Generic Aggrenox is developed by medical scientists to relieve pain, fever, and inflammation. Also it keeps platelets in your blood from sticking together to form clots. Generic Aggrenox is also created for people who have had blood clots or a "mini-stroke" (transient ischemic attack or TIA) to protect from possible risk of stroke. Generic Aggrenox consists of aspirin (25 mg) and dipyridamole (200 mg). Aspirin is in a group of drugs called salicylates. Aspirin works by reducing hormones that cause inflammation, fever and pain in the body. Dipyridamole operates by keeping platelets in your blood from sticking together to form clots.

Remember that taking Generic Aggrenox is not the same as taking each of the medications (aspirin and dipyridamole) separately.
