CEREBROVASCULAR ACCIDENT Symptoms and Causes

A stroke is a medical emergency. There are two types - ischemic and hemorrhagic. Ischemic stroke is the most common type. It is usually caused by a blood clot that blocks or plugs a blood vessel in the brain. This keeps blood from flowing to the brain. Within minutes, brain cells begin to die. Another cause is stenosis, or narrowing of the artery. This can happen because of atherosclerosis, a disease in which plaque builds up inside your arteries. Transient ischemic attacks (TIAs) occur when the blood supply to the brain is interrupted briefly. Having a TIA can mean you are at risk for having a more serious stroke.

Symptoms of stroke are

  • Sudden numbness or weakness of the face, arm or leg (especially on one side of the body)
  • Sudden confusion, trouble speaking or understanding speech
  • Sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes
  • Sudden trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination
  • Sudden severe headache with no known cause

It is important to treat strokes as quickly as possible. Blood thinners may be used to stop a stroke while it is happening by quickly dissolving the blood clot. Post-stroke rehabilitation can help people overcome disabilities caused by stroke damage.

Has anyone had any side effects when taking amoxicillin with Tikosyn?

I have been on Tikosyn (500mg 2X/day) for a month and have experienced similar side effects as Janet in Oklahoma. Specifically weight gain and joint pain and stiffness.

I started Tikosyn 3 days ago. I stayed in hospital as per the instructions regarding usage of this drug. I suffered no side-effects and my correct dosage - 500 mg twice daily in my case - was safely established.

I'm on a regimen of Tikosyn, 25mg twice a day. I came to Europe, decided to stay and extra week which means I'll need more Tikosyn. I had someone ship it to me with all the necessary papers and it's stuck in custom in Frankfurt. So...is the

Since starting Tikosyn, I have experienced muscle pain, stiffness, bradycardia,weight gain, fatigue. Are these symptoms common and how do you combat them.

CEREBROVASCULAR ACCIDENT Clinical Trials and Studies

Treatments might be new drugs or new combinations of drugs, new surgical procedures or devices, or new ways to use existing treatments. The goal of clinical trials is to determine if a new test or treatment works and is safe. Clinical trials can also look at other aspects of care, such as improving the quality of life for people with chronic illnesses. People participate in clinical trials for a variety of reasons. Healthy volunteers say they participate to help others and to contribute to moving science forward. Participants with an illness or disease also participate to help others, but also to possibly receive the newest treatment and to have the additional care and attention from the clinical trial staff.
