Talking With Your Doctor
Your doctor can help you create a treatment plan, which may include taking a medication like AGGRENOX
Once you've had a TIA (transient ischemic attack or "mini-stroke") or stroke due to a blood clot, you have an increased risk of a future stroke. So it's vital to work with your doctor to manage your stroke risk factors.
Finding out how to manage your risk starts when you talk openly with your doctor. Be sure to discuss any health issues, questions, or concerns you may have. The treatment plan you create with your doctor should address a wide range of risk factors. Your plan may include diet, exercise, blood pressure, cholesterol, and other conditions you may have, such as diabetes or heart disease.
Your doctor may also prescribe AGGRENOX to help reduce your risk of a future stroke. AGGRENOX works to make small cells called platelets in the blood less sticky. This makes it less likely that those platelets will clump together and form a clot that can block blood flow to the brain—the cause of 87% of strokes.
