    Aspirin Aspirin (also called acetyl salicylic acid, ASA) is an analgesic agent, used to relieve moderate to severe pain, such as headache, migraine, nerve pain, toothache, sore throat, joint pain, dysmenorrhea (pain during periods) and heart attack. It is also used as a blood thinner in heart diseases and stroke. Clopidogrel Clopidogrel is used to prevent blood from clotting. Clopidogrel is beneficial in the prevention of heart attack and stroke, and relieve chest pain.

    Mode of drug action


    Acetylsalicylic acid Acetylsalicylic acid blocks the cyclooxygenase enzyme, which decreases the production of two chemicals- prostaglandins and thromboxanes. Low levels of prostaglandin bring about pain relief. Low thromboxane levels results in thinning of blood, therefore, its long-term use helps to prevent heart attack and stroke. Clopidogrel Clopidogrel is an anti-platelet drug. The drug works by preventing platelets (a type of blood cells) from aggregating, thereby, preventing the formation of blood clots. Clopidogrel is also known as a blood-thinning agent as it keeps the blood thin enough to flow smoothly through the blood vessels.
