Answer

Discharge medications may include specific agents for stroke prevention (eg, aspirin, clopidogrel, warfarin) that usually are recommended by the neurologist prior to transfer to a neurorehabilitation setting. Cholesterol-lowering drugs, antihypertensive therapies, muscle relaxants, and substances for treating rare thalamic pain or chronic headaches or depression may be prescribed.
