Description

What is Nimotop? 

Nimodipine is the active ingredient of Nimotop; it is a calcium channel blocker that prevents calcium from entering the cells of the heart and arteries to avert contraction to relax and open vessels. 

Nimotop Uses 

This medication is prescribed to reduce brain damage caused by vasospasm or subarachnoid hemorrhage after a ruptured brain aneurysm. An aneurysm is when the artery wall is weakened, and an abnormally large bulge is present; this bulge can rupture and lead to internal bleeding. The bleeding will irritate the brain, causing the vessels to go in spasm and narrow, leading to a limited blood flow, putting the brain at an increased risk of stroke. This medication works in this condition by relaxing the blood vessels in the brain, allowing the blood to flow easily in the damaged area. 

Nimotop Dose 

This medication is prescribed based on the patient’s medical condition, other medicines, and treatment response. Nimotop comes in different forms, such as Nimotop tablet in 30mg. The usual dose prescribed is 60mg as a two Nimotop 30 mg tablet every four hours taken not less than one hour before or two hours after a meal with a total of twelve tablets or capsules per day or 360mg. Swallow the tablets whole, not crushed, chewed, or cut; do not lay down for at least 10 minutes to ensure that the tablet goes down from the esophagus to your stomach. If the patient is unconscious or cannot swallow, the capsule can be pierced and extracted via syringe and administered orally, not intravenously.  

Regular use at the same time of the day every day will help attain the most benefit of this medicine; if a dose is missed, take it as soon as remembered unless it is almost the time of your following intake, then let it be missed for double dosing is discouraged.
