Dipyridamole is employed in conjunction with anticoagulants like warfarin to mitigate the formation of clots subsequent to heart valve replacement procedures. The occurrence of clots presents a significant and potentially grave complication, capable of triggering strokes, heart attacks, or the obstruction of pulmonary blood vessels leading to pulmonary embolisms. Functioning as an antiplatelet agent, dipyridamole facilitates the uninterrupted flow of blood by inhibiting platelet aggregation and ensuring the patency of cardiac blood vessels.

Uses and Dosage

Dipyridamole is administered in tablet form for oral consumption. The usual regimen involves taking it four times daily.

Strict adherence to the prescribed directions is imperative; do not exceed or decrease the dosage, nor should you alter the frequency of administration, beyond what has been prescribed by your physician.

Even if you experience an improvement in your condition, maintain the dipyridamole schedule. Ceasing the medication should only be done after consulting your doctor; refrain from discontinuing dipyridamole independently.

Side Effects

Some side effects may occur that usually do not need medical attention:

  • dizziness
  • stomach pain
  • headache
  • rash
  • diarrhea
  • vomiting
  • flushing (feeling of warmth)
  • itching

Inform your healthcare provider immediately if you experience any serious side effects:
