Hello again.

Most of these ingredients are nutrients and supportive and are very well tolerated. There are a couple of drugs with potential side effects that are worth noting, though.

The Zadaxin is a drug that is generally very well tolerated. It can rarely cause local reactions, such as pain or redness. It also can cause diffuse muscle aches, arthritis, or hand swelling.

The Vasorel is also generally very well tolerated, but there are rare reports of causing certain movement disorders, such as Parkinson’s-like symptoms, restless legs syndrome, or an abnormal gait.

If I can provide any clarification, please let me know.

There are no definite studies that show that these nutrients and medicines are helpful, but the use of these have been used by some doctors for supportive care of people with a stroke.
