Description

Brilinta (Ticagrelor) 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 (angina). It is also used to prevent blood clots from forming in people with coronary stents (metal tubes surgically placed in clogged blood vessels to improve blood flow) who have had a heart attack or severe chest pain. Ticagrelor is in a class of medications called antiplatelet medications. It works by preventing platelets (a type of blood cell) from collecting and forming clots that may cause a heart attack or stroke. Platelet aggregation inhibitors help prevent heart attacks and strokes by decreasing excessive blood clotting. They do this by preventing platelets from becoming sticky and clumping. It keeps blood flowing smoothly in your body. Ticagrelor will help prevent serious problems with your heart and blood vessels only as long as you take the medication.

Ticagrelor comes as a tablet to take by mouth. It is usually taken with or without food two times a day. Take ticagrelor at around the same times every day. Follow the directions on your prescription label carefully, and ask your doctor or pharmacist to explain any part you do not understand. Take ticagrelor exactly as directed. Do not take more or less of it or take it more often than prescribed by your doctor.If you are unable to swallow ticagrelor tablets, you may crush the tablet and mix it with water. Drink the mixture immediately, then refill the glass with water and stir and again drink the mixture immediately. If you stop taking ticagrelor, there is a higher risk that you may have a heart attack or stroke. If you have a stent, there is also a higher risk that you could develop a blood clot in the stent if you stop taking ticagrelor too soon.
