FREE MEDICINE FOR STROKE PATIENTS FROM DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH


The Department of Health announced that the medicine for stroke patients is now available in selected hospitals nationwide and its  free.
Alteplase or tissue plasminogen activator,the medication for stroke which usually costs Php80,000 per vial is a trully life-saving drug that is ideally administered within 3 hours upon onset of fatal stroke,Health Secretary Paulyn Jean B. Rosell-Ubial explained.The DOH procured the said medicine for only Php30,000 and now became available to everyone waiving the excuse of not being treated because they cannot provide the money needed to have access to the pricey stroke medication.

Ubial however reminded doctors must first distinguish the type of stroke the patient has because alteplase will only benefit a patient with ischemic type of stroke as the medicine "breaks down unwanted blood clots."
"Alteplase will just worsen the stroke if given to those with the hemorrhagic type since this will just promote more bleeding in the brain," she added.
