Thanks for using Healthcaremagic. Strocit plus contains a combination of neuroprotective drugs for people with stroke. No difference in outcome between using and not using it. There is no harm if you use it even for 6 months. Take care. Bye

StroCit or citicoline is used by some doctors for early recovery of stroke. However the results from many trials are mixed and benefit of the same is questionable.... In light of present evidence it is not an absolutely essential drug . In brief, u can give it but don't expect much benefit ....
