TICLID (ticlopidine hcl) is indicated
- to reduce the risk of thrombotic stroke (fatal or nonfatal) in patients who have experienced stroke precursors, and in patients who have had a completed thrombotic stroke. Because TICLID (ticlopidine hcl) is associated with a risk of life-threatening blood dyscrasias including thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP), neutropenia/agranulocytosis and aplastic anemia (see BOXED WARNING and WARNINGS), TICLID (ticlopidine hcl) should be reserved for patients who are intolerant or allergic to aspirin therapy or who have failed aspirin therapy.
- as adjunctive therapy with aspirin to reduce the incidence of subacute stent thrombosis in patients undergoing successful coronary stent implantation (see Clinical Trials).
DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION
Stroke: The recommended dose of TICLID (ticlopidine hcl) is 250 mg bid taken with food. Other doses have not been studied in controlled trials for these indications.
Coronary Artery Stenting: The recommended dose of TICLID (ticlopidine hcl) is 250 mg bid taken with food together with antiplatelet doses of aspirin for up to 30 days of therapy following successful stent implantation.
