Hello doctor,

My father had a TIA for two hours nearly four months ago where he could not understand what was going around him and had some difficulties with walking. He was released from the hospital after five days. Before this, he had a fever. His CRP level was also 2.328 and he was taking Atorvastatin, Aspirin, Clopidogrel, Vitamin C tablet, sugar and pressure medicines until now. He has also been given a sleep medicine and a tension-relieving medicine. What should be done now?

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

TIA (transient ischemic attack) for more than 60 minutes in a hypertensive and diabetic patient is a very serious sign that could lead to a stroke.

I suggest you control your blood pressure and blood glucose with medications with regular followup.

I suggest you take Clopidogrel 75 mg once per day. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and with their consent take the medicines.

You also need to be familiar with the signs and symptoms of stroke and seek immediate medical advice as some medications need to be given within a few hours.

Please provide me with lab test results you have or a photograph of them in the follow-up query.
