What is Brilinta?
Brilinta (ticagrelor) is an anticoagulant (blood thinner) prescribed for adults with coronary artery disease or who have recently suffered a heart attack or experienced severe chest pain. It usually is prescribed along with a low-dose aspirin.
Brilinta comes in tablet form and is taken by mouth, twice daily during the first year following an ACS (acute coronary syndrome) event. It may be taken with or without food.
What Does Simplefill Provide?
The term “acute coronary syndrome” (ACS) refers to a variety of conditions that can suddenly reduce or block blood flow to the heart. It includes sudden cardiac events such as myocardial infarction (heart attack) and unstable angina, both of which can cause the death of heart tissue. Living with ACS can be very stressful, and acute psychological stress can trigger a heart attack.
Simplefill understands the relationship between stress and sudden cardiac events. We know that worrying about being able to afford essential medications like Brilinta contributes to such stress, and we’re committed to ensuring that our members can maintain an uninterrupted supply. Everything we do is aligned with that mission.
How Does Brilinta Work?
Brilinta is classified as an antiplatelet agent. It blocks the P2Y12 receptors that cause platelets to clot. It prevents platelets from adhering to each other and forming dangerous clots that block blood flow in and around the heart.
Brilinta and aspirin do essentially the same thing, but in different ways, which is why they’re commonly prescribed together.
