Brilique 90mg Tablets – Ticagrelor, 56 Tablets

If you’ve recently suffered a heart attack or unstable angina, your doctor has likely prescribed Brilique 90mg Tablets in combination with aspirin. This powerful antiplatelet medicine can help reduce your risk of another heart attack, stroke, or other serious cardiovascular events.

Brilique works by inhibiting the activity of the P2Y12 receptor, which plays a key role in blood clotting. By keeping this receptor from becoming activated, Brilique helps to prevent dangerous clots from forming. This can protect you from suffering another potentially deadly heart attack or stroke.

In addition to its life-saving benefits, Brilique is also easy to take and well-tolerated by most patients.

What Brilique is used for

Brilique in combination with acetylsalicylic acid (another antiplatelet agent) is to be used in adults only. You have been given this medicine because you have had:

  • a heart attack, or
  • unstable angina (angina or chest pain that is not well controlled).

It reduces the chances of you having another heart attack, stroke or dying from a disease related to your heart or blood vessels.

How Brilique works

Brilique affects cells called ‘platelets’ (also called thrombocytes). These very small blood cells help stop bleeding by clumping together to plug tiny holes in blood vessels that are cut or damaged.

However, platelets can also form clots inside diseased blood vessels in the heart and brain. This can be very dangerous because:

  • the clot can cut off the blood supply completely; this can cause a heart attack (myocardial infarction) or stroke, or
  • the clot can partly block the blood vessels to the heart; this reduces the blood flow to the heart and can cause chest pain which comes and goes (called ‘unstable angina’).

Brilique helps stop the clumping of platelets. This reduces the chance of a blood clot forming that can reduce blood flow.

If you are pregnant or breast-feeding, think you may be pregnant or are planning to have a baby, ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice before taking this medicine

How to Use

How to use Brilique 90mg Tablets

Always take this medicine exactly as your doctor has told you. Check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure.

How much to take

  • The starting dose is two tablets at the same time (loading dose of 180 mg). This dose will usually be given to you in the hospital.
  • After this starting dose, the usual dose is one tablet of 90 mg twice a day for up to 12 months unless your doctor tells you differently.
  • Take this medicine around the same time every day (for example, one tablet in the morning and one in the evening).


Taking Brilique with other medicines for blood clotting

Your doctor will usually also tell you to take acetylsalicylic acid. This is a substance present in many medicines used to prevent blood clotting. Your doctor will tell you how much to take (usually between 75-150 mg daily).

How to take Brilique

  • You can take the tablet with or without food.
  • You can check when you last took a tablet of Brilique by looking on the blister. There is a sun (for the morning) and a moon (for the evening). This will tell you whether you have taken the dose.


If you have trouble swallowing the tablet

If you have trouble swallowing the tablet you can crush it and mix with water as follows:

  • Crush the tablet to a fine powder.
  • Pour the powder into half a glass of water.
  • Stir and drink immediately.
  • To make sure there is no medicine left, rinse the empty glass with another half a glass of water and drink it.


If you are in the hospital you may be given this tablet mixed with some water and given through a tube via the nose (nasogastric tube).

If you take more Brilique than you should

If you take more Brilique than you should, talk to a doctor or go to hospital straight away. Take the medicine pack with you. You may be at increased risk of bleeding.

If you forget to take Brilique

  • If you forget to take a dose, just take your next dose as normal.
  • Do not take a double dose (two doses at the same time) to make up for the forgotten dose.


If you stop taking Brilique

Do not stop taking Brilique without talking to your doctor. Take this medicine on a regular basis and for as long as your doctor keeps prescribing it. If you stop taking Brilique, it may increase your chances of having another heart attack or stroke or dying from a disease related to your heart or blood vessels.

If you have any further questions on the use of this medicine, ask your doctor or pharmacist.
