Yes, nootropics are considered to be drugs. However, unlike many other drugs, nootropics are generally regarded as being safe and non-toxic when used as directed. Nootropics are often referred to as "smart drugs" because they are believed to enhance cognitive function, memory, creativity, and motivation. However, not all nootropics are created equal and their effects and safety can vary depending on the specific compound and dosage used. It is important to research and understand the potential risks and benefits of any nootropic before use, and to consult with a healthcare professional if you have any concerns.
