Phenibut Instructions 2


Phenibut® normalizes metabolic processes in the nerve cells of the brain. The active substance of the drug Phenibut (aminophenyl butyric acid hydrochloride) can be considered as a derivative of γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA) or as a derivative of β-phenylethylamine. Phenibut has nootropic activity and, as a derivative of GABA, possesses an anxiolytic (tranquilizing) effect. It does not affect cholinergic or adrenergic receptors.

The drug reduces tension, anxiety, fear, and improves sleep, hence it is used for the treatment of neuroses and preoperatively. Phenibut prolongs and enhances the action of hypnotics, narcotics, neuroleptics, and antiparkinsonian agents. Phenibut lacks anticonvulsant activity. It prolongs the latent period of nystagmus and shortens its duration and severity. The drug reduces manifestations of asthenia and vegetative symptoms, including headache, feeling of heaviness in the head, sleep disturbances, irritability, emotional lability, and increases mental performance. Psychological indicators (attention, memory, speed, and accuracy of sensorimotor reactions) improve under the influence of Phenibut, unlike the effects of tranquilizers. Patients with asthenia and emotionally labile patients experience improved subjective well-being from the first days of therapy, increased interest and initiative, and motivation for activity.


Aminophenyl butyric acid is well absorbed after oral administration and penetrates into all tissues of the body, easily crossing the blood-brain barrier. In the brain tissue, approximately 0.1% of the administered dose of the drug penetrates, with significantly greater penetration observed in individuals of young and elderly age. It is metabolized in the liver, with 80-95% converted into pharmacologically inactive metabolites. About 5% is excreted unchanged by the kidneys, partially excreted in the bile. Cumulation is not observed with repeated administration.

Meniere’s disease, dizziness associated with dysfunction of the vestibular analyzer of various origins

During exacerbation, 750 mg is prescribed 3-4 times a day for 5-7 days, then 250-500 mg 3 times a day for 5-7 days, and then – 250 mg once a day for 5 days. For the treatment of dizziness with vestibular analyzer dysfunctions of vascular and traumatic origin – 250 mg 3 times a day for 12 days.
