Abstract

Co-prescribed aspirin and dipyridamole are more effective than aspirin alone following cerebral infarction; however, patients may struggle with this more complex regimen. The objectives of this study were: (1) to describe postdischarge prescribing of antiplatelet regimens, (2) to measure patient persistence with different antiplatelet regimens, and (3) to measure whether persistence impacts on outcomes.
