Prasugrel is an effective medicine to be used in patients with heart disease like heart attack and unbalanced angina who go through a certain heart process (angioplasty). This medication is helpful in preventing extra severe heart and blood vessel problems like heart attacks, strokes, blood clots in stents. It works by blocking platelets from sticking collectively to construct damaging blood clots. This "anti-platelet" effect helps to maintain blood flowing easily in your body. Prasugrel is used along with aspirin to put off severe or critical problems with the heart and blood vessels in people who have had a heart attack or rigorous chest pain and have been treated with angioplasty (process to open the blood vessels that supply blood to the heart). Prasugrel is related to a class of medications called anti-platelet medications. It works by preventing platelets (a type of blood cell) from gathering and forming clots that may cause a heart attack or stroke.
