Hello doctor,

My age is 21. I am going to take Piracetam for admission test exam. I am in a problem. Please suggest me a dosage.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I can certainly understand your concern. I have worked through your attached query in detail. Many of your symptoms are not related to memory loss. These are symptoms of a mood disorder. Piracetam is not the right medication here. You require antidepressant medicines to improve your cognition since memory disturbances are prevalent in depression too. In case if you like to consider Piracetam, you can take it as 400 mg every 12th hourly after discussing with your physician. Post your further questions if any.


The Probable causes:

Academic stressors.

Investigations to be done:

Complete Thyroid profile, and complete hemogram.

Probable diagnosis:

Mood disorder.
