Stopping medications for a period of time and then starting again.

Q: I had skipped my BP prescription for a week. I am on Persantin 200mg twice daily. I restarted my intake 4 days ago but have been experiencing spells of severe headaches. What could be wrong?

A: Call your doctor. Headaches while on this medicine can be serious. Persantin is a drug that helps prevent blood clots. I do not consider this medicine a blood pressure lowering medication. I suspect your doctor is treating a different problem. You need to get a better explanation of your healthcare needs from your doctor. It is never smart to stop medicine without consulting your doctor. For more information about this drug go to this page at the U.S. National Library of Medicine site.
