About CLOFIRST AS 75MG TABLET

CLOFIRST AS 75MG TABLET belongs to the class of antiplatelet drugs used for the prevention of heart attack and stroke. A heart attack occurs when a blood clot blocks the blood flow to the heart. This blockage of arteries is most often an accumulation of fat, cholesterol and other substances, which form a plaque in the arteries that feed the heart (coronary arteries). Signs of a heart attack include chest pain, upper body pain, sweating, nausea, fatigue and trouble breathing.

CLOFIRST AS 75MG TABLET is composed of two medicines, namely: Aspirin and Clopidogrel. These are blood thinners (anti-platelet) that prevent the formation of a clot in the blood vessels. Aspirin acts as a blood-thinning or anti-platelet agent in a low dose (about 75 mg) to prevent heart attack and stroke. Clopidogrel acts by preventing blood clots if you have severe chest pain (unstable angina or heart attack), stroke, and peripheral arterial disease (heart problem due to narrowed blood vessels). CLOFIRST AS 75MG TABLET helps in the free flow of blood, thereby preventing a heart attack, stroke, deep vein thrombosis (blood clot in the vein), and pulmonary embolism (blood clots in the arteries of lungs).

Your doctor will advise you on how often you take your tablets based on your medical condition. The common side effects of CLOFIRST AS 75MG TABLET include abdominal pain, indigestion, diarrhoea, easy bruising, and nosebleeds.

    Patients Concern

    Disease/Condition Glossary

    A blood clot is a clump or aggregation of blood that changes from a liquid to a gel-like state. Clotting is a natural process that prevents you from losing too much blood in an accident, trauma, surgery or cut. When a clot forms inside the veins, it won’t always dissolve on its own and can become even life-threatening situation.

    Stroke: When our brain does not get sufficient oxygen and blood supply, it starts dying within a few minutes leading to a heart attack or stroke.

    Heart attack: It occurs when a blood clot blocks the blood flow to the heart. This blockage of arteries is most often an accumulation of fat, cholesterol and other substances, which form a plaque in the arteries that feed the heart (coronary arteries). During a heart attack (myocardial infarction), the blood supply which nourishes the heart with oxygen is cut off. This causes the heart muscle to die. Signs of a heart attack include chest pain, upper body pain, sweating, nausea, fatigue and trouble breathing.
