The drug is vital in the management of stroke and has been used for the treatment of post-stroke patients around the world.

Somazina is indicated to improve cognitive function in patients who have suffered from stroke or cerebral infarction, or who have undergone a brain surgery or have suffered from head injuries.

The brand, Citicoline is widely used as a neuro-protectant to help accelerate the recovery from stroke. It is used in both ischemic and haemorrhagic strokes, and provides a compelling option to physicians treating stroke patients.

"Citicoline is safe to use and may have a beneficial effect in stroke patients. Citicoline is the only drug, that in a number of different clinical stroke trials, has had some neuroprotective effect." shared Dr. Atul Prasad, Director & Sr. Consultant, BLK Super specialty hospital, Delhi.

Cerebral Stroke is the third leading cause of deaths in India, as per the Global Burden of Disease Study 2013. "Stroke is a major cause of disability and death in India. There is a pressing need for novel neuroprotective agents which can salvage brain tissue and optimize the functional outcome," said Subhash Kaul, renowned senior neurologist from NIMS, Hyderabad.
