Post Stroke Ataxia Medication


I am the husband of a 61 year old wonderful lady who suffered a stroke 3 years ago, this has left her with severe ataxia whereby she has no mobility, her vision and speech are also affected, at present she is on medication to combat reoccurrence of stroke, it would be great to hear from anyone in a similar situation who has managed to find medications which can help with this condition.

Thanks Vicky, sorry to hear you are suffering this awful condition as well, I don’t use the Facebook thingy, takes me all my time to send emails, I am always on the lookout for news about the condition and if there are any trials being commissioned, whatever I here I will post
