Cerebrolysin is a hydrolysate of a porcine brain which is used as a nootropic drug.

Cerebrolysin was discovered in 1949 in Austria and is used in medical practice since 1954. The drug has a broad range of indications including ischemic stroke, Alzheimer’s, Parkinson’s, dementia, traumatic brain injury, and ADHD in children.

The chemical composition of Cerebrolysin is pretty complex and consists of various neuropeptides, amino acids, and neurotrophic factors. One of the most important advantages of Cerebrolysin is its high tolerability in patients, as it rarely causes any side effects, high efficacy, and a wide spectrum of therapeutic action.

The official indications for use are:

  • Chronic cerebrovascular insufficiency
  • Ischemic stroke
  • Alzheimer’s disease
  • Dementia
  • Traumatic injuries of brain and spinal cord
  • Developmental delays in children
  • Attention deficit hyperactivity disorder in children
  • Antidepressant resistant depression

Dosage and administration

Doses below 5ml should be administered via intramuscular injection; higher doses should be taken via slow intravenous infusion.

Dosage and the treatment duration depend on the patient’s condition. The drug can be administered one-time only in the dosage of up to 50ml; however, a continuous course is more preferable. Recommended treatment course is daily injections for 10-20 days.

  • The dosage for acute conditions (ischemic stroke, TBI, neurosurgical complications) is 10-50ml.
  • Residual stage of stroke, traumatic brain injuries, and spinal cord injuries: 5-50ml.
  • Organic brain syndrome and depression: 5-30ml.
  • Alzheimer’s disease and vascular dementia: 5-30ml.
  • Pediatrics: 0.1-0.2ml per kg of body weight.

The course can be repeated for higher efficacy. After the first course, Cerebrolysin may be administered only 2-3 times a week.

Side effects

  • Side effects on gastrointestinal tract: loss of appetite, indigestion, diarrhea, constipation, nausea.
  • Central nervous system: agitation, insomnia.
  • Immune system: allergic reactions.
  • Reaction on administration: injecting the drug too fast may cause sweating, vertigo, and tachycardia.
  • Local Reactions: erythema, itching.
  • Other: arterial hypertonia, arterial hypotonia, fatigue, tremor, depression, apathy, common cold symptoms.

It should be noted that in clinical trials of Cerebrolysin, patients who received placebo also experienced adverse effects (agitation, arterial hypertonia, arterial hypotonia, fatigue, tremor, depression, apathy, headaches, dyspnea, diarrhea, and nausea) with the same frequency as Cerebrolysin group.

    The product I received was the same one in the picture. The product was manufactured in 2017, and doesn't expire until around 2020. It was also all sealed and packaged properly, including the holographic seals. By all standards, this is the real deal, freshly produced. Not some back room stuff, you'd get this kind in a pharmacy. If you're reading this review, I'm sure you've already done some research on Cerebrolysin (check out the Thought Emporium's video on it). I'm on the 11th day of a 5 x 2ml, 20 x 5 ml, 5 x 2ml course, and can attest my tolerance to caffeine has totally been reset, and I have felt no depression whatsoever. It lives up to the limited hype surrounding it. Additionally, in writing and creativity, and especially in conversations, I notice myself being on top of my game and on point. Now, this stuff isn't a wonder drug, it hasn't given me super powers (yet), but for the price (you won't find a better one than Amphx) and even the effects alone, I'd rate 11 out of 10. If you're thinking about buying, if it were me, I'd go ahead. I don't think I need a disclaimer, but this isn't medical advice, etc.
