Torrent Pharmaceuticals is a world class manufacturer of generic drugs and Global Pharmacy Plus is confident you will appreciate the savings you will realize, compared to purchasing brand name Effient from your local pharmacy. Also known as Efient in European Union and Prasita in India. Prasugrel is used along with aspirin to prevent serious or life-threatening problems with the heart and blood vessels in people who have had a heart attack or severe chest pain and have been treated with angioplasty (procedure to open the blood vessels that supply blood to the heart). Prasugrel is in a class of medications called anti-platelet medications.
