Stroke patients may benefit from antidepressants6th December 2012
Research presented to the UK Stroke Forum has suggested that anti-depressants may help stroke patients recover.
The conclusion came from an analysis of 52 studies involving 4,000 people and showed the drugs could reduce disability as well as depression, though at this stage researchers say they do not understand exactly how the drugs helped the brain recover. The findings have been welcomed by the Stroke Association, which described them as encouraging, but that it was too soon to offer the drugs to patients.
