Persantine is a prescription medicine utilized in conjunction with other drugs to mitigate the likelihood of blood clots following heart valve replacement. 

As an antiplatelet medication, Persantine aids in maintaining smooth blood flow by preventing platelets from sticking together and by keeping the heart’s blood vessels open. 

Uses and Dosage 

Before taking Persantine and with each prescription refill, carefully review its medication guide and patient information leaflet. Ask your healthcare provider if you have any questions or uncertainties. 

The dosage of Persantine is determined based on the patient’s medical condition and response to the treatment. 

Typically, Persantine is taken four times daily, as prescribed by the doctor. 

For optimal results, take this medication exactly as directed at a consistent time each day. Refrain from altering the dosage, frequency, or duration of intake without your doctor’s approval. 

Keep taking Persantine, even if you are feeling well. Refrain from discontinuing its use without consulting your doctor.

Persantine can disrupt specific medical or laboratory examinations, including chemical stress tests employing adenosine or dipyridamole, leading to potentially inaccurate test outcomes. Inform laboratory personnel and all treating physicians about your use of this medication. 

Persantine has the potential to induce dizziness, which can be exacerbated by the consumption of alcohol or marijuana (cannabis). Limit the intake of alcoholic beverages, discuss with your doctor your use of marijuana, and refrain from driving, operating machinery, or engaging in activities requiring alertness until you can do so safely.  

Persantine should only be utilized when necessary during pregnancy. Consult your doctor to evaluate this medication’s potential risks and benefits before use.
