ASPIRIN-DIPYRIDAMOLE ER Lifestyle Interactions

Aspirin 25mg, Dipyridamole 200mg, Oral capsule, extended release

Caffeine-containing Foods/Beverages

· Severity: Major

· Notes for Consumers: Caffeine may decrease the actions of Dipyridamole when it is used during heart testing. Discuss your Caffeine intake (including intake of coffee, colas, teas, or herbal supplements) with your health care provider prior to any procedures or examinations involving heart function. However, when Dipyridamole is used on a regular basis to prevent blood clots and strokes, an interaction with Caffeine is not expected.

· Notes for Professionals: Methylxanthines, through antagonism of adenosine and thus pharmacologic-induced coronary vasodilation, have been associated with false-negative results during dipyridamole-thallium 201 stress testing. It is recommended that caffeine be discontinued for at least 24 hours prior to stress testing. An interaction is not expected when methylxanthines are used concomitantly with the chronic dipyridamole therapy.

Aspirin 25mg, Dipyridamole 200mg, Oral capsule, extended release

Alcohol

· Severity: Major

· Notes for Consumers: Side effects from this drug may get worse if you drink alcohol-containing drinks. If you have persistent stomach upset, vomit blood or what looks like coffee grounds, or have black, tarry stools, contact your health care provider immediately. Avoid alcohol containing drinks while taking aspirin. Alcohol intake should be limited even with short term use of aspirin or related pain relievers.

· Notes for Professionals: Concomitant ingestion of ethanol with salicylates, especially aspirin, ASA, increases the risk of developing gastric irritation and GI mucosal bleeding. Ethanol and salicylates are mucosal irritants and aspirin decreases platelet aggregation. Routine ingestion of ethanol and aspirin can cause significant GI bleeding, which may or may not be overt. Even occasional concomitant use of salicylates and ethanol should be avoided. Chronic alcoholism is often associated with hypoprothrombinemia and this condition increases the risk of salicylate-induced bleeding. Patients should be warned regarding the potential for increased risk of GI bleeding if alcohol-containing beverages are taken concurrently with salicylates.
