Effient Information:

Effient (generic name Prasugrel Hydrochloride) is an antiplatelet medication that will reduce the chances of a patient suffering a cardiac event (ex. Heart attacks, strokes), following the placement of a stent. A stent is used to widen the arteries of patients who have narrowed arteries due to plaque (cholesterol) buildup. Effient is used in combination with aspirin (ASA) to produce its effects.

Effient Side Effects:

What are the potential side effects of Effient?
Effient works by decreasing the amount of time for the blood to clot. Therefore the most common side effects will be bleeding related side effects such as nose bleeds, increased bruising and an increase in the time that it takes for bleeding to stop. Another more infrequent side effect may be nausea, usually only occuring when Effient treatment is first started.

What is the relationshipe with Effient and bleeding?
The most common serious side effect of Effient will be the occurrence of bleeding, the incidence of this occuring is listed below. This potential increased risk of bleeding is the consequence of taking any antiplatelet medication, as well as the consequence of taking antiplatelet medications in combination with Aspirin. As a general precaution, a patient should REPORT IMMEDIATELY to his/her primary care physician any incidence of unexplained bleeding. This may include increased blood in the stool (darkened tarry colored stools), increased bruising that will continue to get larger, as well as coughing or vomiting spurts of blood, pink or brown urine, and any bleeding that does not stop.

Effient is taken along with Aspirin (dosage of 81-325mg).
