Vorapaxar

Pronounced

"VOR-a-PAX-ar"

Uses

Vorapaxar is used to help prevent heart attacks and strokes in people who have had a heart attack or have poor blood flow (peripheral arterial disease).

It works by blocking certain blood cells called platelets from sticking together and forming harmful blood clots. Harmful blood clots can cause heart attacks, strokes, and other serious problems. This "anti-platelet" effect helps keep blood flowing smoothly in your body.

How to Use This Medication

Read the Medication Guide provided by your pharmacist before you start taking vorapaxar and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

Take this medication by mouth with or without food as directed by your doctor, usually once daily. Take it regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, take it at the same time each day.

Your doctor may direct you to take other anti-platelet drugs (such as aspirin, clopidogrel) with this medication. Follow your doctor's directions carefully.

Do not increase your dose or take this medication more often than prescribed. Your condition will not improve any faster, and your risk of side effects will increase.

Keep taking vorapaxar even if you feel well. Do not stop taking it without consulting your doctor.
