Oxiracetam: a water soluble racetam which is very similar to piracetam. The main difference between piracetam and oxiracetam is oxiracetam’s lower effective dose. Similar to other racetams, oxiracetam seems to inhibit scopolamine-induced impairment. Oxiracetam may improve certain age-related cognitive deficits, but oxiracetam notably failed to benefit alzheimer’s disease patients. No studies have been done to show oxiracetam improves cognitive performance in otherwise healthy individuals.
