Noopept (N-phenylacetyl-L-prolylglycine ethyl ester -- JSC LEKKO Pharmaceuticals), also known as omberacetam, is promoted as a "nootropic," a substance taken to enhance memory, cognitive function and/or mood. In Russia, where it was developed, it is apparently sold as a drug for improving learning and memory and improving cognitive function after brain damage (such as from concussion or stroke), although the evidence for this is limited. In the U.S., it is not approved as drug nor can it be legally sold as dietary supplement. (Drugs that are chemically similar to Noopept, including piracetam, aniracetam, oxiracetam and phenylpiracetam, are also not permitted to be sold as supplement ingredients in the U.S.)
Noopept should not be taken by people with high blood pressure or certain other medical conditions. For more information about Noopept, see the full answer >>
