How does Effient work?

The way that Effient functions is by preventing blood clots from forming when blood cells stick together. By inhibiting a protein known as glycoprotein IIb/IIIa, effient achieves this. The blood cells' ability to adhere to one another depends on this protein. By blocking this protein, Effient stops the blood cells from clotting.

In patients with coronary artery disease, effient is used to treat and prevent blood clots. Aspirin is taken along with effient. Effient should not be used exclusively.
