This article reviews randomized control trials (RCTs) published in 2006 of various medications evaluated for stroke patients. These trials were primarily efficacy studies. These included aggrenox (an antiplatelet agent), magnesium (to treat arterial spasm after an aneurysmal subarachnoid hemorrhage), NXY (a free radical trapping agent) and albumin which were both tested as a neuroprotectant, amphetamine (to aid motor recovery), fluoxetine (an anti-depressant and anxiolytic) and low molecular weight heparin (for prevention of deep vein thrombosis post-stroke).
