Question by A: Can a stroke medication be given without first doing a CT scan or MRI?
Don’t give the answer “just ask your doctor” – the reason why this question is being posed is because I’m in a third world country will poor health care access.
My aunt got a stroke. Not real severe, droopy face and some larygitis but overall she seems okay. They never gave her a CT scan or MRI, just gave her blood thinning medication.
We’ve been trying to get the MRI or CT scan for months, this happened about 6-8 months ago.
Can the blood thinning medication CAUSE a second stroke or make things worse?

Not advisable – even doctors do not prescribe without knowing reason
