clopidogrel / acetylsalicylic acid
Table of contents
DuoPlavin is a medicine used to prevent problems caused by blood clots and hardening of the arteries, such as a myocardial infarction (heart attack), in adults who are already taking both clopidogrel and acetylsalicylic acid (also known as aspirin) as separate tablets. It can be used in the following groups of patients who have a condition known as acute coronary syndrome:
- patients who have unstable angina (a severe type of chest pain) or who have had a heart attack with no ST-segment elevation (an abnormal reading on the ECG or electrocardiogram), including those who are having a stent (a short tube in an artery to prevent it closing up) inserted as part of a percutaneous coronary intervention (a procedure that unblocks blood vessels of the heart to restore its blood supply);
- patients being treated for heart attack with ST-segment elevation who are having a percutaneous coronary intervention or for whom the doctor thinks that they would benefit from thrombolytic or fibrinolytic treatment (treatments to dissolve blood clots).
DuoPlavin contains the active substances clopidogrel and acetylsalicylic acid.
