Tirofiban

No Prescription

Tirofiban blocks platelets from forming blood clots.
Tirofiban is a type of "blood thinner".
Tirofiban is prescribed before certain procedures to open up the blood vessels in the heart (balloon angioplasty, coronary stent placement, percutaneous coronary intervention-PCI, coronary artery bypass graft-CABG).
Tirofiban is prescribed to prevent blood clots that can cause a heart attack or other serious blood flow problems.
Tirofiban is prescribed to prevent complications during episodes of chest pain or a heart attack, or during a procedure to treat a blocked artery of the heart.
Tirofiban is prescribed with heparin and aspirin.
Tirofiban is prescribed with other medications (nitrates, beta blockers) to stop or prevent a heart attack in people with continuing chest pain when the above procedures cannot be done.
Tirofiban works by preventing platelets in the blood from sticking to each other.
