Brilinta Medication Uses and Indications:
Brilinta belongs to the group of drugs known as antiplatelets. This means they act by blocking the platelets from sticking to each other, thus preventing the formation of a blood clot. This results in a smooth, uninterrupted flow of the blood through the blood vessels and the body.
The antiplatelet action in conjunction with low doses of aspirin helps prevent heart attack and stroke in individuals who have an existing heart problem like unstable angina or a previous heart attack. Furthermore, it also prevents heart attack and stroke in patients who have undergone certain heart surgeries like stent replacement, coronary artery bypass graft CABG or angioplasty.
Brilinta medication can easily be purchased from Canada Pharmacy at the best rates in the market.
Brilinta should be strictly taken as prescribed by your doctor. Usually, it is taken orally, with or without food, twice a day. It should be taken at the same time every day for maximum effect.
Do not take Brilinta without aspirin, which is usually given in the dose of 75 to 100 mg or as directed by your physician.
