In brief: Often inappropriatly
Agitation in a stroke pt may have many causes ranging in some uncommunicable physical discomfort to structural problems related to stroke damage.
Very often medications are requested as primary intervention when in reality checking for simplemeasures such as repositioning , oain etc should be first searched for.
