Asasantine Lp side effects

- Under dipyridamole, are reported: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, dizziness, headache, rash. These effects disappear in most cases when continuing treatment.
. Because of its vasodilator properties, dipyridamole can also induce hypotension, hot flushes and tachycardia, or even rarely worsening of coronary symptoms.
. Very rare cases of myalgia have been reported in patients treated with dipyridamole.
Dipyridamole can be incorporated into gallstones.
. Hypersensitivity reactions such as rash, urticaria, and angioedema have been reported.
. Dipyridamole can cause bronchospasm.
. Isolated cases of thrombocytopenia have been reported in association with dipyridamole therapy.
- Under aspirin, are described:
. effects on the central nervous system : tinnitus, sensation of decreased hearing, headaches that are usually the mark of overdose (especially in the elderly);
. gastrointestinal effects : gastric ulcers, overt gastrointestinal bleeding (hematemesis, melaena ...) or occult, responsible for iron deficiency anemia.
These side effects occur more frequently with higher doses, but may also occur with low doses;
. haematological effects : haemorrhagic syndromes (epistaxis, gingivorragies, purpura ...) with increased bleeding time. This action persists a few days after stopping aspirin. It can create a haemorrhagic risk in case of surgery;
. hypersensitivity reaction : sensitization accidents (urticaria, asthma, angioedema, anaphylactic accident);
. others : abdominal pain.
