A person who has been taking a combination of high blood pressure medication and diabetes medication for 2 years will suffer temporary partial facial droop in the morning. The lower lip will droop. This is induced directly by the medication.
Temporary partial facial drooping induced directly by medication may or may not indicate a permanent stroke. Temporary facial drooping can be caused by micro-strokes or mini-strokes, due to a high blood pressure attack and a diabetic attack. In these types of strokes brought on by such attacks, there is no CVA, i.e., cerebrovascular accident.
