New salts of baclofen (4-amino-3-(para-chlorophenyl)-butyric acid) and its compositions with organic carbonic acids (citric, succinic, malic, oxalic, nicotinic, glutamic acids and glycine) exhibited neuroprotective and anticonvulsive effects. They reduced the intensity of the convulsive syndrome and postconvulsive psychoneurological disorders in animals exposed to the maximum electroshock and electroconvulsive shock. Analogs of baclofen containing citrate and to a lesser extent those containing glutamate and glycine were signifi cantly more active than the initial substance.
