Stroke Recovery
Hello,

what medications are prescribed after stroke? Is cerebrolysin good enough to help the person to recover after stroke? It doesn't seem to be working well, we don't have a way of seeking medical help other than research online, what medications do doctors prescribe to help recover after stroke?
thank you for your help,

Hello and hope you are doing well.

Stroke can be ischemic or hemorrhagic. Ischemic stroke occurs as a result of blockage to an artery. For this therapy with clot dissolving drugs (thrombolytics), should be initiated early. Aspirin, an anti-thrombotic drug, is given immediately after an ischemic stroke to reduce the likelihood of having another stroke. Tissue plasminogen activator (TPA), needs to be given within 4.5 hours after stroke symptoms, this restores the blood supply to the affected part.

Treatment of hemorrhagic stroke focuses on controlling the bleeding and reducing the pressure on the brain. Sometimes surgical interventions may be needed to control the bleeding. Cerebrolysin has beneficial effects on cognitive function.

Depending on the clinical condition, a rehabilitation program is charted out.

Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
