About Ticaspan 60 Tablet

Ticaspan 60 Tablet belongs to the antiplatelet drugs (blood thinners) primarily taken to prevent heart attack or stroke in people at high risk of heart disease. Ticaspan 60 Tablet  helps to prevent blood clots in people with acute coronary syndrome (heart doesn't receive enough oxygen) who have had stents placed in blood vessels in their heart. A heart attack occurs when a blood clot blocks the blood flow to the heart. This blockage of arteries is often an accumulation of cholesterol, fat, and other substances, which form plaque in the arteries that feed the heart (coronary arteries). A heart attack signs include chest pain, upper body pain, sweating, nausea, fatigue, and trouble breathing.

Ticaspan 60 Tablet contains Ticagrelor, which is a blood thinner that prevents clot formation in the blood vessels. Platelets are blood cells that stick together and block any cuts and breaks in blood vessels. But platelets can stick together inside already narrowed blood vessels to form a clot in people at risk of heart attack or stroke. The clot can stop blood from flowing to the heart or brain and cause a heart attack or stroke. Here, Ticaspan 60 Tablet slows the blood's clotting action by making platelets less sticky.

Disease/Condition Glossary

Blood clot: Blood clot is an 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 surgery or cut, accident, and trauma. When a clot forms inside the veins, it won't always dissolve independently and can become an even life-threatening situation.

Heart attack: Heart attack occurs when a blood clot blocks the blood flow to the heart. This blockage of arteries is 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. A heart attack signs include chest pain, upper body pain, sweating, nausea, fatigue, and trouble breathing.

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.

Acute coronary syndrome: Acute coronary syndrome is most often caused by plaque rupture or clot formation in the heart's arteries. The symptoms may include heart attack-like chest pressure, chest pressure while resting or doing light activity, or sudden heart stoppage.
