User Comments:


For Ischemic Stroke, Prophylaxis “I was put on aggrenox to keep from having strokes. I was fine with taking it until about 7 months later it caused me to have another. Before and after my stroke I had excruciating headaches. I took my own self off aggrenox and the headaches disappeared. I would suggest if anyone is taking it to STOP.”

For Ischemic Stroke, Prophylaxis “This medication was used to help prevent a stroke but it actually caused me to have a stroke. I wouldn’t advise anyone to take this medication. Someone else I knew had several strokes before the dr figured out it was the aggrenox. I was on it 8 months before having my stroke.”

For Ischemic Stroke, Prophylaxis “Fourteen years i have been taking Aggrenox. Total life saver for me. Headaches when I first started, took Tylenol if absolutely necessary. ? Generic. Am I going to be forced to take generic? Pretty scary.”

For Ischemic Stroke, Prophylaxis “I’ve had 4 bad Transient Ischemic Attacks. I tried Plavix once but had severe side effects. Just started on Aggrenox. Bad headache, nausea, stomach pain. But I’ll do it and hopefully my body will adapt — soon hopefully.”

For Ischemic Stroke, Prophylaxis “I had a few TIAs after bypass surgery, although the two may not be directly related; that is, the bypass surgery causing the TIAs. More likely it relates to my chemistry. The Drs. had me on Coumadin, which of cource is a real pain. After experiencing a TIA I was admitted and my attending physician was a stroke neurologist. He questioned me being on Coumadin and felt strongly that Aggrenox was the right medicine for my situation. I have used it for at least over 10 years with absolutely no side effects or occurrences.”

For Ischemic Stroke, Prophylaxis “I had a series of TIA’s almost 10 years ago. After Numerous Drs and hospitals I went to the Mayo Clinic. After many tests they diagnosed the problem and prescribed Aggrenox. I had some mild headaches the first few weeks. I have been TIA free for almost a decade.”
