Has anyone tried Vinposetine?

A friend recommended this supplement to optimize brain function and when I looked at the reviews online, I found that Tinnitus was listed as being one of the medical conditions it may help.

Vinposetine review:

While many medical studies are still being conducted, preliminary research indicates that vinpocetine is helpful with a number of diseases and conditions, including:

Age-related memory impairment,
Alzheimer's disease,
Clinical depression,
Conditions after a stroke,
Tinnitus,
Tremors,
Ulcers,
Vascular dementia, and
Vision conditions.

This supplement is available with a prescription in Japan and Europe, but it's over the counter in the US and Canada.

Has anyone tried this?

It sounds like an old fashioned radiator like the kind in old inner city apartments. Like steam coming out of a valve.I kept looking and looking and since I live in a condo with another unit above me. I can hear their plumbing. I hear when they flush and when they are...

    I have cancer

    I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
