Categorization[edit]

Started categorizing, more to come.. (Ccroberts( t · c · g ) 16:36, 23 July 2007 (UTC))

Expansion[edit]

More needs to be added here, no? What about the serotonin agonists like LSD? What about MDMA?

EDIT: Furthermore, not all racetams are nootropic. Check Seletracetam for example.

  • I would not exactly call MDMA or LSD nootropics. But I just added a ton of RCs that do more closely meet the definition of nootropics. 3AlarmLampscooter (talk) 20:57, 10 July 2013 (UTC)

Censoring the template[edit]

This template is highly inconsistent with the current nootropic article, which it's suppose to summarize in the form of a navbox. The compounds listed here are mostly just a collection of drugs that are part of a putative nootropic drug class. In order to avoid issues with both verifiability and content forking, a compound that is included in this template needs to cite at least 1 reliable medical source that asserts that it enhances a particular cognitive function in either the article on that compound or the nootropic article.

Since a POV fork involving medical claims (i.e., "drug X is a nootropic") is a pretty significant issue, I'm going to censor this navbox until it can be revised to include only compounds that satisfy the inclusion criterion which I've described above. Seppi333 (Insert ) 23:02, 20 March 2017 (UTC)
