What is Brilinta?
Brilinta (ticagrelor) is often prescribed in combination with low-dose aspirin to prevent stroke, heart attack, and other sudden-onset and potentially life-threatening events in people with a history of or at risk for heart disease or stroke. This combination of Brilinta and aspirin is referred to as Dual Antiplatelet Therapy, or DAPT. People with acute coronary syndrome who take Brilinta as part of a DAPT protocol are less likely to need an invasive treatment strategy such as angioplasty for future thrombotic events.
Brilinta is also prescribed to prevent clotting after stent placement or other heart surgeries.
Brilinta comes in tablet form and is taken by mouth, with or without food, usually twice daily.
What does Simplefill Provide?
Living with the threat of a sudden thrombotic event (heart attack or stroke) can be very stressful. Medical intervention may prevent the death of heart cells when blood flow to the heart is reduced or blocked by a blood clot. It may also prevent the death of brain cells during a stroke, but administering it requires an invasive procedure that must be initiated very soon after the onset of symptoms. Knowing that Brilinta could eliminate the need for such drastic action is reassuring, but only if it’s possible to maintain an uninterrupted supply of this essential medication.
Simplefill strives to reduce the stress of living with a serious chronic medical condition that requires taking expensive medications every day. We know that help is available for those who are having trouble paying for their prescriptions, whether they are uninsured, underinsured, or income-challenged. We view raising awareness about prescription assistance as a key aspect of our mission to connect those who need prescription assistance with the programs and organizations offering it.
How does Brilinta Work?
Brilinta is referred to as a platelet aggregation inhibitor, which means that it helps keep blood platelets from sticking together on the inner wall of an artery. Platelets that adhere to each other on an artery wall may form a clot that blocks the artery at that location. They could break away from the artery wall and travel to create a blockage elsewhere.
