Deans' stroke musings

Changing stroke rehab and research worldwide now.Time is Brain!Just think of all the trillions and trillions of neurons that DIE each day because there are NO effective hyperacute therapies besides tPA(only 12% effective). I have 493 posts on hyperacute therapy, enough for researchers to spend decades proving them out. These are my personal ideas and blog on stroke rehabilitation and stroke research. Do not attempt any of these without checking with your medical provider. Unless you join me in agitating, when you need these therapies they won't be there.

What this blog is for:

Shortly after getting out of the hospital and getting NO information on the process or protocols of stroke rehabilitation and recovery I started searching on the internet and found that no other survivor received useful information. This is an attempt to cover all stroke rehabilitation information that should be readily available to survivors so they can talk with informed knowledge to their medical staff. It's quite disgusting that this information is not available from every stroke association and doctors group.
My back ground story is here:

15 Rx Meds With Some of the Most Dangerous Side Effects

Some of these might be in your health prescriptions, be careful out there. Ambien and Lunesta seemed to be the sleeping aids of choice at the hospital I was at.

1. Yaz

Most people who are on Yaz experience less severe side effects like headaches, nausea, and irritability, but blood clots can be life-threatening.

12. Levaquin or Cipro

According to an FDA safety review, researchers found these antibiotics can greatly affect the tendons, muscles, joints, nerves, and central nervous system

13. Brilinta

For some, though, this medication can cause severe bleeding that can even be fatal. 

15. Ambien

It’s also possible the medication’s effects can carry into your day, causing severe drowsiness and impairment in your thinking and reactions. Could this have been part of the reason I could fall asleep in 5 minutes during the day while at the hospital? And the fogginess of my thinking?
