Ceham Syrup 60 ml belongs to a group of medications called ‘psychostimulants’ used to treat stroke, head trauma or injury, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and glaucoma. A stroke occurs due to insufficient blood supply to the brain.
Alzheimer’s disease is a progressive age-related memory loss. Parkinson’s disease is a progressive brain disorder that affects movement. Glaucoma is an eye problem that occurs due to damage to the optic nerve, responsible for vision.
Ceham Syrup 60 ml contains ‘Citicoline’, a psychostimulant or nootropic used to nourish and minimize damage to the nerve cells in various conditions associated with the brain.
It increases the activity of the central nervous system (brain and spinal cord). It regenerates nerve cells by promoting the synthesis of phospholipids (forms neuronal membrane) in the brain.
It improves learning, memory, judging, and thinking processes. It can improve recovery in patients with disturbance in consciousness in patients with head injury or any other problems associated with the brain and who underwent surgery.
Ceham Syrup 60 ml is available in the form of a tablet or injection. The tablet form is swallowed as a whole; do not crush, chew, or break the tablet. A healthcare professional will administer the injection; do not self-administer.
You may experience some side effects such as gastrointestinal disturbances, including nausea, constipation or diarrhea, abdominal pain, headache, blurred vision, insomnia (trouble sleeping), hypotension (decrease in blood pressure), increase or decrease in heart rate, and restlessness.
Most of these side effects do not require medical attention. However, if the symptoms persist or get worsen, consult a doctor immediately.
Before taking Ceham Syrup 60 ml, inform your doctor if you have any known allergy to citicoline or any other ingredients present in it.
Inform your doctor if you are taking any prescription or non-prescription drugs, nutritional supplements, or herbal products. Inform your doctor if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
Uses of Ceham Syrup 60 ml
Stroke, head injury, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and glaucoma
Ceham Syrup 60 ml contains ‘Citicoline,’ which belongs to the class of ‘psychostimulants.’ It is used to promote brain health. It is used to treat stroke, head injury, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson’s disease, and glaucoma. It protects the brain from neurotoxicity (damage to the brain).
It acts as a precursor for phospholipids (present in the outer membrane of the nerve cell) and also stimulates phospholipid synthesis in the brain. It also stimulates blood flow and oxygen consumption in the brain.
This promotes brain activity and improves cognition, memory, and thinking capabilities in patients with progressive brain disorders. It accelerates the recovery rate in patients with neurological diseases (diseases affecting the brain).
