Nootropil 1200mg is a nootropic medicine that’s known to help enhance cognitive skills such as learning and memory. Because of its effects on the central nervous system, and its potential as a neuroprotective medicine, Nootropil 1200mg may be prescribed to help treat CNS disorders and restore cognitive function in neurodegenerative disease.
How Nootropil Works
Nootropil 1200mg tablets contain 1200mg of the active ingredient Piracetam. Piracteam is a type of Pyrrolidone derived from Gamma Aminobutyric Acid which affects the central nervous system. While the exact interactions between Piracetam and the CNS are not fully understood, scientists believe that Piracetam can enhance the actions of two neurotransmitters in the brain: glutamate and acetylcholine.
Acetylcholine especially has multiple responsibilities, including contracting and smoothing the muscles, dilating blood vessels, and steadying the heart rate. Because of this, Piracetam may sometimes be used to prevent unintended movements, and ease feelings of stress and anxiety, especially in patients with neurodegenerative diseases.
Nootropil 1200mg is often used to treat:
- Cortical Myoclonus
- Mild cognitive impairment
- Neurodegenerative diseases including stroke
- Stress and anxiety in patients with neurodegenerative disease
The dosage for Nootropil 1200mg is often determined by the weight of the patient, with the recommended daily dose ranging from 30mg/kg to 160mg/kg. The medicine can be taken with or without food. As the active ingredient, Piracetam, can have quite a bitter taste in the mouth, it is best to swallow the tablets whole with a full glass of water.
