Difference between them?[edit]

Its good that someone put up fat or water soluble, or where its popular. Additionally though, someone should include information about them so that someone interested in purchasing them can decide on which one. Personally, I don't care how soluble it is, I want to know which one has any scientific proof. So if anybody wants to include some of that it would be great. I have only looked up piracetam myself and it doesn't seem like it has a solid scientific backing. Rjkd12 20:48, 7 July 2007 (UTC)

Rolipram a racetam?[edit]

Could rolipram be added as a racetam, as it contains the pyrrolidine ring, and is arguably a nootropic. --Mark PEA 23:09, 1 August 2007 (UTC)

Neuser, V (früher NATTERMANN , Köln)  :Nimodipin und Nefiracetam -Nootropia im Vergleich.

Als wir vor bald 50 Jahren Nefiracetam fanden, glaubten wir zunächst an eine Substanz,die mit dem Nimodipin.vergleichbare pharmakologische Eigenschaften zeigte. So fanden wir vergleichbare Ergebnisse in den üblichen Testen zum Angst/Abwehrverhalten, zur Motilität und Kletterfähigkeit wie auch beim Überleben einer durch NaNitrit induzierten Hypoxie. Nur bei Überprüfung einer cerebralen Ischämie war Nefiracetam (ein Piracetam-Analogon) dem 1,4 Dihydropyridin Nimodipin unterlegen.. Nefiracetam erhielt den Namen Translon und wurde an die Fa. . Daiichi verkauft. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 12:14, 18 February 2008 (UTC)

I added nicoracetam to the list of racetams. If I get more time, I'll make a wiki for it. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 00:09, 1 March 2009 (UTC)

Should we use this page to include all of the known racetams as part of a comprehensive list, rather than a list of examples? Somethingstranger (talk) 04:58, 2 March 2009 (UTC)

Recent legal developments[edit]

Recently all racetams have been difficult to acquire. Are they being scheduled or banned? (talk) 16:46, 29 April 2009 (UTC)
