Prasugrel Hcl

Drug Info for prasugrel hcl

Prasugrel is used along with aspirin to prevent serious or life-threatening problems with the heart and blood vessels in people who have had a heart attack or severe chest pain and have been treated with angioplasty (procedure to open the blood vessels that supply blood to the heart). Prasugrel is in a class of medications called anti-platelet medications. It works by preventing platelets (a type of blood cell) from collecting and forming clots that may cause a heart attack or stroke.

Effient is a medication used to prevent blood clots for those undergoing angioplasty (heart procedure). This drug is used in combination with aspirin. Effient belongs to a class of drugs called platelet inhibitors. Effient is a brand version of the drug prasugrel HCL. This drug was approved by the US FDA in 2009. In the prevention of blood clots associated with angioplasty, Effient use is common.
