Can you tell me is coffee good for stroke patients?

Neutral: Don't think coffee represents a risk or harmful substance to stroke patients, but unlikely to assist rehab efforts unless there is a speech issue and Ritalin (methylphenidate) is not tolerated, but caffeine really has no role in stroke therapy, good or bad.

By MRI or CAT scan: Mri or cat scans will show if there was a stroke and possibly how old it is. However, the history is more precise regarding the time of the stroke.
