The effect of picamilon cure in patients with chronic cerebrovascular insufficiency (CCVI) of atherosclerosie genesis, with vegetative vascular dystonia (VVD) and with hemicrania (all together 107 patients) has been studied. Estimation of picamilon action on inices of cerebral blood circulation by the echopulsegraphic method (Echo PG) and ultrasonic dopplerography (USDG) in comparison with other nootropic and vasoactive drugs has been carried out.  Picamilon influence on lipid metabolism, reological properties of blood and coagulation has been defined.  It was found that picamilon produced the therapeutical effect on cephalalgia of vascular with the exception of the associated form of hemicrania.  The drug posesses the vasoactive effect especially in patients with CCVI, causing improving of blood flow to cephalic veins, decreasing of cerebrovascular resistance and increasing of the volume of pulse fluctuations together with tranquillizing and nootropic effects.  Picamilon normalizes the hemostatic system practically without influencing the blood viscosity and decreases the content of atherogenous b-lipoproteins increasing insignificantly at the same time the content of cholesterin and -cholesterin in blood serum.

I have also found picamilon to be a helpful medication.  This Russian medication is a combination of GABA and niacin in the same molecule.  It is helpful for anxiety and depression, especially with cerebral vascular disorder with mood symptoms  continue
