Detailed Answer:
Hello!

Welcome and thank you for asking on HCM!

I would like to know if you did you mean to write Brillinta, also called Ticagrelor.

If you are asking about this drug, you should know that this is a blood thinner, anti- platelet agent.

It is indicated in coronary artery disease, as it helps avoid cardiovascular thrombotic events or a heart attack in these patients, by avoiding blood clot formation in the coronary arteries.

It is more effective compared to other drugs of this class ( aspirin and clopidogrel).

Hope you will find this answer helpful!

I remain at your disposal for any other questions, whenever you need!

Kind regards,

Dr.Iliri
