Therapy For Patients With Cerebral Blood Vessel Blockage?
I want to ask if there is a drug like clopidogrel that has less side effects, because my mother just got a disease due to blockage of blood vessels to the brain, actually her body can be moved but still can’t walk and sit, is it because of the side effects of the drug? doctor prescribes flunarizine, clopidogrel, atorvastatin, Citiholne
Thanks for the question. Diseases caused by blockage of blood vessels in the brain are also known as strokes. Stroke can happen to anyone, both men and women. Symptoms that appear in each patient vary depending on which brain blood vessels are affected because each brain blood vessel drains blood in a different area of the brain. Blockage of blood vessels in certain areas of the brain causes brain function to be disrupted, causing symptoms. The following are some of the symptoms of a stroke:
a face that looks asymmetrical or decreases in one hand, weakness in one arm or leg speaking becomes slurred or unclear, difficulty swallowing, headaches, decreased consciousness, impaired body coordination, visual disturbances.
After being diagnosed with a stroke, patients are generally given drugs to thin the blood (prevent blood clots), antihypertensive drugs, statins, and other drugs to treat the patient's symptoms.
Please advise your mother to take the treatment suggested by the doctor. Do not forget to also check yourself regularly according to the schedule recommended by the doctor. You can consult a physiotherapist to help your mother undergo physical therapy to strengthen the weak body parts so that your mother can slowly restore the function of her body movements.
Hope this information is useful.
