Aspirin is in a group of drugs called salicylates (sa-LIS-il-ates). It works by reducing substances in the body that cause pain, fever, and inflammation.

Dipyridamole keeps platelets in your blood from sticking together to form clots.

Aspirin and dipyridamole is a combination medicine used to reduce the risk of stroke in people who have had blood clots or a “mini-stroke” (also called a transient ischemic attack or TIA).
