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).
