I came home from the hospital on aggrenox and was very sick. I first thought it was due to the mini stroke that I had. I found ebvery time I took this medicatiopn I was nauseated, dizzy , ringing in my ears and had diarrhea from too much stomach acid the drug caused. The doctor stopped the drug and placed me on Plavix. I do not recommend this drug to anyone. If your sick, figure out if the drug caused it or your condition as soon as you can. In the long run this drug is dangerous.

I suffered a TIA four years ago, and was put on Plavix. I had another TIA about a year later, so my Neurologist switched me to Aggrenox. I have had complete success wtih this drug so far (two and a half years), no side effects, no additional TIA's.

In December of 2005 I had at least 10 tia's over a five day period. I was hospitalized for a week. Aggrenox was prescribed for me. It took almost a week to start working. There were no side effects. I was discharged after the aggrenox started to work and three years later have had no tia's or side effects. Need to take two capsules a day. The only problem is the price, now at $195 for a months supply. But if it keeps you alive it is well worth it!!

I have been having problems with my blood sugars running in the 400-500 range ....and I am hoping that the medication is giving me false readings....anyone else had this problem?
