Knowing you have an increased risk of a subsequent stroke can be scary. But, by working with your doctor to develop an appropriate treatment plan, you can help reduce your risk. For some, this treatment plan may include AGGRENOX.
AGGRENOX is a prescription medicine that's FDA approved to lower the risk of stroke in people who have had either a TIA (transient ischemic attack or "mini-stroke") or stroke due to a blood clot.
AGGRENOX works by making platelets in the blood less sticky. That means they're less likely to clump together and form blood clots that can block blood flow to the brain—the cause of 87% of strokes.
AGGRENOX is proven to be effective
By combining 2 antiplatelet agents—aspirin and extended-release dipyridamole—AGGRENOX works better than either medicine alone to reduce the risk of a subsequent stroke.
In a clinical study, AGGRENOX helped reduce the risk of stroke in patients who had a TIA or stroke due to a blood clot:
- Over 90% of patients on AGGRENOX remained stroke-free for 2 years (1493 patients out of a total of 1650).
- Patients taking AGGRENOX twice daily were 22% less likely to have a stroke than patients taking low-dose aspirin (25 mg twice daily) alone.
- AGGRENOX was twice as effective as low-dose aspirin (25 mg twice daily) at reducing the risk of a subsequent stroke when tested against a sugar pill.
