Sufferers of traumatic brain injury (TBI) may soon be getting more relief. According to the published results of recent scientific research, a drug that is used to treat both dementia and Alzheimer’s disease may also be useful for TBI patients as well. The drug, called memantine, is reported to help their recovery process, as measured through the Glasgow Coma Scale and neuronal damage markers in the blood. This may really help patients who have recently had a traumatic injury to their head which has resulted in significant neurological damage.
