Only been on it 2 weeks. As long as I take it with a full glass of water and sit up at least 30 minutes after taking, no headache or nausea. I hope this will work cause I have had 4 TIA in the last two weeks (and two strokes, one last year, one five years ago).

I had headaches when I first started taking this 2 times a day,so Dr.recommended trying 1 a day for a week,then take the 2 a day after that and it has been no problem since,which is a little over 2 months now. The cost of them is high,but so is the health issue that it prevents.

I have been taking Aggrenox for three weeks. The first 7 days I had headaches after taking the morning capsule. Two days they were like migraine. After that, no headaches. I took Tylonol for the headaches.

Had a stoke Sept. 2008 Took 2 caps a day for 5 months. Suffered headaches, fast heart beat, very painful sensitive skin, sever stomach acid, and athritic pain in both wrist, neck and left knee. Never had pain before. Stopped taking medication and most cleared up immediately except for right knee. Had cortizone which made it worse. Was on a walker for several weeks. Had a series of shots in my knee for 3 weeks. Am now waiting to see how the shots work or I will need to have knee replacement surgery. I had never had a problem with my knee before. I will never take this medication again. Wish I had never started it. I take asprin now and Doctors have said that it is just as good. I personally think the medication can be one of the worst things I have ever taken.

Severe headaches from this drug

Comment from: hadad0104, 25-34 on Treatment for less than 1 month Published: May 10

My father had a TIA in 2004 and was prescribed aggrenox. He had migrain headaches and severe nausea for the first 3 weeks. He then developed bloody stools and severe stomache pain. Once taken off the drug the by the ER Resident the symptoms diminished. He's left with mild nausea and diverticulitis as a result of this. This drug was too strong and his doctor ignored his symptoms.

Comment from: wildbillcodine, 45-54 Female on Treatment for 6 months - 1 year (Patient) Published: September 29

This drug is highly effective. At first however, it has some pronounced side effects mostly headache. This makes sense because the idea is to dilate arteries which induces a two week long migraine headache. The side effects are transitory and in some respects prove out the medication's effectiveness. When having some dental work the dentist noticed pronounced bleeding. This is also a sign the drug is effective. Presently I have no side effects from this medication and feel that it has positive benefits.

Have been on Aggrenox for 3 years after having 2 TIA's. Haven't had a TIA since. First 2 weeks of treatment was hell.....headaches and nausea. After 2 weeks...no more side affects. Suggest anyone trying this drug to give it a chance. Results are worth the adjustment period.
