My mother had a TIA a few years ago..and they placed her on this medicine. She is suppose to stop taking it right before a colonoscopy she is having done on the 21st of December. She is afraid to quit this drug because her blockage is up near her ear which is almost 100 percent blockage...like 99% and is inoperable. She has read that quitting this drug quickly and for the 5 days it recommends before have the procedure done can be deadly. Any info would be greatly appreciated. She wanted to hear opinions on should she even have the procedure done...or are the risk too high? Answered by Hayley Trzaska 2 years ago.
Aggrenox is made up of two meds-- aspirin and dipyridamole. It is the aspirin that is the problem, and usually it is recommended to stop aspirin 5 days before surgery to reduce bleeding risk. Aspirin affects platelets, which is part of the clotting process. I don't see why she couldn't get a 5-day dose of dipyridamole (Persantine). There is nothing about this drug that increases her risk of bleeding during surgery because of its mechanism of action. I have not seen information that stopping this medication for 5 days is deadly. The doctor simply has to weigh the pros and cons of possibility of another stroke, and possibility of bleeding issues. She should get a colonoscopy if she is over 50, has a history of colon cancer or polyps (herself or her parents/siblings), or it has been more than ten years since the last clean exam.

Does aggrenox cause heart palpations?
I have been taking aggrenox for about a month now and for the last 2 days I have been having heart palpations can it be caused from the aggrenox?
Asked by Marcos Paraz 2 years ago.
It is not a known reported side effect of Aggrenox. Medications affect individuals differently though. It is most likely related to something else. If your symptoms continue, notify your doctor. Good luck. Answered by Adrian Bub 2 years ago.
Which is best for strokes: Plavix or Aggrenox?
Wondering which medication is best if I had a stroke: I know some neurologists like Plavix, some like Aggrenox.
Asked by Daryl Sweet 2 years ago.
I've heard that there is evidence for both. It seems to depend who you ask. There is a Plavix camp and an Aggrenox camp. Unfortunately no head-to-head trials that everyone can agree on. Answered by Tamiko Wilcoxson 2 years ago.
Can I take Aggrenox in place of 325mg aspirin?
Asked by Diana Noy 2 years ago.
Only if allergic to aspirin. A doctor would prescribe this change. Be careful, very careful, with Aggrenox. Answered by Stefan Zorens 2 years ago.
by the way Aggrenox is combination of aspirin with Dipyridamole 25/200 mg, and the only one can answer that is your doctor based on the required blood thinning level!! Answered by Joni Simmers 2 years ago.

Odds of second brain stem stroke while taking aggrenox?
Asked by Masako Tasson 2 years ago.
Depends on the cause of the first one. Platelet inhibitors DECREASE the risk of stroke, they do not eliminate it. If there is a severe basilar a. stenosis, it may not help at all. If the origin is an embolus from the heart, the nature of the heart problem determines the risk. e.g.intermittent atrial fibrillation dramatically increases the risk of all strokes, and is managed by anticoagulants if the A. fib cannot be st Answered by Reba Innarelli 2 years ago.

Read everything of the letter who's inside, there should be the name of the firm who sells it, and than you might check it with Google or Wikipedia. I'm not taking these medication, because I'm a lucky one who haven't had a stroke up to now.. Answered by Anjelica Galvez 2 years ago.
