Study Reveals New Possible Treatment for TBI Victims with Aggression Issues

Web Admin - Saturday, October 07, 2017

Illinois traumatic brain injury lawyerTraumatic brain injury (TBI) can result in all sorts of long-term complications, including mood swings and personality changes. Sometimes, those changes in demeanor are heartbreaking or sad. Other times, they can be frightening, either to the victim or to the people around them, because of the underlying aggression or rage. 

Much of this can be attributed to the changes that occur within the brain after injury, and it can last for the rest of the victim’s life. Sadly, such issues can cause even further damage to a victim’s life. They may be unable to maintain employment. Relationships may break down. They may even start to suffer from self-esteem and self-hatred issues, which only further perpetuates the cycle of aggression. Thankfully, science believes they may now have a pharmaceutical solution. 

More on the Possibility of Prescriptions 

The drug, which was originally developed in the 1960s, is an antiviral. Researchers developed the theory that it might help TBI victims after considering how it appears to decrease the cognitive issues experienced by Parkinson’s patients. They often take it to prevent certain illnesses and infections to which they are prone. However, it was not until recently that one doctor started treating patients with the medication – and one of them was a colleague. 

The effects of the drug appeared to be immediate, the study author and doctor using the treatment said in her preface to the publication. Even her colleague reported massive improvement. Further research would need to be done to determine if this effect is real or just a placebo, but the possibility of a treatment may give current victims hope. 

Dealing with the Effects of a TBI 

While patients can ask their doctors about the use of the antiviral medication, Amantadine, they may experience resistance. After all, one study is hardly enough to alter the way that traumatic brain injury is treated. Still, it is important for patients to talk to their doctors about issues they are experiencing after a brain injury – especially if they have an active personal injury claim, such as an auto accident claim. Failure to do so could lead to incomplete medical records, which could ultimately reduce a victim’s settlement.
