Product Description:

General information
Persantine belongs to a class of drugs known as platelet inhibitors (antiplatelets). It helps to keep blood flowing by stopping platelets from clumping together and by keeping heart blood vessels open. It is used to prevent blood clots that may occur after a heart valve replacement. Clots are a serious complication that can cause strokes, heart attacks, or blocked blood vessels in the lungs (pulmonary embolisms). It is also used for certain types of tests for the heart that examine how well blood is flowing through the heart.
Directions
Take Persantine exactly as prescribed by your doctor. The recommended oral adult dose for preventing blood clots is 100 mg 4 times daily one hour before meals. If taken with 1 g ASA daily, the dose of dipyridamole can be reduced to 25 mg 4 times daily. Take it with a full glass of water.
Precautions
Before taking Persantine you should talk with your doctor if you have liver disease, low blood pressure, severe coronary artery disease (atherosclerosis), uncontrolled chest pain (angina), heart attack. It may cause lowering of blood pressure and increase the effect of blood pressure-lowering medications. Do not take aspirin or other non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). This drug may make you dizzy. Do not drive or perform tasks that require alertness. Limit alcoholic beverages.
