Doxiderol is more of a mild alertness just enough so that your productive all day and it actually helps me sleep better. I don't think its a placebo either. I mean nootropics have been around since forever. I first heard about them from Tim Ferriss (the guy who wrote 4 hour work week and 4 hour body.) He would take Huperzine before he tried to learn a new language. It's all about either increasing neurotransmitters in your brain, increasing brain flood flow or reducing stress (Bacopa) which keeps you more focused.
Oh I wasn't saying its definitely a placebo. I was just saying that since it isn't prescription drug, it is either mild in its effects and works, or in the worst case, its just marketing hype pushing a placebo. So in the worst case you're out however many bucks it costs without at least damaging your body...which can't be said about most other things people use to "study better". Of course it it works, then its just awesome!
