Any specific brand name of Ticlopidine may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Ticlopidine may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Ticlopidine 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 Ticlopidine, speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Ticlopidine without consulting your doctor.

Ticlopidine Dosage

The usual recommended adult dose of ticlopidine is 250 mg twice daily.

Ticlopidine should always be taken with food or just after a meal to avoid stomach upset.

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 one given here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

It is important to take Ticlopidine exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule. If it is almost time for your next 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 Ticlopidine at room temperature, protect it from light and moisture, and keep it out of the reach of children.

Ticlopidine Precautions

There may be an interaction between ticlopidine and any of the following:

  • stop taking one of the medications,
  • change one of the medications to another,
  • change how you are taking one or both of the medications, or
  • leave everything as is.

An interaction between two medications does not always mean that you must stop taking one of them. Speak to your doctor about how any drug interactions are being managed or should be managed.

Medications other than those listed above may interact with Ticlopidine. Tell your doctor or prescriber about all prescription, over-the-counter (non-prescription), and herbal medications that you are taking. Also tell them about any supplements you take. Since caffeine, alcohol, the Nicotine from cigarettes, or street drugs can affect the action of many medications, you should let your prescriber know if you use them.

Ticlopidine Warnings

Before you begin taking a medication, be sure to inform your doctor of any medication 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 take Ticlopidine.

Blood cell problems: A small percentage of people taking ticlopidine develop neutropenia (a lowering of white blood cells that fight infection in the body). Severe neutropenia occurs during the first 3 to 12 weeks of therapy and may develop quickly over a few days. The condition may be life-threatening. It is usually reversible; recovery usually occurs within 1 to 3 weeks after stopping the medication, but may take longer on occasion.

Thrombocytopenia (severe lowering of the platelets that help to clot the blood) is a rare but serious side effect caused by ticlopidine. Thrombocytopenia occurs during the first 3 to 12 weeks of therapy, and recovery usually occurs after the medication is stopped.

Thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura is a rare condition that may occur while taking ticlopidine and requires immediate medical attention. Signs include thrombocytopenia (unusual bruising or bleeding, gums that bleed more easily), confusion, becoming easily tired, a rapid heartbeat, purplish spots in the skin, and fever.

All people taking ticlopidine need to have lab tests done every 2 weeks, beginning prior to the time you start the medication, until the end of the third month of treatment. This is to make sure no blood cell problems (such as those described above) occur. Your doctor will monitor your lab results regularly, so it is important to get your blood tests done as recommended by your doctor.

Blood clotting: If you take ticlopidine, you may bleed for a longer period of time, or your blood may require more time to clot. Report any signs of unexpected or excessive bleeding (e.g., nosebleeds, excessive bruising, black tarry stools) to your doctor. Other medications (e.g., ASA, Warfarin) can increase the risk of longer blood clotting time, so let your doctor know of all medications you are taking.

Kidney function: If you have severely reduced kidney function, discuss with your doctor how Ticlopidine may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Ticlopidine, and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Liver function: People with severely reduced liver function should not take Ticlopidine. If you have reduced liver function, you should discuss with your doctor how Ticlopidine may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Ticlopidine, and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Surgery: It may be necessary to stop Ticlopidine temporarily if you are scheduled for surgery or are having teeth removed to ensure that you do not lose too much blood. It is important to inform all doctors involved in your care, that you are taking Ticlopidine.

Pregnancy: The medication should not be used during pregnancy. Your doctor should perform a pregnancy test before you start Ticlopidine. While using Ticlopidine, you should consider using more than one form of contraception. If you become pregnant while taking Ticlopidine, contact your doctor immediately.

Breast-feeding: It is not known if ticlopidine passes into breast milk. If you are a breast-feeding mother and are taking ticlopidine, it may affect your baby. Talk to your doctor about whether you should continue breast-feeding.

Children: The safety and effectiveness of taking Ticlopidine have not been established for children.
