Prasugrel is used together with aspirin in patients with heart disease (recent heart attack, unstable angina) and who are undergoing a certain heart procedure (angioplasty). This medicine helps prevent other serious heart / vascular problems (such as heart attacks, strokes, blood clots in stents). It works by preventing platelets from clumping together and forming blood clots that can be harmful. This antiplatelet effect helps maintain proper blood flow through the body.
