Safety and Side Effects
Know the safety and side effects of AGGRENOX
Some people who take AGGRENOX may experience side effects. The most common side effects of AGGRENOX include headache, upset stomach, and diarrhea. Because AGGRENOX contains aspirin, the risk of bleeding is increased and it may take longer to stop bleeding.
These are not all the possible side effects of AGGRENOX. Tell your healthcare provider or pharmacist if you have any side effect that bothers you or that does not go away.
Know what to do if you experience headaches during treatment
Headaches are not uncommon when you first start taking AGGRENOX—especially within the first month—but often lessen as treatment continues. Tell your healthcare provider if you have a severe or intolerable headache. Your healthcare provider may change the instructions for taking AGGRENOX.
