Depersonalization/derealization and Vinpocetine

I suffer from chronic derealization also called dissociation. I’ve been taking Vinpocetine for almost a week. Today is my second or third time taking two tablets. I noticed decreased derealization/dissociation. I’ve read that depersonalization disorder is correlated with decreased metabolism in a certain part of the brain. Vinpocetine increases cerebral metabolism. Maybe there is a connection?

Interesting - did your doctor tell you to do this, or is this experimentation?

and:

Nothing comes up in pubmed for derealisation and vinpocetine.
