How Aggrenox Works
Aggrenox contains two active ingredients - aspirin and dipyridamole. Aspirin belongs to a group of drugs called salicylates which work by reducing pain, fever and inflammation in the body, while dipyridamole prevent platelets in the blood from sticking together and forming clots. Aggrenox’s dosage form is that of 25 mg aspirin and 200 mg dipyridamole, and is used to reduce the risk of stroke in individuals who have had blood clots or who have experienced a ‘mini-stroke’ (transient ischemic attack, or TIA).
Generic Dipyridamole vs Brand Aggrenox
The brand and the generic aggrenox is chemically and therapeutically the same. The only difference is the manufacturer. We currently have the brand from Uk manufactured by Boehringer Ingelheim and the generic from India (Arreno) by Intas Pharma. It may come from other countries around the world.

Please note that the preceding account for some of the most commonly experienced side effects but all medications affect individuals differently, so if you are ever concerned that any medication may be having an adverse effect on your health, contact a medical professional.
Prior to taking Aggrenox, be sure to tell your doctor of all drugs you are currently taking, or if you have any of the following conditions: a bleeding disorder such as hemophilia; liver disease; heart disease, congestive heart failure, or recent heart attack; kidney disease; low blood pressure; asthma; nasal polyps, or a history of allergies to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as Advil or Motrin. Aggrenox should not be taken by a child or teenager, as aspirin can result in a serious (and sometimes fatal) condition known as Reye’s syndrome in individuals within this age group. Take Aggrenox exactly as it has been prescribed to you. Follow exactly the directions on the product label. If you have any questions about this product whatsoever, it is imperative to contact a medical professional immediately.
