I recently received the following information on Pikamilone and would like
feedback on the validity of the assertions.

I have done a search on the internet Web and Usenet for "Pikamilone" and
have found 0 hits.


Pikamilone is an amazing powerful compound with antioxidant properties.  It
has been available in some parts of the world for over 25 years.

Its primary use has been to both treat and combat brain ageing and
associated disorders.

At lower dosage, 50mg TID will achieve a tranquilizing effect.

Increasing dosage to 100mg TID will bring about a stimulation effect and
increase endurance.

The effects of Pikamilone are felt quickly, most people will notice an
impact within one hour.

The body usually retains Pikamilone for up to six hours.

Pikamilone crosses the blood brain barrier easily, which is why the results
are normally experienced so rapidly.

Pikamilone is a cleverly combined combination of GABA and Niacin, the way
the two items are chemically bonded means the manufacturing process is
formidable and that is why we have taken a great deal of both care and time
in introduction of this exciting new product.

Studies prove it to be more stimulating than Piracetam and to have a more
pronounced effect than Vinpocetine.  Other studies have shown Pikamilone
has the ability to boost blood circulation, and blood supply to the brain,
in a manner far superior to the results achieved with either Hydergine or
Xanthinol Nicotinate.

Toxicity is extremely low.  LD50 is over 10 grams per kilo in mice.

Pikamilone has shown no carcinogenic properties.


There were 15 references to journal articles, but 14 of those references
were from USSR journals and primarily from the late seventies to early

Any information/opinions regarding Pikamilone are welcome!
