Piracetam (sold under many brand names) is a medication in the racetams group, with chemical name 2-oxo-1-pyrrolidine acetamide ( C6H10N2O2).

Piracetam works by increasing acetylcholine uptake and utilization in specific regions of the brain responsible for memory formation.1 Like choline, piracetam can work on its own, but delivers a much stronger punch when combined with choline.
