Effient Storage and Safety Information
Store Effient at room temperature away from extreme heat and moisture. Keep the tablets in their container, along with the mineral-absorbing packet. Always keep the lid tightly closed when not in use.
Taking Effient can make it easier to bleed and harder to stop the bleeding, even from minor injuries. Take precautions, and be sure to see your doctor immediately if you have any bleeding that won’t stop. Avoid any activities that may increase your risk of injury. This includes minor daily activities, such as shaving or brushing your teeth.
Using any NSAID in combination with Effient may cause you to bruise or bleed more easily. If you take any NSAID for pain, arthritis, fever, or swelling, talk to your doctor about whether or not Effient is right for you.
Effient is not recommended for patients 75 years of age or older, except in high-risk situations.
Because Effient is usually given with aspirin, it should not be taken by patients who are pregnant, as the aspirin can cause bleeding when taking in the last trimester of pregnancy. Aspirin can also cause unwanted side effects in a newborn baby.
Do not stop taking this medication without your doctor’s approval. Stopping this medicine too soon can cause life-threatening medical issues, such as blood clots, heart attack, or stroke.
