i have done two tests this morning in school with no problems.Its possible that my memory gets better, its too early to tell right now.How about you guys?
