Sensations VS speech: Aphasia is the inability to process language. The impairment can be in inability to talk, to understand, to name objects, to write, to read, to repeat, or to do all these tasks.

The phenobarbital sounds right for a starting dose, however it is a good idea to measure the level in the blood and make sure it is therapeutic. ...Read more

Please get them checked out. ...Read more
