TACKEL contains ticagrelor which belongs to the group of medicines called antiplatelet agents. It is used to reduce the rate of cardiovascular death, myocardial infarction and stroke in patients with acute coronary syndrome (ACS) or a history of myocardial infarction. It also reduces the rate of stent thrombosis in patients who have been stented for treatment of ACS. Ticagrelor stops clumping of blood cells called platelets, which is responsible for clot formation in diseased blood vessels of heart and brain and thus reduces the chances of a blood clot formation. It can be taken with or without food.

The most common side effect of taking this medicine are bleeding and bruising. Avoid concomitant use of ticagrelor and other oral anticoagulants like heparin or warfarin, as it may increase the risk of side effects. Do not take this medicine if you are suffering from any bleeding disorders or liver problems. This medicine is not recommended for use in pregnant or breastfeeding women and in children aged below 18 years.


  • Prevents cardiovascular death, myocardial infarction and stroke in patients with ACS or myocardial infarction


Ticagrelor is a potent P2Y12 receptor antagonist. In diseased blood vessels, platelets can form thrombus (blood clot) by binding to the arterial surface. Activated platelets produces ADP3 which binds to P2Y12 receptor and propagates thrombus formation. Ticagrelor reversibly binds to P2Y12 receptor instead of ADP3 and prevents the signal transduction and platelet activation, that can lead to blood clot formation.


Take this medicine as directed by your physician. It can be taken with or without food. Your doctor will decide the correct dose for you depending upon your condition. Swallow the medicine with a glass of water. If you have trouble in swallowing the medicine, you can crush it and mix with half a glass of water. Stir and drink immediately. Continue to take this medicine, as long as your doctor tells you to do so, to obtain better results.
