A study was conducted of the effectiveness of the drug WinPatrol on the subject of the synergism of the claimed pharmaceutical compositions of Vinpocetine and piracetam.

Feature a discuss edavanna sick.

In a study of the effectiveness of the drug WinPatrol were included 90 participants (48 men and 42 women) aged from 42 to 70 years (mean age of 56.2 years) in accordance with the criteria of inclusion and exclusion (table 6).

Table 6

Criteria for inclusion and exclusion of studies

Expressed speech disorders
The use of up to 3 months from the start of the study drugs included Vinpocetine and piracetam

72 patient suffered an ischemic stroke in the carotid pool, 18 patients in the vertebral-basilar pool. Time from stroke corresponded to the early recovery period (4 weeks to 6 months). Causes of cerebrovascular disorders were Atheros Eros cerebral or precerebral arteries, hypertensive heart disease, heart rhythm disorder, or a combination thereof. In all patients the diagnosis of cerebral stroke was confirmed by computer tomografia or a magnetic resonance tomografia.

Patients received a standardized 3-week course of therapy, differing in only one component:

group 1 (main) consisted of 30 patients (17 men and 13 women, mean age of 55.9±3.4 years)who received 2 capsules of WinPatrol 3 times a day, oral;

Comparison group:

group 2, 20 patients (10 women and 10 men, mean age of 56.4±3.2 years) received only Vinpocetine dose of 30 mg/day, oral;

3 the group of 20 patients (9 women and 11 men, mean age 53,1±3.1 years) received only piracetam dose of 1600 mg/day, oral;

4 the group of 20 patients (10 men and 10 women, mean age 57,0±2.3 years) received Vinpocetine dose of 30 mg/day and piracetam dose of 1600 mg/day, oral.

Research methods

All patients on the 1st and 21st day of the study were used to assess neurological and neuropsychological status. In the study of neurological status was carried out score the severity of subjective symptoms: headache, dizziness, tinnitus, sleep disorders, fatigue and reducing the memory. To use this 5-step score rating the scale with standardized criteria for assessing the severity of each subjective symptom (from 0 (no disturbance) to 4 (serious violations)). For attention assessment used a sample of Bourdon. The dynamics of the levels of depression, anxiety and hypochondria were investigated by using the scale Beck, tests Spielberg and Sheehan.

The results and discussion.

From the study were excluded 2 patients of the main group and 6 from the comparison groups. The reason in most cases was the need for correction of standard therapy, unrelated to the development of side effects. Only 5% of patients receiving WinPatrol, was marked by the appearance of pain in the stomach and dyspeptic phenomena, while similar complaints were noted in 20% of patients 4 comparison group receiving both Vinpocetine and piracetam. This is probably due to the mechanical effect of increased number of tablets.

On the background of therapy positive dynamics of the patient in the form of a regression of subjective symptoms (table 7).

In the main group (receiving WinPatrol) showed a significant (p<0.05) decrease as the average rating score for the assessment of severity of headache, dizziness, reduced memory and tiredness, and the number of patients with assessment for this indicator exceeded one point, i.e. the complaint absent or rarely bother. In this group showed a significant difference in the distribution of patients according to the severity of complaints from 0 to 4 for the symptoms of: headache, dizziness, and fatigue (p<0,05). In the comparison group occurred is the Eney a clear positive trend status.

The validation results of the attention of the examined patients are presented in table 8.

As a result of the treatment of changes in indicators of psychological status of all studied patients (table). A significant decrease of anxiety level on the test Spielberg noted in patients 3 and 4 groups, however, the figures obtained before and after treatment were consistent with a moderate level of anxiety (21-40 points). In the group of patients receiving WinPatrol, averages those is that Spielberg after treatment began to correspond to an insignificant level alarm (17.6 points). Depression scale Beck under the influence of the spent course of treatment tended to decrease, however, it is significant differences in any of the groups is not observed. Maximum changes in indicators of somatization anxiety (hypochondria) test Sheehan noted in the groups of patients receiving WinPatrol and Vinpocetine.

Thus, on a background of reception of WinPatrol positive dynamics of the main neurological and neuropsychological parameters was observed already after 3 weeks. The course of Vinpocetine or piracetam version monotherapy led to changes in some indicators. The application of a combination of Vinpocetine and piracetam (group 4) showed a similar trend of indicators compared with the dynamics in patients of the main group), but much less pronounced and not always reaching sustainable reliable differences from the figures before treatment. Dynamic monitoring of the status of patients with early recovery period of ischemic stroke allowed to objectify clinical value combination of metabolic and vasoactive therapy in a combined drug. Drug WinPatrol enhances the metabolism of the brain as expense attributable to the actions nootropic component (piracetam), and by increasing blood flow and microcirculation (de is the effect of Vinpocetine). Patients reported good tolerability and a more convenient form using one tablet WinPatrol compared with two pills nootropic and vasoactive drugs.
