stroke
My mom was 83 years old and her blood pressure was going up to 220 in the a.m. They did not know why it was going so high. Her doctor thought she was on to many pills and was trying to cut some of them. So he took her off of Pradaxa and told her to take baby aspirin instead. A week later she has a stroke. Her blood pressure was 260 when we got to the hospital. A week later she died. I blame her doctor. Am I wrong?
