The fixed combination containing 5 mg of vinpocetine and 400 mg of pyracetam (vinpotropil) was prescribed to 349 patients with dyscirculatory encephalopathy, I-II stages in dose one capsule three times a day during 3 months. After this treatment, repeated neuropsychological testing showed significant diminishing of dysexecutive cognitive impairment linked with frontal lobes dysfunction.
