A traumatic brain injury (TBI) is one of the most serious types of injury that can result from a Los Angeles car accident. A new study concludes that amantadine, a drug used to treat Parkinson’s patients, may speed up the recovery process.

The benefits of amantadine

Amantadine is a drug that increases brain levels of dopamine, which is a neurotransmitter linked to arousal. For TBI victims, the drug may help car accident victims:
  • Who are currently in a vegetative state
  • With their ability to communicate quicker
  • With their responsiveness to treatment

What the author has to say

“There are clear benefits to getting patients from point A to point B faster and relieving some of those initial deficits more quickly,” said Joseph Giacino of Boston’s Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital. “If you talk to a patient’s family, you’ll know what it means for them to be able to communicate sooner.”
