Indications for use
Prevention of atherothrombotic complications:
adult patients with myocardial infarction (with a prescription from a few days to 35 days), ischemic stroke (with lapse of 7 days to 6 months) or diagnosed with peripheral arterial occlusive disease;
adult patients with acute coronary syndrome:
– Segment elevation ST (unstable angina or myocardial infarction without the Q wave), including patients who underwent stenting during percutaneous coronary intervention (in combination with ASA);
– C-segment elevation ST (acute myocardial infarction) for medical treatment and the possibility of thrombolysis (in combination with ASA).
– Prevention of atherothrombotic and thromboembolic events, including stroke, atrial fibrillation (atrial fibrillation).
– Patients with atrial fibrillation (atrial fibrillation), which have at least one risk factor for vascular events, are not eligible indirect anticoagulants and have a low risk of bleeding (in combination with ASA).
Hypersensitivity to clopidogrel or any of the excipients of the formulation;
severe hepatic impairment;
acute bleeding, such as bleeding peptic ulcer or intracranial hemorrhage;
rare hereditary galactose intolerance, lactase deficiency and glucose-galactose malabsorption;
pregnancy and lactation (see “Pregnancy and breastfeeding”.);
Children up to age 18 years (safety and efficacy not established).
With caution in the following conditions: moderate hepatic impairment, where possible predisposition to bleeding (limited clinical experience); renal insufficiency (limited clinical experience); trauma, surgical intervention (see “Special Instructions”.); in diseases in which there is a predisposition to bleeding (especially gastrointestinal or intraocular), especially while the use of drugs, which can cause damage to the gastrointestinal mucosa (such as ASA), and NAIP); in patients who have an increased risk of bleeding: due to trauma, surgery or other pathological conditions and in patients treated with ASA, heparin, warfarin, inhibitors of glycoprotein IIb / IIIa, NSAIDs, including selective COX-2 inhibitors, or SSRIs (see “Special Instructions”.); in patients with low activity of isoenzyme CYP2C19 (see “Pharmacokinetics” sub “Pharmacogenetics”, “Dosage and administration”, “Special Instructions”.); When specifying a history of allergic and hematological reactions to other thienopyridines (such as ticlopidine, prasugrel) (possibility of cross-allergic and hematological reactions, see “Special Instructions”.); at the recently adjourned transient ischemic attack or ischemic stroke.
