Magne-B6 was used, together with anticonvulsive therapy, in the treatment of 25 patients with different forms of epilepsy. In all cases, psychiatric status of patients featured by depression, anxiety and some psychotic sighs. The drug was prescribed in the mean therapeutic dose during 28 days. Along with psychopathologic examination, a psychometric method, using self-rating scales for Zung anxiety and depression scale, SCL-90 and Global clinical impression (CGI) scale, was administered. Magne-B6 exerted a positive non-specific influence on patient's mental state, especially with regard to affective disorders. The positive effect of the drug emerged on 14th day of the treatment and achieved a statistically significant level to 28th day. The medication was more effective in asthenic and subdepressive syndromes, in encephalopathic syndrome the efficacy was lower. The drug was well tolerated and did not cause any side effects.
