In brief: Cerebral blood flow

Carbamazepine is a good agent for seizures, but can be associated with cognitive side effects.
If the issue is with blood flow in brain, additional details need to be provided. As for Vinpocetine (Cavinton) there is anecdotal evidence of improvement of blood flow, but there is less experience with that drug in regulated markets (eg US FDA) to comment on usage.
