(Citicoline 500 mg tablets/injection)
INTICOL Tablets & Injection contains Citicoline. Citicoline is also called as cytidine diphosphate choline belongs to the group of biomolecules in living systems known as “nucleotides”. Citicoline seems to increase dopamine receptor densities (a brain chemical) called phosphatidylcholine. This brain chemical is important for brain function. Citicoline might also decrease brain tissue damage when the brain is injured. It helps in the biosynthesis of cell membrane phospholipids. Citicoline also operates to increase the blood flow to the brain along with oxygen uptake and glucose metabolism.
Citicoline belongs to the class of nootropic and neurotropics.
One INTICOL Tablet or INTICOL Injection once a day or as directed by Physician.
INTICOL Tablets and Injection can be used in the treatment of the following conditions:
- Alzheimer’s disease and dementia
- Head trauma and age-related memory loss
- Parkinson’s disease
- Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD)
Citicoline is a pyrimidine 5’-nucleotide which serves as an essential precursor in the synthesis of lecithin (phosphatidylcholine) and other phospholipids. It has ability to increase the synthesis of phosphatidylcholine, the primary neuronal membrane component. It also enhances acetylcholine synthesis and might thus ameliorate symptoms caused by the stroke induced loss of cholinergic neurons. It has ability to reduce free fatty acid accumulation at the site of injury and thus prevent further damage. It reduces and limits the injuries to the membranes of the nerve cells, reestablishes the sensitivity and the functions of the regulatory intracellular enzymes and accelerates the reabsorption of cerebral edema. This supports the use of Citicoline in increasing, maintaining and repairing the membranes and neuronal function in situations eg. ischemia and traumatic injuries. In patients with senile dementia, Citicoline reduces the evolution of damages.
