Introduction

Tirofuse 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 a sudden decrease in blood flow to the heart.

It may also cause headache, nausea, and fever as its side effects. Your doctor will explain the benefits and risks associated with this medicine before it is administered.

This medicine is used with caution for some people. Before taking it, you must inform the doctor if you are suffering from any bleeding disorder, kidney or liver disease.
