Phenibut, sold under the brand names Noofen and Citrocard, is a central depressant which is used in Russia for a variety of indications. It has also been reported by some researchers to possess nootropic effects due to its ability to improve neurological functions, medical citation needed] but others have not observed these effects. It is generally accepted that phenibut has anxiolytic effects in both animal models and in humans.
Phenibut is chemically related to the neurotransmitter γ-aminobutyric acid (GABA). It is believed to act as a selective GABAB receptor agonist, similarly to baclofen; studies are conflicting as to whether phenibut also acts as a GABAA receptor agonist. More recently, phenibut has been found to act preferentially as a blocker of α2δ subunit-containing voltage-gated calcium channels, similarly to gabapentin and pregabalin. As such, by definition, phenibut is a gabapentinoid.
