Researchers had high hopes for a recent brain injury study. The study looked at the effect of citicoline on brain injury victims. Citicoline is widely used in other countries to treat traumatic brain injuries and strokes. Researchers were hopeful that evidence would support the effectiveness of citicoline and that the substance would be approved to treat brain injury victims in the United States.
Unfortunately, that is not what the study found according to the study results published in the November issue of the Journal of the American Medical Association. Instead, the study found that citicoline had no effect on treating brain injuries.
Getting the Medical Help You Need After a Missouri Car Accident Brain Injury
There is, unfortunately, no drug or treatment that cures all traumatic brain injuries. The brain is complex. Medication and rehabilitation therapies may help with a recovery, but they may not provide a cure. In order to make the maximum possible recovery, it is important to:
- See a doctor as soon as possible after your car accident.
- Follow your doctor’s orders.
- Take care of yourself and prevent further injury.
Additionally, it is important to come to terms with any limitations or long term injuries that may be difficult, if not impossible, to reverse.
