Developed by a cosmic branch of pharmaceutical industry in Russia in the 80th, Phenotropil® (also known as Phenylpiracetam) was another nootropic included in the cosmonaut's kit. As a famous astronaut Alexander Serebrov said, who used phenylpiracetam during his 197-day flight, Phenotropil worked for him as an "equaliser": it decreased impulsivity and irritability - conditions that will always happen during a long-term stay in space. Phenotropil ® was developed because the state needed it at the time when there was no totally safe substitute with the same effects. This pharmaceutical was also tested a countless number of times on animals and was used on more than 500 patients across the country before becoming available to the general population.
The creator of Phenylpiracetam ® - Valentina Ahapkina - wanted to synthesise a pharmaceutical which is capable of unleashing the body energy without draining it. Phenotropil ® appeared to be her closest attempt.
The chemical compound of Phenotropil ® has the following effects:
- A moderate psychostimulating effect combined with anxiolytic properties i.e. mood lifting and anxiety reduction
- Adaptogenic effects, i.e. combating mental and physical fatigue under stress.
- Increased resistance of brain tissue to hypoxia and toxins.
- Combating mild depressions by increasing serotonyn, dopamine and noadrenaline in the brain.
- Better visual acuity and range.
- Increased tolerance to cold.
- Mild immunostimulating properties.
Phenotropil ® can be officially used both for healthy individuals experiencing various kinds of stress and also for those who have the following indications:
- Extreme work conditions e.g. excessive intellectual or physical requirements
- As a study aid for concentration improvement.
- Mild and moderate depressions
- Chronic fatigue syndrome
- Cerebrovascular diseases
- Alcohol hangover symptoms
- Other conditions characterised by reduced intellectual productivity
Although Phenotropil ® is a non habit-forming drug it is different from other Racetams in that it might cause a mild receptor down-regulation in certain individuals when taken for long periods of time.
One pack of Phenotropil ® contains 10 or 30 pills, each of 100 Mg of active ingredient, which is sufficient for 10 or 30 days of administration respectively.
