Aggrenox is a brand-name prescription medication that contains a combination of aspirin and dipyridamole.

Aggrenox is used to reduce the risk of stroke in patients who have had a previous stroke or transient ischemic attack (TIA).

Aspirin works by preventing blood clots, while dipyridamole helps to prevent platelets in the blood from sticking together.

Use and Dosage

Read the Patient Information Leaflet if available from your pharmacist before you start taking this product and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

Take this medication by mouth with or without food as directed by your doctor, usually twice daily (morning and evening). Swallow the capsule whole. Do not crush or chew the capsules. Doing so can release all the drugs at once, increasing the risk of side effects.

Take this medication with a full glass of water (8 ounces or 240 millilitres) unless your doctor directs you otherwise.

The dosage is based on your medical condition and response to treatment. If you have certain side effects (such as severe headaches) when you first start taking this medication, your doctor may temporarily change your dose.

Carefully follow your doctor’s directions. Use this medication regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, take it at the same time each day.

Do not try to replace this combination medication with aspirin and dipyridamole taken separately. You would not be able to get the right dose and slow-release dosage form, so the separate medications would not work as well as this combination medication. Consult your pharmacist for more information.
