User Feedback


FAQs

Q. I have been prescribed Citimac for Alzheimer’s disease. What is its role, and how does it work?

Citimac is a form of an essential nutrient called choline which is naturally present in the body. It protects the nerve cells in the brain from damage and also helps to repair the damaged nerve cells. Therefore, it improves learning, memory and cognitive function (processing information or perception) in Alzheimer’s disease.

Q. Can I take alcohol during treatment with Citimac?

There are no studies to determine the effect of alcohol on treatment with Citimac. However, since Citimac is prescribed for stroke, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, head injury, and age-related memory impairment, it is best to avoid the consumption of alcohol.

Q. Can students take Citimac to improve memory and learning?

No, students should not take Citimac since studies show that Citimac is effective only in age-related memory problems, memory problems associated with long-standing stroke, and in Alzheimer’s disease. Moreover, there is no data available for use of this medicine in children.

Q. What is the role of Citimac in stroke?

In cases of stroke caused due to blood clots, taking Citimac orally can help the patient recover completely within 3 months. Also, giving Citimac either intravenously (injecting the medicine in vein directly) within 12 hours of having stroke or daily for 7 days after the stroke can help the patient recover sooner.
