IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
AGGRENOX is contraindicated in patients with known allergy to nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and in patients with the syndrome of asthma, rhinitis, and nasal polyps. AGGRENOX is contraindicated in patients with hypersensitivity to any of its ingredients.
AGGRENOX increases the risk of bleeding. Co-administration with anticoagulants, antiplatelets, or NSAIDs can increase risk of bleeding. AGGRENOX should be avoided in patients with peptic ulcer disease or those having coagulation abnormalities. Patients who consume three or more alcoholic drinks daily should be counseled about the risk of increased bleeding.
AGGRENOX should be avoided during pregnancy due to the potential risk to the fetus. AGGRENOX should be avoided in patients with severe hepatic or renal insufficiency. Decreased renal function can occur with co-administration with NSAIDs.
The most frequently reported adverse reactions (>10% and greater than placebo) were headache, dyspepsia, abdominal pain, nausea, and diarrhea.
