Persantine Modified Release Description

If you are scheduled for a heart valve replacement surgery, your doctor may recommend a prescription for Persantine Modified Release. These capsules contain Dipyridamole, an antiplatelet medication that is prescribed to prevent platelets in your blood from clumping together inside the blood vessels and is often prescribed with aspirin or other blood thinners.

Here is How Persantine Modified Release Works

When taken as directed, Persantine Modified Release works by blocking the action of an enzyme found in platelets called phosphodiesterase that normally breaks down cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP). Through this process, platelets (one of the constituents that are needed to make your blood clot) are unable to clump together in your blood vessels and cannot form a clot. Dipyridamole also dilates the blood vessels to help blood flow.

Conditions Treated by Persantine Modified Release

If you are found to have one or more of your heart valves damaged or severely narrowed due to congenital defects, infections, build-up of cholesterol, or cancers, your doctor or specialist will explain the procedure for replacing the valve(s) and you’ll be prescribed a blood thinner and an antiplatelet drug such as Persantine Modified Release.

You have four vital valves in your heart that regulate the timing, pressure, and direction of the blood flow. Most heart valve surgeries involve the mitral or aortic valve. The aortic valve carries blood from your heart when it contracts, and the mitral valve brings blood back into your heart and expands. Any change to this rhythm could put you at risk for a heart attack.

A stroke is a condition that occurs due to a problem with the blood supply to the brain. One of the causes for the disruption of blood supply may be a blood clot. Persantine Modified Release may be prescribed for people who have already had a stroke or a mini-stroke (transient ischemic attack), or a heart attack to prevent blood clots that could cause further health risks.

Before You Take Persantine Modified Release

Before taking Persantine Modified Release, it is important to inform your doctor of other medical conditions you have and list all OTC and Rx drugs you take or use, including vitamin and herbal supplements. These conditions may affect your ability to safely take Persantine Modified Release or your meds could affect how Dipyridamole will work for you.

Proper Use of Persantine Modified Release

Persantine Modified Release capsules are designed to release Dipyridamole slowly over several hours to provide balanced levels of the drug in the blood. Therefore, the capsules should be swallowed whole and not chewed or crushed in order to maintain this balance. Keep all meds out of children’s reach and never share them with anyone.
