Asa + persantine: neuro docs use it for stroke/TIA patients. Data weak at best-causes headaches and GI upset. Rather use clopidigrel -better data and better tolerated.

Stroke prevntion: Aggrenox is a combination of Aspirin and a drug called dipyridamole. This combo prevents platelets from "clumping" and causing a clot or embolism to prevent strokes. It is a relatively safe drug. Most drug interactions involve other drugs which also prevent platelets from clumping and thus cause bleeding.
