Effient (Prasugrel) is an Rx medication that is used in addition to acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) to help prevent heart attacks, strokes, and other circulation problems in people who have had severe chest pain or a heart attack and have been treated with a procedure called angioplasty, also called balloon angioplasty.

Effient belongs to the class of medications called platelet aggregation inhibitors or antiplatelets.

Normally, platelets help the blood to clot when needed, such as after an injury. When arteries become narrowed by fat deposits (plaques), platelets often clump together in the vessels. Unstable plaques can rupture, leading to more platelet clumping that can cause a larger blockage of the artery. This further narrows the arteries and increases the chances of heart attack, stroke, or other circulation problems.

Angioplasty is a common technique used to mechanically widen narrowed or obstructed blood vessels with an artificial tube, called a stent. Effient helps to reduce the chances of platelets sticking together and forming clumps that can block an artery or a stent.
