Sun Pharma Laboratories Ltd
Strocit 500 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.

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.
