Cloasp 75/75mg Tablets 30's

Cloasp 75/75 mg contains clopidogrel and belongs to a group of medicines called antiplatelet medicinal products. Platelets are very small structures in the blood which clump together during blood clotting. By preventing this clumping, antiplatelet medicinal products reduce the chances of blood clots forming (a process called thrombosis). Cloasp is taken by adults to prevent blood clots (thrombi) forming in hardened blood vessels (arteries), a process known as atherothrombosis, which can lead to atherothrombotic events (such as stroke, heart attack, or death).
How to use

If you have experienced severe chest pain (unstable angina or heart attack), your doctor may give you 300 mg of Cloasp (4 tablets of 75 mg) once at the start of treatment.
