Decongestant use may increase risk of stroke, Univ. of Penn. pilot study concludes.

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

OTC DECONGESTANT USE MAY INCREASE STROKE RISK, University of Pennsylvania researchers concluded in a pilot study presented at the American Academy of Neurology's recent annual meeting in Boston. Eric Raps, MD, et al. said "the paucity of established risk factors for stroke, the relative youth of the patients...and the fact that they were all using decongestants at the time of stroke suggest that these medications may precipitate stroke in individuals with a vasoreactive profile."
