What is Pyracezine (Piracetam/Cinnarizine) used for?
Pyracezine contains Piracetam (a nootropic) and Cinnarizine (an antihistamine and calcium-channel blocker). These two medicines work together toincrease the blood flow to the brain and to enhance the metabolic processes in the brain. Pyracezine can be used in the treatment of several cerebovascular issues. It is also used as a nootropic to enhance cognition and memory.
The two active ingredients in Pyracezine have a different mechanism of action, but work in synergy to inhance each other's effectiveness.
Piracetam is a nootropic. It enhances the metabolic processes in the brain. It does this by increasing protein metabolism, utilization of glucose, and resistance to hypoxia. It also improves interneuronal transmission in the CNS.
Cinnarizine is an antihistamine and calcium-channel blocker. It promotes cerebral blood flow, increasing the amount of oxygen that can be delivered to the brain.
Pyracezine is indicated in the treatment of several conditions disorders that require increases blood flow and oxygen transport to the brain. This includes conditions such as:
Pyracezine can also be used as a nootropic. The increased blood flow and improved oxygenation along with increasing protein metabolism can lead to improved concentration, cognition and memory.
