Contain the active ingredient : Apixaban which is is an anticoagulant medicine that's used to treat and prevent dangerous blood clots in your blood vessels. It's sometimes called a 'blood thinner'.
Blood clotting starts when blood cells called platelets clump together and produce chemicals that activate clotting factors in the blood. The activated clotting factors cause a protein called fibrinogen to be converted into another called fibrin. Fibrin binds the platelets together, forming a blood clot.
Apixaban works by binding to clotting factor Xa, and this ultimately reduces the formation of fibrin and makes the blood less able to clot.
What is it used for?
Treating blood clots in the veins of the legs (deep vein thrombosis) or in the lungs (pulmonary embolism). It's also used to prevent these types of blood clots if you've had hip or knee replacement surgery.
Preventing blood clots that could cause a heart attack in people who have suffered an acute coronary syndrome (a group of heart conditions that includes heart attack and unstable angina).
Preventing blood clots in people with hardening of the arteries in the heart or (coronary artery disease) or legs (peripheral arterial disease).
Preventing blood clots that could cause a stroke or blockage of other blood vessels in the body, in people with a type of irregular heartbeat called atrial fibrillation (AF).
