INTRODUCTION

PRAX 10MG contains Prasugrel which belongs to a group of medicines called antiplatelet agents. Platelets are very small cell particles that circulate in the blood. When a blood vessel is damaged, platelets clump together to help form a blood clot. When clots form in a blood vessel such as artery, they cut off the blood supply to the heart resulting in heart attack (myocardial infarction), stroke or death. Therefore it is essential to stop bleeding.

It is indicated to prevent blood clot in patients with acute coronary syndrome. It is also given along with other medications in patients who has been treated with a procedure to open blocked arteries and have had one or more stents placed in the heart to prevent stent clotting. It reduces the chances of having a further heart attack or stroke due to any one of these cardiovascular events.

Take PRAX 10MG according to the dose and frequency as advised by your doctor. Swallow the medicine whole, do not crush or chew. It can be taken with or without food. It is not recommended for children and adolescents under 18 years of age. Before taking, inform your doctor if you have any bleeding condition, severe liver disease, pregnant or breastfeeding. The common side effect is bleeding like bruising, nose bleeds, and blood in urine.
