In acute and critical situations, Citicoline should be administered in conjunction with anti-hemorrhagic and drug or treatment for reducing intracranial pressure and keep body temperature low.
If intracranial bleeding still occurs, avoid giving Citicoline with high doses (more than 500 mg at a time), because it can accelerate blood flow in the brain. In this case, a small dose is needed (100 mg-200 mg, 2-3 times daily).
