Anyone else using piracetam for a loved one?

As I do have faith that one day my fathers Alzheimer's Disease will be treated one day.  "Let go and let god" they say.  We finally found something that treats alzheimer's and we have noticed much improvement.  I was reading through research documents from www.smartdrugsforthought.com and found several profound medical documents and studies with the use of a cognitive and memory supplement, called Piracetam, in Alzheimer's patients.  

Interested in memory enhancement, the pharmaceutical industry has naturally taken the route of trying to develop drugs to do the job, because as synthetic substances, they can be patented and profited from. It has researched the use of smart drugs for both Alzheimer's patients and for the much larger market of people suffering and that are victims from so-called Age-Associated Memory Decline(Alzheimer's Disease).

Two approaches have been adopted. The first is to create drugs which will slow down or block the
breakdown of neurotransmitters. In this group, the drug Piracetam has been widely researched and
found to have broadly beneficial effects and results on memory enhancement. The drug belongs to a drug group called nootropics, related to pyroglutamate, which is an amino acid.

-Piracetam increases Alertness (by an average of 50%) in Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia patients.

-Piracetam alleviates Depression (by an average of 32%) in Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia patients.

-Piracetam improves Memory (by an average of 45%) in Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia patients.

-Piracetam alleviates the Paranoia that often occurs during the progression of Alzheimer's Disease.

-Piracetam alleviates Sleep Disorders in Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia patients.

(The authors note that impairment in the function of cholinergic neurons is responsible for some of the loss of mental function associated with Alzheimer’s disease. They refer to a study in which piracetam was found to increase the number of cholinergic receptors in the brain. It is inferred that this enhancement of cholinergic function may be the mechanism by which piracetam provides therapeutic benefits to Alzheimer’s disease patients.)

My grandmother has dementia, however I do not speak much to her as she lives very far away. I took care of people with Alzheimer's for 6 years and I loved every second of it. I am sorry that I am probably wasting your time, I just want to say that I hope there is a cure soon. Alzheimer's is one of the cruelest diseases ever. God bless you and your father. If I may ask, how long has he had this terrible disease?
Take care,

He has had it in senile dementia status for about 5 years.  We recently use Piracetam and Hydergine for this situation we are in.  I can say that it has been helping much more than anything else in the past like coconut oil, ketones, etc.   Honestly, he is able to drive again and remember most of the marketing techniques he has in the trading world.  umm.  He is currently a Director in the IT world at the age of 59 and I don't want him to ever fall off the edge.  He is very sharp and I support him all the way.  smartdrugsforthought.com has helped us with this situation to say the least.  I do hate this disease and I hope to never get this in my system.  You are not wasting my time though, I really appreciate your time and efforts in responding to this question.  God bless you and your grandmother as well.  I know there will be a full cure for it sometime soon.  I just hope it will be soon enough.  So far the only things that can help with Alzheimer's naturally is gingko biloba and Piracetam.  We started with the gingko and didn't notice much of an cognitive increase but we did notice (as I am also taking these for school lol) that Piracetam has done a number of wonders in cognitive functions and ability.  We have experienced visual clarity and improvements with verbal memory as well.  Let's just say that we both take more than the recommended amount.  To note on that dosage, Neuro-Boost has been found to have absolutely no side effects even at high dosages.  I believe there is no hazardous toxic levels in Piracetam either.

Here is an article on both:
It has an 85.89% effective rate according to a clinical trial ( Zhuang Haixin and Yu Zhaoan, Jilin Journal of Traditional Chinese Medicine, 4(28), 2008 ). 78 patients between the ages of 65 and 78 were treated with this herbal product for 2 months, 6 grams a time, three times a day. 39 patients between the ages of 66 and 75 were treated with a chemical drug Piracetam tablets for 2 months, 0.8 gram a time, three times a day. Results: According to brain electrical activity mapping, 85.89 % of herb takers were improved; 41.03% of Piracetam takers were improved.
