Oxiracetam is a nootropic drug of the racetam family. It is similar to, but far stronger than piracetam and aniracetam.[citation needed]

Additional recommended knowledge

Several animal studies suggest that the substance is safe even when high doses are consumed for a long period of time. However the mechanism of action of oxiracetam is still a matter of research.
