    1 month after taking Aggrenox, my 92 year old father fainted and the ER determined he was severely anemic due to a gastrointestinal bleed. He received a blood transfusion and his Hgb increased from 7.3 to 10.4. We immediately discontinued Aggrenox and after 2 months, his Hgb rose to over 12.

    My father experienced a brain embolism on a Tuesday night. Took him to ER and they prescribed Aggrenox and within 1 week he had a major cerebral bleed and died. Not a good drug!!

    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.
