Important Safety Information

What is the most important information patients should know about Effient?

Effient® (prasugrel) can cause bleeding. If patients have unexplained or excessive bleeding while on Effient, they should contact their doctor right away as some bleeding can be serious, and sometimes fatal. Patients should not take Effient if they currently have abnormal bleeding, such as stomach or intestinal bleeding, bleeding in their head, or have a history of stroke, or “mini-stroke” (also known as transient ischemic attack or TIA).


Patients should get medical help right away if they suddenly have slurring of speech, weakness or numbness in one part of their body, blurry vision, and/or severe headache. These may be symptoms of a stroke or TIA. If patients have a stroke or TIA while taking Effient, their doctor will probably stop Effient.  


Before having any surgery, patients should talk to their doctor about stopping Effient. If possible, patients should stop taking Effient at least 1 week (7 days) before any surgery, as instructed by their doctor who prescribed Effient.


Patients may also have a higher risk of bleeding if they take Effient and they: a) are age 75 or older, b) weigh less than 132 pounds, c) are taking anticoagulants (eg, warfarin) or regular daily use of NSAIDs, d) have had recent trauma, such as an accident or surgery, e) have severe liver problems, or f) have a stomach ulcer.


Patients should not stop taking Effient without talking to the doctor who prescribes it for them. People who are treated with angioplasty and have a stent, and stop taking Effient too soon, have a higher risk of a blood clot in the stent, having a heart attack, or dying.
