Below is a list of potential dangers associated with using nootropics. Keep in mind that you may not experience any of these dangers in your usage, but another person could. It is important to avoid assuming that taking nootropics results in optimal brain functioning over the long-term.
There are some factors to consider when thinking about potential dangers of nootropics. Perhaps the two biggest dangers to consider are the: brain development of the user as well as the dosage that a person is taking. Other secondary factors to consider include: the specific nootropic (and its mechanism of action), how long the person has taken it, as well as how frequently they use it.
