INSTRUCTION FOR THE SPECIALIST.

Description of the drug approved by the manufacturer for the printed edition of 2017.

PHARMACHOLOGIC EFFECT

Nootropic preparation.
Citicoline, being the predecessor of the key ultrastructural components of the cell membrane (mainly phospholipids), has a wide spectrum of action: it facilitates the restoration of damaged cell membranes, inhibits the effect of phospholipases, preventing the excessive formation of free radicals, and also preventing the death of cells, influencing the mechanisms of apoptosis.
In an acute period of stroke reduces the volume of damaged tissue, improves cholinergic transmission.

In case of craniocerebral trauma, it reduces the duration of post-traumatic coma and the severity of neurological symptoms, in addition, it helps to reduce the duration of the recovery period.

Citicoline improves symptoms of hypoxia: memory impairment, emotional lability, lack of initiative, difficulties in performing daily activities and self-service.Effective in the treatment of cognitive, sensory and motor neurologic disorders of degenerative and vascular etiology.

In chronic cerebral ischemia, citicoline is effective in the treatment of disorders such as memory impairment, lack of initiative, difficulties arising from daily activities and self-care.
Increases the level of attention and consciousness, and also reduces the manifestation of amnesia.
PHARMACOKINETICS

Suction

Citicoline is well absorbed when taken orally.
Absorption after oral administration is almost complete, and bioavailability is approximately the same as after intravenous administration.
Distribution

Citicoline is largely distributed in the structures of the brain, with the rapid introduction of choline fractions into structural phospholipids and cytidine fractions into cytidine nucleotides and nucleic acids.
Citicoline penetrates the cephalic and actively integrates into cellular, cytoplasmic and mitochondrial membranes, forming part of the fraction of structural phospholipids.
Metabolism

After ingestion, the drug is metabolized in the intestine and in the liver with the formation of choline and cytidine.

With iv and / or injection, citicoline is metabolized in the liver with the formation of choline and cytidine.

After oral administration or parenteral (IV, IM), the concentration of choline in the blood plasma increases significantly.

Excretion

Only 15% of the administered dose of citicoline is excreted from the human body: less than 3% - by the kidneys and through the intestine and about 12% - with the exhaled air.

In the excretion of citicoline with urine, two phases can be identified: the first phase, lasting about 36 hours, during which the rate of elimination rapidly decreases, and the second phase, during which the rate of excretion decreases much more slowly.
The same is observed in the exhaled air - the elimination rate rapidly decreases after about 15 hours, and then decreases much more slowly.
INDICATIONS

- acute period of ischemic stroke (as part of complex therapy);

- the recovery period of ischemic and hemorrhagic strokes;

- craniocerebral trauma (CCT), acute (as part of complex therapy) and the recovery period;

- cognitive and behavioral disorders in degenerative and vascular diseases of the brain.

DOSING MODE

Solution for oral administration

Take with meals or between meals.
Before use, the preparation can be diluted in a small amount of water (120 ml or 1/2 cup).
Assign 500-2000 mg per day (5-10 ml 1-2 times / day or 1 sachet 1-2 times / day).
