Stroke researchers at UC San Diego have led the country in several studies designed to identify medications that are most successful in preventing strokes and TIAs. Some drugs alter the ability of the blood to clot by preventing platelets from aggregating.
Aspirin is the most common example, but two other agents, Clopidogrel and Ticlopidine have also been proven to prevent stroke.
Coumadin or warfarin is a different type of agent that alters the ability of the blood to clot by interfering with certain proteins in the bloodstream. Recently, this agent was found to give the same protection against stroke as aspirin, but only for certain types of stroke. This is another reason to have a stroke prevention analysis completed if you have risk factors for stroke.
