Aggrenox reviews

I have been on aggrenox for about eight months. I have a lot of muscle and joint pain and suffer from chronic fatigue. (thigh/ hip/ pelvic) I am wondering if anyone else has experienced these symtoms? ## I have severe neck and back/sholder pain with the 50 mg pill and the dr.s act like i am stupid as if they have never heard of this. I do have fibromyalgia and thought that might have some to do with it. Can you get anyone to listen? ## I was put on aggrenox following a TIA and shortly afterward suffered a severe headache that radiated down my neck and across my shoulders. I stopped taking it and am now on plavix which is much better. However, even 2 days after last taking aggrenox, I still suffer from neck and shoulder pain, particularly when under even minor stress. ## My Dad starting ...

I beleive the aspirin in it causes bleeding. cant take plavix, so dont know whatTheir going to put me on, hsve muscle and joint problems too. ## What do you take it for? Specifically to prevent stroke, or just as a blood thinner?

I do not want to be on a blood thinner, had my 4th infusion yesterday and got 5 more to go!

AGGRENOX MEDICATION

IS IT SAFE TO GO OFF THIS MEDICATION FOR 4 DAYS PRIOR TO AN OUTPATIENT SURGICAL PROCEDURE AS REQUESTED BY MY SURGEON ? (REMOVAL OF A SMALL FACIAL SKIN CANCER ). ## Have you also discussed it with your regular doctor? Since Aggrenox contains the active ingredients Aspirin and Dipyridamole, it can increase the risk of bleeding and surgical complications, so it is very common for surgeon to want someone to stop taking such medications, for a few days, before surgery.
