Description and Brand Names | Before Using | Side Effects

  • Diagnostic aid adjunct, ischemic heart disease

Dipyridamole (dye-peer-ID-a-mole) is used as part of a medical test that shows how well blood is flowing to your heart. The test can show your doctor whether any of the blood vessels that bring blood to the heart are blocked or in danger of becoming blocked. Your doctor can then decide on the best treatment for you. Exercise (for example, walking on a treadmill) is usually used to give your doctor this information. Dipyridamole is used instead of exercise for people who are not able to exercise at all, or cannot exercise hard enough.

The dose of dipyridamole that is used to test how well blood is flowing to your heart will be different for different patients and depends on your body weight.
