Nimotop (active ingredient: nimodipine) is a prescription medication indicated for:

  • Subarachnoid Hemorrhage: Nimotop is used to improve neurological outcomes by reducing the incidence and severity of ischemic deficits in patients with subarachnoid hemorrhage (SAH) from ruptured intracranial berry aneurysms, regardless of their post-ictus neurological condition.

Nimotop belongs to a class of drugs known as calcium channel blockers, which work by inhibiting calcium ions from entering smooth muscle cells and neurons, leading to vasodilation and improved blood flow in the brain, thereby reducing the risk of cerebral vasospasm and associated neurological deficits following subarachnoid hemorrhage.

Uses and Dosage

Nimotopcomes in tablet form and should be used as soon as possible after the onset of bleeding in the brain, typically within 4 days. It should be taken as directed by your doctor, usually every 4 hours, with a full glass of water (8 ounces/240 milliliters), but you should not lie down for at least 10 minutes after taking the tablet.

Nimodipine should start as early as possible or within 96 hours of the diagnosis of subarachnoid hemorrhage. The recommended dose for adults is 60 mg (two 30-mg capsules) every 4 hours for 21 consecutive days.

Do not crush the tablet and avoid consuming grapefruit or grapefruit juice while using this medication, as it may increase the risk of side effects. Always follow your doctor's instructions carefully when taking Nimotop.
