I am on aggronex since I had a mini stroke april2011. Now I come to find out that they discontinued the program. i cannot affored to pay for it. is there anything i can replace it with.

The website for the manufacturer of  Aggrenox (Boehringer Ingelheim)which is still has information on the program which is good through 2014.
If you are looking for an inexpensive replacement, Plavix (clopidogrel)is available in generic form now. You should ask your doctor if this would be all right for you to take in place of Aggrenox. Hope this helps, Mary
