Objective: To study the activity of ozagrel sodium alone and in combination with the atypical antipsychotic drug on Red blood cell distribution width (RDW-CV) along with different doses and their comparison in rats. Method: This experimental study consisted of 120 albino rats of both gender, they were of 310-350 g, there were 10 groups which consists of each of 12 rats (n=12). Rats were treated with an accurate dose of ozagrel and atypical antipsychotic (Zuclopenthixol cis isomer of clopenthixol) alone and in combination for 3-weeks (21 days). We obtained blood sample at 0, 7th, 14th and last day of the study. Red blood distribution widths were measured from blood tests by utilizing standard medical laboratory technique. Red blood cell distribution width (RDW-CV) was measured by using the coefficient of variation indicator. Results were gathered and summarized by applying statistics. The comparison was formed between all days value to zero-day. Results: Minimum dose treated groups by both medications showed an increase and RDW-CV, but maximum dose showed p<0.001 decreases in RDW-CV in individual groups of drugs treatment and in case of RDW-CV maximum dose showed an increasing trend with p<0.001 in the combination groups. Conclusion: Maximum dose of ozagrel may cause a decrease in RDW-CV alone and it may cause an increase in (RDW-CV) with a combination of atypical antipsychotic drug.
