SALT INFORMATION

Prasugrel(10 mg)

TYPICAL USAGE

Reduction of thrombotic cardiovascular events (including stent thrombosis) in patients with acute coronary syndrome who are to be managed with percutaneous coronary intervention.

SIDE EFFECTS

Dizziness, Tiredness, Nausea, Diarrhea, Dyspnea, Hypotension, Cough, Pain in upper & lower extremities.

DRUG INTERACTION

Prasugrel is a weak inhibitor of CYP2B6. This effect is likely to be of clinical concern only when prasugrel is coadministered with medicinal products for which CYP2B6 is the only metabolic pathway and have a narrow therapeutic window (e.g. cyclophosphamide, efavirenz).

MECHANISM OF ACTION

Prasugrel is an thienopyridine and a prodrug which inhibits ADP receptors by irreversibly acting on the P2Y12 receptor on platelets. The active metabolite of prasugrel prevents binding of adenosine diphosphate (ADP) to its platelet receptor, impairing the ADP-mediated activation of the glycoprotein GPIIb/IIIa complex. Prasugrel is proposed to have a similar mechanism of action to clopidogrel.
