Use of amphetamine in the treatment of aphasia.

The effects of d-amphetamine on the recovery of aphasia following stroke was examined in 6 patients. Patients entered the study between 10 and 30 days post onset and were followed for 3 months. The Porch Index of Communicative Ability was used to project a 6 month recovery score. By 3 months post onset, 5 of the 6 patients obtained scores in excess of 100% of the 6 month projections.
