The purpose of the trial is to determine if extended-release dipyridamole + aspirin \[Aggrenox, Asasa ntin\] is superior to clopidogrel \[Plavix\], and if telmisartan \[Micardis, Gliosartan, Kinzal, Kinzalm ono, Predxal, Pritor, Samertan, Telmisartan\] is superior to placebo, in the presence of background antihypertensive therapy, in prevention of a second stroke in patients who have recently suffered a stroke and therefore are at high risk of suffering another one.
