What can I do if I took a medication prescribed by my doctor for a few weeks and it may have caused me to have a stroke?

Question Details: The warning label said it should not be taken by someone who has high blood pressure or other health risk factors, both of which I have and are known to my doctor. I noticed this and that it raised my blood pressure considerably; I told the nurse. She told me to keep taking it. I saw the doctor because of my concerns. They finally took me off it. It also has a side affect of stroke. I had a stroke 3 months later. They never found a reason for the stroke. I am only 47. Do I have any kind of claim?
