Introduction

Ticlopid 250mg Tablet is a medicine used to prevent stroke in people for whom aspirin has failed to work or is not suitable. It lowers the chances of another stroke in people who have already suffered a stroke or a mini-stroke (brief stroke-like attack that resolves within a few minutes to hours).

Ticlopid 250mg Tablet is an antiplatelet medicine or a blood thinner, which works by reducing the formation of harmful blood clots in blood vessels and thereby helps to prevent a stroke. It may also be prescribed along with aspirin to people who have undergone angioplasty (stent placement in blocked blood vessels of the heart). This helps to prevent blockage of a stent by blood clots.

It should be taken with food, preferably at the same time each day. It is important to keep taking this medicine regularly even if you feel well. If you stop taking this medicine, it may increase your chance of having a stroke.

The most common side effects of Ticlovil 250mg Tablet are nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, rash, and decreased white blood cell count. Some people may develop bleeding as a side effect with this medicine, which may be in the form of bruising, nose bleeds, blood in urine or stools (black-colored stools), or heavier periods than usual in women. Consult your doctor straight away if the bleeding persists or worries you.

Ticlopid 250mg Tablet is not suitable for some people. Do not take it if you are bleeding from anywhere in the body such as a stomach ulcer or bleeding within the brain, or if you have severe liver problems, or if you have blood formation related problems (eg. aplastic anemia, neutropenia, etc.). Your doctor will check your complete blood count (CBC) before starting this medicine and then monitor it periodically during treatment. This medicine may need to be stopped temporarily before planned surgery or dental treatment.
