About Dracit Injection

Dracit Injection belongs to a group of medications called 'psychostimulants' used to treat disturbances of consciousness resulting from head injuries, brain operation and acute stage of cerebral infarction (stroke) in adults.

Dracit Injection contains 'Citicoline', which stabilizes cell membranes by increasing phosphatidylcholine and sphingomyelin synthesis and by inhibiting the release of free fatty acids; thereby, it enhances recovery in patients who had their consciousness disturbed by a head injury or any other brain-related problem and who underwent surgery.

In some cases, Dracit Injection may cause injection site reactions, rash, insomnia (inability to sleep), nausea, feeling of warmth, anorexia (loss of appetite), convulsions, transient diplopia (double vision) and dyspnea (shortness of breath). If these side effects persist or worsen, consult your doctor immediately. 

Dracit Injection is not recommended to be used in patients with over-functioning of the sympathetic nervous system or who have a history of hypersensitivity to Citicoline. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, please inform your doctor so that your doctor will weigh the benefits and any potential risks before prescribing it to you. Dracit Injection may cause irregular body movement and double vision; thus, avoid operating machinery or driving after taking this medicine.

Disease/Condition Glossary

Acute cerebral infarction (stroke): Stroke, also called cerebrovascular (CVA) stroke, occurs when there is a decreased blood supply to the brain due to the presence of a blood clot or leakage of blood vessels. The decrease in blood supply leads to a decrease in oxygen and nutrients resulting in the death of brain cells. This condition leads to paralysis of the face, arm, or leg, slurred speech, headache, and difficulty walking.

Head trauma: A head injury (head trauma) is any type of injury to the brain, skull, or scalp. This might range from a minor bump or bruise to a severe brain injury. Concussions, skull fractures, and scalp injuries are examples of common head injuries. The effects and therapies vary widely depending on what caused the head trauma and its severity.
