Comment:
Since taking Aggrenox, I have experienced a extreme loss of appetite, with a constant sour stomach, bad taste in my mouth with a constant coating on my tongue. Weight loss. Have made an appointment to see what other alternatives are available, as I just can not tolerate this side effect any longer.

Comment:
had 2 strokes in 2002 carotid artery 100% blocked. Have been taking Aggrenox for 12 yrs only problem was after 5 yrs stomach problems, went on omeprazole, now it's ok, only concern is now I need knee replacement surgery and no orthopedic surgeons know anything about this drug or how long I can stop taking it for safety. Does anyone know the answer?

Comment:
I had a mini-stroke (TSA) in 1990 and in 2008 another TSA. My doctor put me on Aggrenox in 2008 and going on 6 years taking this medication, I have had No TSA's and no side effects at all. Very satisfied with Aggrenox.
