Drug + Stroke = “Side Effect”. Brain Blood Clot = “Stroke”

An old lady comes to the Doctor. She has partial facial paralysis and exhibits unusual movements of her face and tongue. The Doctor diagnoses a blood clot in the brain – a stroke – and refers her for rehab treatment.

Next patient !

A patient on “Treatment X” (a psych drug) walks into the Doctors office. She exhibits partial facial paralysis and unsual movements of the tongue and face. The Doctor diagnoses “side effects” and reduces the dosage and considers swapping to another “Treatment X” drug with sundrie “side effects”.

Duh.

How dumb is this ?
