Brilinta 

Indication

Brilinta (Ticagrelor) belongs to the group of medications called platelet aggregation inhibitors or antiplatelet agents. It is usually used along with acetylsalicylic acid (Asa) to help prevent a Stroke, Heart Attack, or dying from heart disease. It is used for people who have had a heart attack or Angina. It is also used for people who have heart disease and Type 2 Diabetes and who have had a procedure to open narrowed or blocked heart vessels. Brilinta (Ticagrelor) works by stopping the clumping of platelets in the blood. Platelets are small fragments in blood that clump together to stop bleeding when there is damage to a blood vessel. Clots can also develop inside a damaged blood vessel and cause a stroke or heart attack.

Your doctor may have suggested Brilinta (Ticagrelor) for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Brilinta (Ticagrelor), speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Brilinta (Ticagrelor) without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Brilinta (Ticagrelor) to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take Brilinta (Ticagrelor) if their doctor has not prescribed it.

Brilinta 

Dosage

When Brilinta (Ticagrelor) is used to prevent clotting for people with acute coronary syndrome (ACS), the usual starting dose of Brilinta (Ticagrelor) is 180 mg (two 90 mg tablets) for one dose, then 90 mg twice a day.

When Brilinta (Ticagrelor) is used to prevent clotting for people with a history of heart attack that occurred more than 1 year in the past, the recommended dose is 60 mg taken by mouth 2 times a day.

When Brilinta (Ticagrelor) is used to prevent clotting for people who have no history of heart attack, but who have Coronary Artery Disease and type 2 diabetes and have had a procedure to open a narrowed or blocked blood vessel, the recommended dose is 60 mg taken by mouth 2 times a day.

Many things can affect the dose of medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

Brilinta (Ticagrelor) may be taken with or without food and should be swallowed whole with water. For people that are unable to swallow tablets whole, the 90 mg tablet can be crushed to a fine powder and mixed in ½ glass of water. Consume the contents of the glass immediately. Rinse the glass with another ½ glass of water and immediately drink this.

If you are taking Brilinta (Ticagrelor), you will probably also be taking 75 mg to 150 mg of acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) daily.

It is important to take Brilinta (Ticagrelor) exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Store Brilinta (Ticagrelor) at room temperature and keep it out of the reach of children.

Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.

Brilinta 

Warnings

Before you begin using a medication, be sure to inform your doctor of any medical conditions or Allergies you may have, any medications you are taking, whether you are pregnant or breast-feeding, and any other significant facts about your health. These factors may affect how you should use Brilinta (Ticagrelor).

ASA dose: Brilinta (Ticagrelor) is usually used along with low doses of acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) unless there is a reason you should not take ASA. The dose of ASA should not be greater than 150 mg daily.

Bleeding: Brilinta (Ticagrelor) can increase your risk of bleeding. If you are at risk of bleeding (e.g., have had recent trauma, surgery, dental procedures, bleeding in the stomach or intestines, reduced liver function) or are taking any medications that increase your risk of bleeding (e.g., blood thinners, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medication), discuss with your doctor how Brilinta (Ticagrelor) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Brilinta (Ticagrelor), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Tell your doctor of any signs that your blood is not clotting as quickly as usual. Such symptoms may include black and tarry stools, blood in the urine, easy bruising, or cuts that won't stop bleeding.

Breathing problems: Brilinta (Ticagrelor) can cause shortness of breath for some people. It is usually mild to moderate and typically gets better as your body adjusts to the medication. If you have Asthma or COPD (Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease), discuss with your doctor how Brilinta (Ticagrelor) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Brilinta (Ticagrelor), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Dizziness/reduced alertness: Brilinta (Ticagrelor) may affect the mental or physical abilities needed to drive or operate machinery. Avoid driving, operating machinery, or performing other hazardous tasks until you have determined how Brilinta (Ticagrelor) affects you.

Grapefruit juice: Grapefruit juice affects how Brilinta (Ticagrelor) is removed from the body and may cause too much of the medication to build up in the body, possibly causing harmful side effects. Do not drink grapefruit juice or eat grapefruit at any time while taking Brilinta (Ticagrelor).

Heart rhythm: Brilinta (Ticagrelor) may cause changes in heart rhythm. If you have certain abnormal heart rhythms (e.g., sick sinus syndrome, 2nd- or 3rd-degree heart block, or fainting because of a slow heartbeat, and do not have a pacemaker) or are taking medication that slows the heart rate (e.g., Atenolol, Diltiazem, Verapamil, Metoprolol), discuss with your doctor how Brilinta (Ticagrelor) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Brilinta (Ticagrelor), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

High uric acid levels and gout: Brilinta (Ticagrelor) may cause an increase in the amount of uric acid in the blood. If you have or have had high uric acid blood levels or gout, discuss with your doctor how Brilinta (Ticagrelor) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Brilinta (Ticagrelor), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

If you develop painful, warm, and swollen joints or difficulty with urination, contact your doctor as soon as possible.

Kidney function: If you are receiving dialysis, discuss with your doctor how Brilinta (Ticagrelor) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Brilinta (Ticagrelor), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Liver function: Brilinta (Ticagrelor) is broken down by the liver so it can be removed from the body. Liver disease or reduced liver function may cause a build-up of Brilinta (Ticagrelor) in the body and cause side effects. If you have liver disease or decreased liver function, discuss with your doctor how Brilinta (Ticagrelor) may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Brilinta (Ticagrelor), and whether any special monitoring is needed.

If you have moderately to severely reduced liver function, you should not take Brilinta (Ticagrelor).

Stopping medication: If you stop Brilinta (Ticagrelor), you will be at an increased risk of having a stroke or heart attack. If your doctor suggests stopping Brilinta (Ticagrelor) temporarily because of side effects, it should be restarted as soon as the risk of the side effect is less than the risk of not taking the medication.

Surgery: If you have elective (planned) surgery, your doctor will tell you when to stop taking Brilinta (Ticagrelor) before the surgery.

Pregnancy: The safety of using Brilinta (Ticagrelor) during pregnancy has not been established. If you could become pregnant while taking Brilinta (Ticagrelor), use appropriate birth control to prevent pregnancy.

Brilinta (Ticagrelor) should not be used during pregnancy unless the benefits outweigh the risks. If you become pregnant while taking Brilinta (Ticagrelor), contact your doctor immediately.
