It has been found that Ukrain, given intraperitoneally (i.p.), did not influence
the threshold for maximal electroconvulsions in mice. Ukrain in doses of 9.5 and
19 mg/kg significantly enhanced the protective efficacy of valproate, decreasing
the ED50 values. However, Ukrain had no effect on the protection provided by
diazepam, carbamazepine, diphenylhydantoin and phenobarbital. The combined
treatment with Ukrain and anti-epileptic drugs did not cause any signs of
toxicity.
