Anyone tried Piracetam to help with the twitches?

I tried this supplement today, and it tastes pretty bad in water, in fact it's one of the worst i have ever tasted... mainly, i want to see if i get any cognitive benefits, rather than a reduction of twitching.

So many supplements to try : (

It's been about 5 days without any observable improvement in twitching @ one and a half grams per day, but it really does seem to give some nice mental clarity and help memory recall/processing, so it's a good supplement IMO :P

It's supposedly a popular study supplement for college students

I took it about two weeks, and saw no noticeable improvement in twitching, but no negative effects either. It really does seem to increase one's mental capabilities, but you don't always need an optimal mind to have good days :)

I've kind of moved past my twitching - I feel so much better not thinking about it.

I'm able to drink coffee to boost my mind again now that my anxiety is practically nonexistent (today I had 4 cups with no probs !!), and I think drinking adequate milk, multivitamins, calcium-magnesium tablets, wholesome food and avoiding sugars + extremely trans-fatty foods has helped me greatly, in addition to getting lots of sunlight (you don't want to have to wait a Whole nother year to be able to get sun exposure!! ). And most of all, getting enough good sleep. I think at one point in my period i didn't sleep at all for weeks.
