Why is this medication prescribed?

Dipyridamole is combined with other medications to lower the risk of blood clots following the replacement of a heart valve. It functions by limiting overly rapid blood coagulation.

How should this medicine be used?

Dipyridamole is available as an oral tablet. Typically, it is taken four times a day. Ask your doctor or chemist to explain any instructions on your prescription label that you are unsure about following. Take dipyridamole as prescribed by your doctor. Never take it in larger or less amounts or more frequently than directed by your doctor.

Dipyridamole should be taken even if you are feeling OK. Without consulting your doctor, do not discontinue taking dipyridamole.

Other uses for this medicine

Aspirin and dipyridamole are also combined to lower the chance of dying following a heart attack and to lower the risk of having another heart attack. Discuss the potential dangers of using this medicine for your illness with your doctor.

Ask your doctor or chemist for more details if you’re interested in using this medication for any other conditions.

What special precautions should I follow?

Before taking dipyridamole,

  • If you have an allergy to dipyridamole or any other medication, tell your doctor and chemist right away.
  • Inform your doctor and chemist about all of the medications you use, notably aspirin and vitamins, both prescription and over-the-counter.
  • If your blood pressure is low or has ever been low, let your doctor know.
  • Inform your doctor if you are expecting, intend to get pregnant, or are nursing a baby. Call your doctor if you become pregnant while taking dipyridamole.
  • If you are 65 years of age or older, discuss the advantages and disadvantages of taking dipyridamole with your doctor. Dipyridamole is typically not recommended for usage in older adults since it is less reliable and less efficient than alternative drugs that can be used to treat the same disease.
  • Inform your doctor or dentist that you are taking dipyridamole if you are having surgery, including dental surgery.

What should I do if I forget a dose?

If you miss a dosage, take it as soon as you recall. If the next dose is soon due, skip the missed one and carry on with your regular dosing plan. To make up for a missing dose, do not take a second one.

What side effects can this medication cause?

Dipyridamole could have negative effects. If any of these symptoms are severe or do not go away, let your doctor know right once:

  • Dizziness
  • Abdominal pain
  • Headache
  • Rash
  • Diarrhea
  • Vomiting
  • Flushing (feeling of warmth)
  • Itching

Certain adverse effects can be very harmful. Call your doctor right away if you have any of the following symptoms:

  • Uncommon bruising or bleeding
  • Eyes or skin that have a yellow tint
  • Chest ache

You or your doctor can submit a report to the Food and Drug Administration’s (FDA) MedWatch Adverse Event Reporting programme online or by phone if you have a serious side event (1-800-332-1088).

What should I know about storage and disposal of this medication?

Keep this medication tightly closed in the original container and out of the reach of children. Keep it away from excessive heat and moisture at room temperature (not in the bathroom).

Although many containers (such as weekly pill minders and those for eye drops, creams, patches, and inhalers) are not child-resistant and are simple for young children to open, it is crucial to keep all medications out of sight and out of reach of children. Always lock safety caps and promptly stash medication up and away from young children where it is out of their sight and reach to prevent poisoning.

Unused prescriptions must be disposed of carefully to prevent pets, kids, and other people from ingesting them. You should not, however, dispose of this medication in the toilet. Instead, utilising a medicine take-back programme is the easiest approach to get rid of your medication. To find out about take-back programmes in your area, speak with your chemist or the garbage/recycling agency in your city. If you do not have access to a take-back programme, see the FDA’s Safe Disposal of Medications website at for additional information.

In case of emergency/overdose

Call the poison control hotline at 1-800-222-1222 in the event of an overdose. Moreover, information can be found online at Call 911 right once if the person has collapsed, experienced a seizure, is having difficulty breathing, or cannot be roused.

What other information should I know?

Keep all of your appointments with your physician and the lab.

No one else should take your medication. Any queries you may have regarding prescription refills should be directed to your chemist.

You should keep a written record of every medication you take, including any over-the-counter (OTC) items, prescription drugs, and dietary supplements like vitamins and minerals. This list should be brought with you whenever you see a doctor or are admitted to the hospital. You should always have this information with you in case of emergencies.
