Cereflo Injection

Prescription Required

Overview

Introduction

Cereflo Injection is a prescription medicine used in the treatment of Alzheimer's disease, stroke and memory loss in Parkinson's disease. It can also be used to treat age related memory loss and head injury. It works by improving communication between the nerve cells and protects the brain.

Cereflo Injection is administered as an injection under the supervision of a healthcare professional and should not be self administered. It is given in cases where oral administration is not possible. Take this medicine in the dose and duration as advised by your doctor and if you have missed a dose, take it as soon as you remember.

Some common side effects of this medicine include nervousness and abnormality of voluntary movements. You may also notice some injection site reactions such as pain, redness or swelling. However, these are temporary and usually subside on their own after some time. Please consult your doctor if these do not subside or bother you. It may also cause dizziness and sleepiness, so do not drive or do anything that requires mental focus.

This medicine may cause weight gain, therefore, you should have a balanced diet and exercise regularly. Taking Cereflo Injection can affect platelet aggregation, so inform the doctor if you have bleeding problems or if you are on medications that help to make the blood thin.

Dr. Jyoti Kapoor Madan
Psychiatry
At the age of 27year and no history of head injury, memory problems are more often related to stress and anxiety. A psychiatric evaluation may be useful.
My father is suffering from Parkinson's disease for last 10 years now he has lost his memory power and even don't know what to do and not to do even though urinated on his bed etc Pl advice treatment for him
Dr. Jyoti Kapoor Madan
Psychiatry
Parkinsonism is Disorder of motor activity characterised by slowness of movement and stiffness. Memory loss is a consequence of dementia. Both can occur together. Dementia involves damage of nerve cells in the brain, which can occur in several areas of the brain. Dementia affects people differently, depending on the area of the brain affected. Most types of dementia can't be cured, but there are ways to manage the behavioural symptoms. A neurological and psychiatric evaluation is required to make a rehabilitation plan for such patients.
