Brief Answer:
Stroke is rarely a complication of Stroke.

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXX,
Thanks for being on healthcaremagic.com.
I am Dr.Ajay Panwar,a neurologist, here to answer your query.

Although, stroke has been rarely reported as a side effect of stroke, and that way can be used by you. However, it is not prescribed to patients with cardiovascular risk, because of its side effect profile.

So, I would say that there is no time restriction to start in your case, if you want to, however if possible you may avoid it.

Hope that helps.If you have any further questions,I shall be glad to have you in follow-up.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for being in follow-up.

I mean if you need it, you can use it now as well. However, if you are the one, who is concerned about the minimal chances of side effects, avoid it.

Bottom line, if you think it is mandatory, use it.

Hope that helps.If you have any further questions,I shall be glad to have you in follow-up.
