Description

Piracetam Pharmacodynamics
The active ingredient is piracetam, a cyclic derivative of gamma-aminobutyric acid (GABA).
Piracetam is a nootropic; it directly affects the brain, improving cognitive processes such as learning, memory, attention, and mental performance. It affects the central nervous system (CNS) in different ways: it changes the speed of excitation distribution in the brain, improves metabolic processes in nerve cells, improves microcirculation, affects blood rheological characteristics without having a vasodilatory effect. It improves communication between the cerebral hemispheres and synaptic conduction in the neocortical structures, improves cerebral blood flow. Piracetam inhibits platelet aggregation and restores the configuration properties of the outer membrane of rigid red blood cells, as well as the ability of the latter to pass through the vessels of the microcirculatory channel. At a dose of 9.6 g it reduces the concentration of fibrinogen and Willebrand factor by 30-40 % and prolongs the bleeding time. Piracetam has a protective and restorative effect in impaired brain function due to hypoxia and intoxication. Piracetam reduces the severity and duration of vestibular nystagmus.

Treatment of dyslexia in children over 8 years of age (in combination with other treatments): 3.2 g divided into 2 equal doses.
  • In mild CPN (IQ 50-79 ml/min) – 2/3 dose divided into 2-3 doses; in moderate CPN (IQ 30-49 ml/min) – 1/3 dose divided into 2 doses; in severe CPN (IQ 20-30 ml/min) – 1/6 dose once.
