Pantogam (Template:Lang-ru) is a medicine allegedly having some nootropic qualities and widely used in Russia to treat a variety of neurological, psychological and psychiatric conditions.



The comound on which this drug is based is a homologe of pantothenic acid, homopantothenic acid. While pantothenic acid is the amide between D-pantoate and beta-alanine, homopantothenic acid is the amide between D-pantoate and Gamma-aminobutyric acid. This change leads to an additional CH2 in the molecule. [1]
