Are Tianeptine, Coluracetam and Fasoracetam worth it?

I recently ordered a gram of Coluracetam and 2 grams of Fasoracetam from This was my first order from them. It went well, and the delivery was fast. First door-to-door nootropics delivery I ever got.

A bit about Coluracetam and Fasoracetam

Coluracetam is a nootropic that was initially developed and studied for the treatment of Alzheimer’s, but was later researched for major depressive disorder (MDD). Results from the latter suggest that it could be a potential medication for comorbid MDD with generalized anxiety disorder.

Fasoracetam is a nootropic that has been in a clinical trial for the potential treatment for ADHD.  Rat studies show potential amelioration of memory defects caused by a GABAb agonist called baclofen and upregulation of GABAb receptors.

Reviewing the stack

The taste of both was similar to Noopept (bitter), but not quite identical. Fasoracetam had a kind of grainy texture and the Coluracetam looked similar to Noopept. The Tianeptine had practically crystallised.

Stacking Coluracetam and Fasoracetam with Tianeptine of the sodium variety worked well at increasing my productivity. For a couple of hours… If I take it in the morning before leaving to work, just before lunch I will notice myself feeling a bit helpless and unable to get in the zone. It will gradually get worse – at home I will be more irritable than usual – until I hit the hay for a reset.

Might Tianeptine and its short half-life of 2.5-3 hours (4-9 hours in the elderly) be to blame? The other explanation is that, since I am not taking the stack regularly so the initial dose of Tianeptine might be too high. I aimed at 12mg, but sometimes ended up with 17mg instead. And that is just what the scale tells me.

I did not notice enhanced or vibrant colours (HD vision) from Coluracetam like some have. The only substance that had that kind of effect on me was Noopept. My current evaluation for these substances would be: not worth it. Don’t buy. Then again, you might react totally differently. If you are looking to try something, I would go with N-Acetyl SEMAX Amidate or NA-Selank (Amidate). The latter of which I have not tried yet, but am very interested in having a go again with NASA and the amidated version of Selank.
