What is Citicoline Sodium?
Citicoline Sodium is a brain metabolism activating drug that can promote the recovery of brain cell function, promote awakening, and improve cerebral circulation. Its indications are neurological sequelae caused by craniocerebral injury or cerebrovascular accident.
Cerebral infarction is a neurological deficit disease caused by blockage of intracranial blood vessels and is a type of ischemic stroke.
Brain tissue ischemia caused by cerebral infarction may lead to limb dysfunction; cognitive dysfunction may also occur, and the patient's memory, calculation ability, attention, thinking, etc. will be greatly reduced; language function may also occur Disorder, the patient's language system will have a series of problems, and the patient may not speak fluently or even have aphasia.
How does Citicoline work?
Citicoline sodium is used in ischemic and hemorrhagic stroke and its sequelae, brain trauma sequelae, cognitive impairment, ischemic hypoxic encephalopathy, optic atrophy and other diseases, among which the most widely used in cerebral infarction, cerebral Cognitive impairment caused by cerebrovascular diseases such as hemorrhage - vascular dementia.
The antioxidant component citicoline contained in it can effectively reduce vascular resistance and improve vascular function. The pharmacological effects are mainly divided into three parts: protecting the lipid structure of the cell membrane; stimulating the neurotransmitter system; promoting the energy metabolism of brain tissue.
How does citicoline sodium work?
Vascular dementia: As an activator of human metabolism, citicoline sodium can enter the brain tissue of the patient through the blood-brain barrier, improve the blood flow in the brain, help restore nerve function and accelerate the recovery of patients . In addition to improving cognitive impairment, citicoline sodium capsules can also reduce the incidence of sequelae of vascular dementia, and can effectively improve the prognosis.
Cerebral infarction: Research shows that Citicoline Sodium Capsules can significantly improve the cognitive function and living ability of patients with cerebral infarction. Moreover, it has less adverse drug reactions, and is a drug that can safely and effectively treat cerebral infarction.
Optic atrophy: Studies have shown that citicoline sodium capsules can effectively treat amblyopia in children and can effectively prevent the deterioration of visual field in glaucoma patients.
