Citicoline is essentially an activator of central nervous cell energy metabolism. It can effectively promote the energy metabolism of brain cells and improve brain function. It is often used clinically to treat central system diseases such as cerebral infarction, brain atrophy, and Alzheimer's disease. Clinical studies have shown that It can effectively protect brain cells and promote nervous system recovery.
Citicoline has a wide range of clinical applications. It is often used to treat central system damage caused by craniocerebral injuries and cerebrovascular accidents. It also has a certain preventive and therapeutic effect on a variety of chronic central nervous system degenerative diseases. However, it has different therapeutic effects. The method of use is different depending on the disease, so you must pay attention to individualized medication. Clinically, citicoline is commonly used to treat the following four diseases.
1. Cerebral infarction
Citicoline can treat both acute cerebral infarction and convalescent cerebral infarction. In the acute phase, citicoline injection is often used clinically, and combined with basic treatments such as anticoagulation and thrombolysis, it can effectively improve the microcirculation of brain tissue and the energy metabolism of brain cells, while protecting the structure and function of brain cells. , to promote the recovery of damaged nerve cells; during the remission period, oral citicoline is often used in clinical practice. Through long-term use, it can shrink the focus of cerebral infarction and protect brain function. It can also promote the recovery of limb function and improve the prognosis of patients with cerebral infarction.
2. Central nervous system damage caused by craniocerebral trauma
Craniocerebral trauma refers to head tissue damage caused by violent action on the head, mainly including skull fractures and brain injuries. Citicoline is one of the commonly used drugs in the clinical treatment of craniocerebral trauma. Clinical studies have shown that in patients with craniocerebral trauma, injection of citicoline can effectively protect neuronal cells and myelin sheaths, improve cerebral circulation, reduce damage to brain tissue caused by defects and hypoxia caused by trauma, and reduce risks such as brain swelling and brain herniation. Chance of Symptoms.
3. Brain atrophy
Brain atrophy is a degenerative disease of the central nervous system that is common in the elderly and is a predisposing factor for various diseases such as stroke and Alzheimer's disease. Citicoline is one of the commonly used drugs for clinical brain atrophy. Clinical studies have shown that citicoline can effectively improve the metabolic level of brain cells, promote blood supply to the brain, protect the integrity of neuronal cell structure and function, and can effectively delay brain atrophy. , improve various symptoms such as headache, dizziness, memory loss and so on.
4. Chronic insufficient blood supply to the brain
Chronic cerebral insufficiency is one of the common diseases in the elderly. Its clinical manifestations are headache, dizziness, etc., and even syncope in severe cases, which seriously threatens the health of the elderly. Citicoline is one of the drugs used to treat chronic cerebral insufficiency. Clinical studies have shown that citicoline can improve the blood supply to the brain, especially promote brain tissue microcirculation. It can also promote the metabolic level of brain cells, protect brain function, and relieve headaches, dizziness and other symptoms.
