Stopping Medication Without Doctor’s Advice After a Stroke Can Be Fatal

Successful Treatment of a Severe Stroke Patient at GMCH

Geetanjali Medical College and Hospital, Udaipur, is known for providing multidisciplinary treatment approaches to its patients. Recently, a 58-year-old resident of Udaipur was given a new lease on life after a successful treatment at the hospital. The treatment team, supervised by the Head of the Neurology Department, Dr. Nishant Ashwani, included Neurologist Dr. Nishant Ashwani, Resident Dr. Dhruv, ICU doctors Dr. Shubhkaran Sharma, Dr. Sanjay Paliwal, Dr. Syed Javed, and supporting staff.

**Detailed Information:**

Dr. Nishant Ashwani explained that the patient had suffered a stroke two years ago and had subsequently stopped taking his medication. In November 2023, the patient experienced another stroke and was brought to Geetanjali Hospital's emergency department in an unconscious state, complaining of severe headache, dizziness, and vomiting. Given the patient’s critical condition, he was immediately admitted to the ICU. An MRI confirmed the occurrence of a stroke, primarily affecting the posterior part of the brain, which also impaired his vision. After four days, the patient was shifted from the ICU to a regular ward. He is now healthy, leading a normal life, and regularly visiting the hospital for consultations.

It is crucial for stroke or high blood pressure patients to continue their medication without interruption unless advised by a doctor. Regular medication intake can prevent the recurrence of strokes. This patient’s condition became critical because he had stopped taking his medication without consulting a doctor. Special care and attention are essential after a stroke; neglecting it can be fatal.
