About Apixabid 2.5mg Tablet 10's

Apixabid 2.5mg Tablet 10's belongs to a class of drugs called 'anticoagulants' (blood thinners) primarily used to prevent and treat deep vein thrombosis (blood clots in leg veins) and pulmonary embolism (blood clots in the lung). Additionally, Apixabid 2.5mg Tablet 10's is used to prevent blood clots in patients with atrial fibrillation (irregular heartbeat). Deep vein thrombosis is a condition in which blood clots form in deep veins usually in legs. Pulmonary embolism is a condition in which blood clot blocks the arteries in the lungs. Atrial fibrillation is a condition that causes irregular, often fast heartbeat. Blood clots are formed to stop bleeding that occurs due to tissues injury. Though blood clots are useful to stop bleeding, they may be harmful when abnormally formed within blood vessels as they block blood vessels and inhibit blood flow to essential organs such as brain, heart or lungs.

Apixabid 2.5mg Tablet 10's contains Apixaban that works by inhibiting the action of blood clotting factor (X a) which is an important element of blood clotting. Thereby, it prevents the conversion of fibrinogen (soluble protein) to fibrin (insoluble protein) and helps in preventing blood clots formation.
