Vinpocetine

by

I’m reading The Better Brain Book by David Perlmutter, MD.  He notes that in using Vinpocetine with dementia patients there is  slight to moderate improvement in two-thirds of all stroke patients receiving the substance. I wonder why this drug is not being recommended for Alzheimer’s patients.  I also wonder if it can be used as a preventative for dementia and Alzheimer’s.
