Emergency Plan

Developing an emergency plan is very important, be prepared and plan today.  Written emergency plans should include brief but specific information about the person’s medical condition, including physical and mental state.  Make sure the written emergency plan is placed in a secure safe place and is easily accessible.  Examples: in the car's glove compartment and/or trunk, by your phone, etc.

Avoid Thrombolytics & Anticoagulant Treatments which aim at unblocking blood vessels as they increase the risk of a cerebral hemorrhage. 
Vasoconstricting Medicines (issued from rye ergot or from Triptan) may increase the risk of cerebral infarction. 
Cerebral conventional angiographies (contrast agent within the arteries in the brain for examination of the cerebral vasculature) should be avoided because of potential neurological complications (migraine with extended and severe aura) 
Using Anesthesia must be monitored as it could cause abrupt changes in blood pressure.
