|Uses:||The uses of Nimodip include:|
Nimodip is manufactured by USV, India.
Nimodipine is used to decrease problems due to a certain type of bleeding in the brain (subarachnoid hemorrhage, SAH).
Nimodipine is called a calcium channel blocker. The body's natural response to bleeding is for the blood to form a clot and for the bleeding blood vessel to constrict to slow blood flow. Stopping blood flow to the brain, however, causes more brain damage. Nimodipine is thought to work by relaxing constricted blood vessels in the brain near the area of bleeding so blood can flow more easily. The brain damage is then lessened.
