Has seizures that will not stop w/o intervention. Er & ICU each time he has one. Aprox ever 3 month or aftera fall on head, Memory loss & confusion increase after the seizure due to seizure activity or ? meds used. Seems to lose more memory each time. Balance is poor, loss of taste since on the meds. the more meds he takes the more symptoms. Posture also worse the more he takes. If he does not take the meds he will have more seizures. No anti seizure drugs have been w/o side effects.

My finger joints on one hand have lost much strength and bendable mobility on my left hand. Is it because of the xarelto drug that I take for the stroke I had 9 months ago. I am 56 years old and have been on 20mg of xarelto for 6 months.
From this study (4 months ago):
Taking citalopram and doxazosin after a stroke
