It reduces the chances of having another heart attack, stroke or dying from a disease related to heart or blood vessels.
Axcer belongs to a group of medicines called antiplatelet drugs. Axcer affects the platelets (also called thrombocytes).

Axcer works by preventing the clumping of platelets and this reduces the chance of a blood clot forming that can reduce blood flow.
