Succinic acid bas been found to be able to potentiate the antihypoxic activity of vinpocetin. This property (potentiation) provided grounds for creating a new combined formulation containing vinpocetin and succinic acid, which has more marked antihypoxic activity than the initial single-substance vinpocetin formulation, along with antiamnestic and anticonvulsive activities.

Key words

Vinpocetin succinic acid antihypoxic activity synergism
