Citicoline

PRESCRIPTION REQUIRED

Alternate Brand Name(s) : Citicoline, Strocit

Citicoline is a psychostimulantnootropic, prescribed for Parkinsons disease, cerebrovascular disorders and head injury.

It is a pyrimidine-5-nucleotide which serves as an essential precursor in the synthesis of lecithin (phosphatidylcholine) and other phospholipids. It is used for increasing, maintaining and repairing the membranes and the neuronal function in situations such as ischemia traumatic injuries by increasing the synthesis of hosphatidylcholine and other phospholipidis.

Recommendation:

The recommended doses is 100 - 500 mg once or twice a day by IV/IM Acute stage of cerebral infarction : 1000mg once a day IV for two consecutive weeks.

It also enhances. acetylchollne synthesis, and might thus ameliorate symptoms caused by the stroke induced loss of cholinergic neurons. Another mechanism by which Citicoline may have a more acute effect on the outcome of stroke. patients relates to its ability to reduce free fatty acid accumulation at the site of injury, and thus to prevent further damage. Citicoline avoids, reduces or reverses the effects of ischemia and/or hypoxia in major part of animals and cellular models studied and acts in the cranial traumatic forms, reduces and limits the injuries to the membranes of the nerve cells, re-establishes the sensitivity and the function of the regulatory intracellular enzymes and accelerates the re-absorption of the cerebral edema. Thus considerable evidence accumulated supports the use of Citicoline for increasing and maintaining and repairing the membranes and the neuronal function in situations such as ischemia and traumatic injuries. In patients with senile dementia, Citicoline reduces the evolution of damages.
