Overview

Introduction of Aggrifib Injection

Aggrifib Injection is a blood thinner which prevents formation of harmful blood clots. It helps to prevent a heart attack in patients presenting with severe chest pain due to sudden decrease in blood flow to the heart. It is given under the supervision of a doctor as an infusion (drip) into a vein. It can increase the risk of bleeding, so be careful while shaving, cutting nails, using sharp objects, or engaging in contact sports (e.g. football, wrestling).

This medicine may also cause low blood platelets as a side effect in some patients.
