Citicoline is a mononucleotide composed of ribose, cytosine, pyrophosphate and choline. Citicoline is considered a pleiotropic drug that activates neuronal metabolism, stabilizes neuronal membranes, and facilitates neurotransmission.

Citicoline is the precursor of phosphatidylcholine, which contributes to the synthesis of structural phospholipids in the plasma membrane of cells, and acetylcholine is an important neurotransmitter in cell metabolism.

Citicoline is available as the free base citicoline (a dietary supplement) and Citicoline Sodium; the latter is used primarily as a drug for neurological disorders.

Citicoline forms part of cell membranes and is essential in neurotransmission, a compound necessary for the body to function properly. But citicoline is almost absolutely dependent on exogenous dietary sources.

Citicoline has been used for amblyopia, nearsightedness, and restoration of corneal sensitivity after laser-assisted in situ keratomileusis (LASIK). Experimental studies have shown that taking citicoline appears to play a positive role in controlling the progression of many retinal diseases such as DR and glaucoma and improving visual function.


There are many studies showing the benefits of citicoline in humans, with glaucoma being the pathology for which the most evidence is found for citicoline. The multiple mechanisms of action of citicoline improve the integrity of neuronal membranes, reduce oxidative stress and improve the synthesis of neurotransmitters such as acetylcholine. These applications could explain the diverse neurotherapeutic effects of citicoline in glaucoma and neurodegenerative diseases in general.

Citicoline is currently available as an intramuscular injection, an oral formulation, and a topical solution in the form of eye drops. Citicoline has been extensively studied experimentally in a variety of conditions and pathologies, with improvements in visual function in patients with glaucoma, DR, non-arteritic ischemic optic neuropathy (NAION) and amblyopia.
