How This Drug Works
Platelet Aggregation Inhibitors
Platelet aggregation inhibitors help prevent heart attacks and strokes by decreasing excessive blood clotting. They do this by preventing platelets from becoming sticky and clumping.
Platelet aggregation inhibitors help prevent heart attacks and strokes by decreasing excessive blood clotting.  They do this by preventing platelets from becoming sticky and clumping.<br><br> Platelets are blood cells that naturally collect to form &#34;clots&#34; and stop bleeding when there is damage to cells. When platelets form clots in the blood vessels, this can restrict or block blood flow in vessels. This can lead to strokes and heart attacks.<br><br>Platelet aggregation inhibitors, once active, prevent platelets from clumping. These drugs bind to platelets for its entire life, about 7&#45;10 days. Consequently, platelets can only clump when the body releases new platelets into circulation that haven&#39;t been affected by the drug.
