FAQs

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

Ziticolin Injection 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 Ziticolin Injection?

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

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

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