Brilinta contains the active ingredient ticagrelor, which belongs to a group of medicines known as antiplatelet medicines. It is used in combination with low-dose aspirin in adults to help prevent blood clots and reduce the risk of life-threatening complications caused by blood clots. This includes stroke, heart attack, and heart or blood vessel problems. Brilinta is prescribed to patients who have:
— Had a heart attack a year ago and are at risk of developing a heart attack or stroke

Brilinta is an antiplatelet agent. Platelets are cell fragments in the blood that form clots and stop bleeding. Ticagrelor helps prevent clumping and the risk of forming blood clots.
Brilinta is for oral use only. You may take it before or after consuming food. Brilinta tablets can be crushed to a fine powder, poured into half a glass of water, and drunk immediately for patients who cannot swallow the tablet. The glass should be rinsed with a half glass of water to ensure the contents are drunk. The usual dose for adults is 90 mg. If you had a recent heart attack or angina, a doctor would give you two 90 mg tablets as your first dose. After the first dose, the usual dose is one 90 mg tablet twice daily. After a year, your doctor may continue your treatment with a lower dose of Ticagrelor.
