FAQs

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

Citistar 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 Citistar?

There are no studies to determine the effect of alcohol on treatment with Citistar. However, since Citistar 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 Citistar to improve memory and learning?

No, students should not take Citistar since studies show that Citistar 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 Citistar in stroke?

In cases of stroke caused due to blood clots, taking Citistar orally can help the patient recover completely within 3 months. Also, giving Citistar 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.
