Benefits of Eptide Infusion

In Prevention of Blood clots

Eptide 0.75mg/ml Infusion prevents new blood clots from forming and prevents the existing ones from getting bigger. It works by blocking a substance in the body which is involved in blood clotting. Thus it helps your blood flow smoothly throughout the body. This can help reduce damage caused by clots in your lungs (pulmonary embolism), brain (stroke), heart (heart attack) or other blood vessels (thrombosis).

In Prevention of Heart attack

It prevents blood from clotting inside the veins and arteries. This helps the blood flow freely around your body thereby preventing a heart attack or stroke (or deep vein thrombosis or pulmonary embolism). Follow your doctor’s instructions carefully and make appropriate lifestyle changes (such as eating healthy and staying active) to maximize the effectiveness of this medicine.
