Topic: Drug Effect Questionaire (DEQ) self-administered Nootropic Studies
The DEQ is a commonly used questionnaire used to determine subjective effects across a variety of substances. Some study has been done to show it's efficacy for use: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3624068/
Instead of using a line drawn, though, I'm going to use a number line from 1 - 10 for easier analysis, where 1 is "Not at all", and 10 is "Extremely".

NOT AT ALL [ 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 ] EXTREMELY
1.) Do you FEEL a drug effect right now?
2.) Are you HIGH right now?
3.) Do you DISLIKE any of the effects you are feeling right now?
4.) Do you LIKE any of the effects you are feeling right now?
5.) Would you like MORE of the drug, right now?
In addition to the "standard" DEQ-5, I'm also going to tack on additional metrics:
1.) Very briefly describe how you are feeling right now.
2.) List any additional drugs or supplements you have taken today.
3.) Did you eat before (or right after) ingestion?
If anyone starts on any nootropics or anything, feel free to fill this out daily as well. If you skip a day probably note that too. I don't have any nootropics to test that haven't been sitting around for a long time, so I'm gonna get some and we'll see how it goes. Note that it may be easier to print out a version of the form for tracking than logging into the forums and filling it out every day.
I purchased a bunch of Aniracetam so I'm gonna give that one a go, possibly add something onto it after a month or two if it doesn't do much.
