Nootropic agent, which is widely used to treat patients with craniocerebral trauma of varying severity.
Indications of the cerepro
It is prescribed for the complex therapy of strokes, both hemorrhagic and ischemic, which occur with a marked lesion of the brain.
It is a necessary preparation for patients with circulatory insufficiency in the brain. Used to treat senile pseudomelanchia and various cognitive disorders.
Cerepro is a cholinomimetic of central action, it contains about 40.5% of metabolically protected choline. Due to this, this substance has its effect precisely in the brain. When the drug enters the patient's body, it begins to interact with the enzymes, and then breaks down into glycerophosphate and pure choline. Choline takes part in the biological synthesis of acetylcholine, and glycerophosphate normalizes the phospholipid structures that are located in the neuronal membrane.
Thanks to this remedy, phosphatidylcholine and acetylcholine are synthesized in the body, which help improve blood flow and strengthen metabolic processes in the central nervous system, and increases the linear blood flow on the side of the brain that was affected. In patients, the behavioral response is improved, and the space-time characteristics are normalized. The drug effectively improves the basic functions of the brain.
Dosing and administration
In the acute period of the stroke, the dosage is as follows: 1 g of the drug (only a solution that is administered intravenously or intramuscularly) once every 24 hours for 10 days to 2 weeks. Next, you need to transfer the patient to take capsules (1.2 grams): two capsules in the morning and one capsule in the daytime. This course lasts about six months.
If the condition is chronic, you must take one capsule of the drug three times in 24 hours. The therapy lasts from 3 months to 6 months.
Capsules are best taken before meals.
