INTRODUCTION

PRAX A 75MG CAPSULE is a combination of Aspirin and Prasugrel which belongs to the group of medicines called Antiplatelet agents. It is used to reduce the risk of blood clot formation in the body.

It is typically used among patients who have undergone percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI, a non-surgical procedure used to open clogged blood vessels supplying the heart) or stent implantation in the heart.

It also prevents the recurrence of heart attack, stroke, angina, atherosclerosis and other circulatory problems caused due to blood clots among patients with heart problems and/or problems in blood circulation.

Before taking PRAX A 75MG CAPSULE inform your doctor if you have any liver, kidney or heart problems. You must also inform your doctor if you have asthma, hay fever, high blood pressure, dehydration, heavy menstrual periods or if you are scheduled for any surgery (including minor dental surgeries) in the upcoming days as a precaution.

PRAX A 75MG CAPSULE is not recommended for use in patients with ulcers or bleeding from the stomach or intestines. It is also not suitable for use in pregnant or breastfeeding women unless recommended by a physician.

PRAX A 75MG CAPSULE may also make you bleed more easily even after minor cuts or injuries, and so be cautious while you perform even minor activities that involve the risk of cuts or injuries (like shaving, playing, or handling sharp objects). The most common side effects of taking PRAX A 75MG CAPSULE are increased bleeding tendency, anaemia, stomach problems and indigestion. Consult your doctor if they trouble you.
