AGGRENOX is a prescription medication used to lower the risk of stroke in people who have had a "mini-stroke" (transient ischemic attack or TIA) or stroke due to a blood clot.

Talking With Your Doctor

Your doctor can help you create a treatment plan, which may include taking a medication like AGGRENOX

Once you've had a TIA (transient ischemic attack or "mini-stroke") or stroke due to a blood clot, you have an increased risk of a future stroke. So it's vital to work with your doctor to manage your stroke risk factors.

Finding out how to manage your risk starts when you talk openly with your doctor. Be sure to discuss any health issues, questions, or concerns you may have. The treatment plan you create with your doctor should address a wide range of risk factors. Your plan may include diet, exercise, blood pressure, cholesterol, and other conditions you may have, such as diabetes or heart disease.

Your doctor may also prescribe AGGRENOX to help reduce your risk of a future stroke. AGGRENOX works to make small cells called platelets in the blood less sticky. This makes it less likely that those platelets will clump together and form a clot that can block blood flow to the brain—the cause of 87% of strokes.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION

Aggrenox® (aspirin/extended-release dipyridamole) 25 mg/200 mg capsules is a prescription medicine used to lower the risk of stroke in people who have had a "mini-stroke" (transient ischemic attack or TIA) or stroke due to a blood clot.

AGGRENOX should be avoided in patients who are allergic to any ingredient in AGGRENOX, or allergic to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), or who have the combination of asthma, runny nose, and nasal polyps. AGGRENOX should not be given to a child or teenager.

AGGRENOX increases the risk of bleeding, including bleeding into the brain, stomach or intestines. Any bleeding you have may take longer to stop when you are taking AGGRENOX.

AGGRENOX should be avoided by patients with a history of stomach ulcers or those who drink three or more alcoholic drinks a day, as these can increase the risk of bleeding. Patients should tell their doctor about all medicines they are taking, especially blood thinners, heparin, warfarin, NSAIDs, heart medicines, or medicines for high blood pressure, including diuretics ("water pills").

AGGRENOX should be avoided during pregnancy, especially in the third trimester. AGGRENOX should be avoided in patients with severe liver or kidney problems. The most common side effects of AGGRENOX are headache, upset stomach, and diarrhea.

You are encouraged to report negative side effects of prescription drugs to the FDA.
