Brilinta (Ticagrelor) Medication Information
By Dr. Conor Sheehy, Pharm.D. - Medical Professional
Brilinta attaches to platelets and stopped them from clumping together and forming clots. It is used in people with a history of acute coronary syndrome (ACS) or myocardial infarction (MI). It can also reduce stent thrombosis in patients who have received a stent to treat ACS.
ACS describes several conditions where blood flow to the heart is deceased. After experiencing ACS, you are at an increased risk for stroke, heart attack, and cardiovascular death.
Brilinta works by preventing the formation of clots that would cause these events.
The first dose is 180 mg by mouth and is usually given in an acute care setting like a hospital.
After the first dose, take 90 mg by mouth twice daily for one year. After the first year, reduce the dose to 60 mg by mouth twice daily.
Brilinta should be used with 75-100 mg of aspirin every day.
Side effects of Brilinta may include:
- ECG abnormality
- Increased creatinine
- Increased uric acid
- Skin rash
Aspirin can be used while taking Brilinta, but it must be dosed less than 100 mg per day. Doses higher than this can decrease the effectiveness of Brilinta.
Recently, Brilinta has been linked to an increased risk of central sleep apnea. Brilinta has also been associated with slow heart rate and second-degree and third-degree atrioventricular blocks.
Do not use Brilinta if you have a history of intracranial hemorrhage (ICH) or an ongoing active bleed.
Brilinta and other antiplatelet agents can significantly increase the risk of bleeding events. Risk factors for bleed include a history of GI bleed, liver impairment, advanced age, recent trauma, or the use of other medications that increase the risk of bleeding.
Brilinta has many possible drug interactions, including:
- St. John’s Wort
Tell your doctor and pharmacist about all of the medications you are taking before starting Brilinta.
Store at room temperature, or approximately 25°C (77°F).
- Brilinta can be crushed or mixed with water instead of swallowed whole.
- People taking Brilinta can experience shortness of breath, which should go away within one week after stopping the medication.
- Avoid non-steroidal anti-inflammatory agents while taking Brilinta, except for aspirin 75-100 mg once daily.
If I have bleeding side effects, should I stop Brilinta?
When possible, your doctor should manage bleeding without stopping Brilinta because stopping increases the risk of cardiovascular events like heart attack, stroke, and death.
If I feel better, can I stop taking Brilinta?
No, do not stop taking the medication unless directed by your doctor. Typically it should be used for at least one year after ACS.
Should I take Brilinta with or without food?
You can take Brilinta with food or on an empty stomach.
