How do I use this medicine?

Citicoline may be given intravenously (into the vein) via drip or injection, or by intramuscular (into the muscle) injection.

Your doctor or nurse will administer this medicine for you.

What should I do if I have forgotten to use this medicine?

Ensure that you keep all appointments with your doctor so that you do not miss any doses. Your doctor also needs to regularly monitor your response to Citicoline.

If you miss an appointment or miss an injection, alert your doctor or nurse. A replacement appointment or injection should be given as soon as possible.
