Thank you for posting your query.

It is unfortunate that your grandmother suffered from repeated brain strokes.

Strocit plus (combination of citicoline and piracetam) is a safe medicine, routinely prescribed in brain strokes. However, its efficacy is maximum within the first three months. So, even though the current symptoms (swelling of face and throat) may be unrelated to strocit plus, it can be stopped now.

I hope it helps.

Please get back if you require any additional information.

Best wishes,
