About Somazina 500 mg Tablet 10's

Somazina 500 mg Tablet 10's 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.

Somazina 500 mg Tablet 10's 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.

You may experience some side effects such as gastrointestinal disturbances, including nausea, constipation or diarrhoea, abdominal pain, headache, blurred vision, insomnia (trouble sleeping), hypotension (decrease in blood pressure), increased or decreased 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 the Somazina 500 mg Tablet 10's, let your doctor know about all your allergic or hypersensitivity reactions to medicines or food. Inform your doctor if you are suffering from kidney, liver, or heart disease. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, please tell your doctor so that your doctor will weigh the benefits and any potential risks before prescribing it to you. Keep your doctor informed about your health condition and all the medicines you are taking before taking Somazina 500 mg Tablet 10's to rule out any side effects.

Uses of Somazina 500 mg Tablet 10's

Stroke, head injury, Alzheimer’s disease, Parkinson's disease, and glaucoma

Medicinal Benefits

Somazina 500 mg Tablet 10's 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).

Patients Concern

Disease/Condition Glossary

Stroke: Stroke, also called cerebrovascular (CV) 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: Brain dysfunction due to trauma or injury to the head.

Alzheimer’s disease: Alzheimer's disease is a progressive and irreversible brain disorder that occurs due to degeneration or death of brain cells. The characteristic symptom of this disease is dementia, in which patients experience a decline in thinking, behaviour, and social skills.

Parkinson’s disease: Parkinson’s disease is a progressive brain disorder that occurs due to decreased dopamine levels (a hormone responsible for motor function or movements) in the brain. The symptoms include tremors, impaired balance, difficulty speaking, decreased movement, and change in writing.

Glaucoma: Glaucoma occurs due to damage to the optic nerve, which is responsible for vision. Abnormal high pressure in the eye causes damage to the optic nerve. This condition may progress to blindness if left untreated.

FAQs

Somazina 500 mg Tablet 10's contains citicoline which is a precursor for phospholipids (forms the outer layer of nerve cells).
