  1. Tylenol
  2. Aspirin
  3. Apples and Grapefruit
  4. Gin and Tonic

Answer: #2

According to research from the University of Oxford:
“Our findings confirm the effectiveness of urgent treatment after TIA and minor stroke – and show that aspirin is the most important component.”
“Encouraging people to take aspirin if they think they may have had a TIA or minor stroke – experiencing sudden-onset unfamiliar neurological symptoms – could help to address this situation, particularly if urgent medical help is unavailable.”
“… aspirin reduced the early risk of a fatal or disabling stroke by about 70-80% over the first few days and weeks. ”
