Bromantane is primarily known as a mild psychostimulant, anxiolytic (anxiety-reducing), energy-booster, and an adaptogen. It has been used in Russia since the late 1980s without a prescription by the athletes and soldiers for increased performance. Bromantane is well-known as a stimulant and an anxiolytic.[1] It is also reported to improve physical and mental performance, and hence could be considered a performance-enhancing drug.[2]


Bromantane is a nootropic that seems to have many benefits in the way it enhances energy for both mental and physical work, and reduces some serious moods such as anxiety, stress and depression. The use of Bromantane helps us enhance our immune system, increase our muscle strength, and increase in memory and learning. It also helps to detoxify liver, reduces overheating and protects against hyperthermia.
The most common health benefits of Bromantane include –

  • Improves mental and physical performance [3]
  • Reduces anxiety and stress [5]
  • People report it helps them who have Parkinson’s disease by increasing dopamine levels in the brain
  • Increases endurance [8]
  • Relieves brain fog [5]
  • reduces pain sensitivity and stimulates the central dopamine  and the nervous system [9]
  • Alleviates the effects of neurasthenia including fatigue, irritability and emotional disturbance [10]

Bromantane is most ordinarily used in Russia relieve of nervous breakdown, a somewhat imprecise medical condition that’s marked by fatigue, irritability, anxiety, anhedonia, and depressed mood.
Bromantane’s stimulant effect is different from traditional psychostimulants in that it is an agent of non-exhaustive action (no increase in oxygen consumption or body heat). [4]
It additionally has the effect of accelerating mental focus thus it’ll be easier to complete an equivalent tasks with full concentration. Achieving most concentration without the risk of addiction makes this nootropic popular to several people.

How it works

Bromantane will increase the number serotonin and dopamine neurotransmitters that are present between nerve cells. It causes huge numbers of fopamine neurotransmitters to bind with dopamine receptors that then causes a cascade of reactions creating you feel motivated, energized and euphoric for a certain length of your time.[5]
Another increase caused by Bromantane is that the presence of 5-HT and 5-HIAA within the cortical region of the brain. This can be the part of the brain responsible for attention, reward, memory tasks, planning and motivation. Bromantane enhances these tasks permitting someone to perform more efficiently. A study was performed on 10 healthy adults where it showed single dose of Bromantane improved their productive capabilities, vigilance and motor performances.[5]
Bromantane is also usually classified as an actoprotector, that is, a drug that “enhances body stability against physical loads without increasing oxygen consumption or heat production. Or, in short, actoprotectors are synthetic adaptogens with a significant capacity to improve physical performance.”[7]


Researchers say that there are no established side effects in the scientific literature surrounding bromantane. It is incredibly well-tolerated. However, excessive activation and sleep disorders may occur. Consult your physician before using any medications.


Bromantane is a very distinct drug in term of its effects. But it seems limited in its potential by its suggested dosage of 50 – 100 mg daily. However, a maximum daily dose can be of 200 mg in 2 divided 100 mg dose. [6]
