Dipyridamole

Dipyridamole No Prescription

Dipyridamole is prescribed to patients who have recently undergone heart valve replacement, in order to prevent blood clots from appearing on or around the artificial valve.
Dipyridamole has proven its high effectiveness in keeping the patient's blood platelets from clotting (coagulating), in order to make sure that no blood clots will appear around or on an artificial heart valve.

Dipyridamole helps reduce the formation of blood clots in people who have had heart valve surgery. It is prescribed in combination with blood thinners such as Coumadin.

Some doctors also prescribe Dipyridamole in combination with other drugs, such as aspirin, to reduce the damage from a heart attack and prevent a recurrence, to treat angina, and to prevent complications during heart bypass surgery.

Active Ingredients:

  • Dipyridamole

Dipyridamole Therapeutic actions:

Dipyridamole is a type of medicine known as an antiplatelet. It prevents blood cells called platelets from clumping together inside the blood vessels, and is sometimes referred to as a 'blood thinner'. It also dilates the blood vessels. It works by blocking the action of an enzyme found in platelets called phosphodiesterase. Inside the platelets phosphodiesterase normally breaks down a chemical called cyclic AMP. Cyclic AMP plays a key role in blood clotting. If the level of cyclic AMP in the platelets is high this prevents the platelets from clumping together. Dipyridamole causes the levels of cyclic AMP in the platelets to rise, because it stops phosphodiesterase from breaking it down. This means that Dipyridamole stops the platelets from clumping together and causing a blood clot.
