Interactions between your selected drugs and food

dipyridamole ↔ food
Applies to: Aggrenox (aspirin/dipyridamole)
ADJUST DOSING INTERVAL: Caffeine and other xanthine derivatives (e.g., theophylline) are nonspecific, competitive antagonists of adenosine receptors. As such, they may interfere with the vasodilating effect of dipyridamole, an adenosine receptor agonist. In studies of healthy volunteers, caffeine has been shown to reduce the hemodynamic response (i.e., heart rate increases, vasodilation, blood pressure changes) to dipyridamole infusions, and both caffeine and theophylline have been reported to cause false-negative results in myocardial scintigraphy tests using dipyridamole.

MANAGEMENT: Patients should avoid consumption of caffeine-containing products for at least 24 hours prior to administration of dipyridamole for myocardial perfusion imaging.,1756-2541
