What is a generic medication?
Generic medications are significantly discounted copies of brand name medication that have the same active ingredients, intended use, dosage, side effects, effects, and route of administration as the original brand name medication. In other words, generic medications have the same pharmacological effects as their brand-name counterparts. Over half of all prescribed medications are for generic medications.

Aggrenox is used to reduce the risk of stroke in patients who have had "mini-strokes" (transient ischemic attacks) or a previous stroke due to a blood clot and are at high risk for another stroke.a very low dose of aspirin (25 milligrams per tablet) and dipyridamole in a slow-release form. Low-dose aspirin and dipyridamole are antiplatelet drugs that work to keep blood flowing to the brain by stopping platelets from clumping together. This helps prevent the platelets from forming blood clots, which can lodge in the brain and cause a certain type of stroke (ischemic stroke).
How to Use Aggrenox
Read the Patient Information Leaflet if available from your pharmacist before you start taking Aggrenox and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist. Take Aggrenox 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 of the drug at once, increasing the risk of side effects. Take Aggrenox with a full glass of water (8 ounces or 240 milliliters) unless your doctor directs you otherwise. The Dosage of Aggrenox is based on your medical condition and response to treatment. If you have certain side effects (such as severe headache) when you first start taking Aggrenox, your doctor may temporarily change your dose. Carefully follow your doctor's directions. Use Aggrenox regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, take it at the same times 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.
Before taking Aggrenox, tell your doctor if you are allergic to dipyridamole; or to aspirin; or to other salicylates (such as choline salicylate); or to NSAIDs (such as ibuprofen, naproxen); or if you have any other allergies.

Aggrenox may make you dizzy. Alcohol or marijuana (cannabis) can make you more dizzy. Do not drive, use machinery, or do anything that needs alertness until you can do it safely.

Before having surgery, tell your doctor or dentist about all the products you use (including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and herbal products). Your doctor may instruct you to stop aspirin/dipyridamole 10 days before surgery. Do not stop taking Aggrenox without first talking with the doctor who prescribed it.
