General Information On Aggrastat
Aggrastat is used usually as a means to prevent blood platelets from clumping together. The main component in Aggrastat is a chemical called tirofiban, which prevents blood from coagulating. In most cases, it is used for people who have severe heart conditions, chest pains, blood clots in important arteries, and during a surgical procedure called angioplasty. It is also used in the treatment of some kinds of thrombosis, and for the targeted removal of blood clots. Particular care should be taken when you buy Aggrastat, because in addition to preventing unwanted blood clots, it will also make you bleed profusely even from minor cuts and wounds.
Side Effects for Aggrastat
More often than not, Aggrastat is not associated with severe side effects that require urgent medical attention. Commonly experienced side effects include conditions like sore throat, headaches, dizziness, nausea, and pain in the stomach and back. You do not need to worry much about these symptoms, as they disappear over time and do not develop into something more serious. Since this medication is usually administered in a clinic, there is little chance of anything going wrong.
However, in certain cases, severe and serious complications may arise due to the use of Aggrastat. These may include weakness, fatigue, severe headaches, problems with balance, vision, or speech, fever, chest pains and bleeding which does not stop naturally. If any of these symptoms occur, your doctor should be contacted immediately, and preventive measures should be taken to mitigate these symptoms. Special care should also be taken to avoid injuries or infections after taking Aggrastat.
For people who are allergic to Tirofiban and other similar drugs, the use of Aggrastat is strictly not recommended. Similarly, if the patient has a history of blood pressure related complaints, liver disease, colitis, and other such disorders, Aggrastat has to be administered very carefully. People who have recently undergone a surgery or have had a history of blood clot related disorders in the past must consult their doctor before using Aggrastat. It is also important to remember that small injuries may lead to heavy bleeding during the use of Aggrastat, and so, such injuries should be carefully avoided.
Aggrastat is usually given in the form of an injection. The dosage is decided as per the medical requirement of the patient. Aggrastat is only used after a careful review of the patient’s medical history and careful analysis of his/her blood. Since it is usually administered in a clinic, there is not much likelihood of an overdose, but in case of one, emergency medical help should be sought right away.
Some other drugs can have powerful interactions with Aggrastat, and its use should be closely monitored and supervised by medical personnel. Tirofiban has been known to react with other drugs like Tamoxifen, Fluvastatin, and Torsemide. For people who are already taking blood-thinning medications like heparin, warfarin, enoxaparin, and danaparoid, the use of Aggrastat may not be recommended. In addition, other medications that prevent blood clots, like anistreplase and streptokinase, should not be used simultaneously with Aggrastat
