 1  Stroke Within 2 hours of taking first dose, severe vomiting and migraine, bp went up to 260/130, hospitalised, symptoms lasted 48 hours, now 3rd day post dose and feel very heavy in the arms and unable to walk properly. I will never take this again, it is more likely to give me a stroke than prevent one. F 65 1 days

 4  Pulmonary embolism while on coumade Only improvements. The worst side effects were the family doc-tors who failed to research before writing a prescription and were afraid to give SUFFICIENT dosage. Also, family doctors blocking a referral to a specialist, where I ultimately got the required dosage increase. It is very cruel to expect a sick person to take a pill every 6 hours! When does the body rest? Taking it every 8 hours is much better. Also, since your literature says up to 400 mg. daily, why are most doctors unwilling to prescribe more than 200 mg. daily. This is a wonder drug that seems to be being saved for the chosen few. I believe it has many more applications than even it's maker is making known. Guess we stop the money machine rolling if we cure too much at once, right? F 56 4000 days

PERSANTINE  (DIPYRIDAMOLE):  This medication is used in combination with "blood thinners" such as warfarin to keep clots from forming after heart valve replacements. Clots are a serious complication that can cause strokes, heart attacks, or blocked blood vessels in the lungs (pulmonary embolisms). Dipyridamole is an antiplatelet drug. It helps to keep blood flowing by stopping platelets from clumping together and by keeping heart blood vessels open.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
