Hi,

It would appear from your description of the paralysis and medications that you suffered a stroke in 2012. You've not really said much about how you are currently doing but my guess is that things are stable.

After 7 years from a stroke the paralyzed portions of the body will have reached a stable point of recovery. Medication wise, it would appear that your doctor is covering you for the correct and adequate items that could cause problems in the future such as cholesterol and it also appears he is giving you some type of supplementation for good health of the brain tissue itself.

I might recommend your doctor look into your B12 and Vitamin D levels in the bloodstream. Those 2 things are very important to good nerve health following a stroke. I would talk to the doctor about doing blood work and looking for B12 levels that are no less than 450 and D levels that are 60-80.

Otherwise, the balance of your medication list appears to be quite reasonable and I'd suggest it continue. You may also benefit from some form of personal REHABILITATION EXERCISE therapy depending on how paralyzed the right side may be and if your speech and language have been affected you may be able to benefit from speech therapy as well if you never had any in 2012.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Dariush Saghafi, Neurologist
