A Bucks County car accident can lead to a variety of injuries, including a traumatic brain injury (TBI). A new study suggests that amantadine may speed the recovery process for those who have sustained a TBI.
Amantadine is a drug that is primarily used to treat people who are suffering from Parkinson’s disease. The drug increases brain levels of dopamine, which is a neurotransmitter linked to arousal.
A new study conducted by Boston’s Spaulding Rehabilitation Hospital’s Joseph Giacino found that amantadine may help TBI victims. Giacino believes that amantadine may help:
- Victims who are in a vegetative state
- Improve responsiveness
- Victims’ ability to communicate sooner
