Citicoline seems to increase a brain chemical called phosphatidylcholine. This brain chemical is important for brain function. Citicoline might also decrease brain tissue damage when the brain is injured. Citicoline is sold in over 70 countries under a variety of brand names: Cebroton, Ceraxon, Cidilin, Citifar, Cognizin, Difosfocin, Hipercol, NeurAxon, Nicholin, Sinkron, Somazina, Synapsine, Startonyl, Trausan, Xerenoos, etc. When taken as a supplement citicoline is hydrolyzed into choline and cytidine in the intestine. Once these cross the blood–brain barrier it is reformed into citicoline by the rate-limiting enzyme in phosphatidylcholine synthesis, CTP-phosphocholine cytidylyltransferase.

Pregnancy and lactation:
There are insufficient data on the use of citicoline in pregnant women. During pregnancy, citicoline is prescribed only in cases where the expected benefit to the mother outweighs the potential risk to the fetus. When using citicoline during lactation, women should decide whether to stop breastfeeding, since there is no evidence of citicoline excretion into breast milk.
