Side Effects Stop Taking Supplements In Hypertensive Patients?
Hello … I want to ask my mother after I was hospitalized because of symptoms of stroke … There is one drug that is not listed in the recipe for d redeemed citicoline. Can I stop using it? And there are side effects if not stopped? Other drugs that are consumed clopidogrel, amlodipine and ramipril?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, I want to confirm beforehand, what do you mean during treatment at the hospital your mother received citicoline while the drug was not prescribed again for consumption at home?
Basically, citicoline is a supplement that is sometimes given to help with brain recovery after a stroke. The effectiveness of these supplements in helping the recovery of the brain after a stroke is also still questionable, so that routine supplementation is also not recommended. However, because of the negative side effects of this supplement also does not exist, then the gift is only optional (may be given, may or may not). If indeed this supplement is not prescribed anymore, then you may not give this supplement to your mother again. If you still have medicine remaining from the hospital, you may give it to your mother.
Other medicines given by doctors must be consumed regularly. Your mother must also continue to control her neurologist according to the schedule provided and also carry out routine control of internal medicine doctors to control her hypertension. Hypertension is a risk factor for stroke and if not properly controlled it can also cause recurrent strokes. Therefore, antihypertensive drugs must be consumed routinely every day and control to the doctor of internal medicine must also be done to assess and overcome other risk factors that may be owned by your mother.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
