What tablets are you asking about? Which medication?

Expert:  Dr. Cooper replied 9 months ago.

Hi there,

You must be on Plavix and Aspirin. If so, yes both of those are used to avoid clots in patients with stent. You will most likely be on them for a year or longer. Hope this helps.

You are right these tablets will help open up the arteries. After you have a stent put in, something called "platelets aggregation" which means that these blood parts that are responsible for causing a clot and blocking arteries can get clogged at the point of where the stent was placed. Hence those anti-platelets such as Plavix and Aspirin are used.

Hope this helps! Please let me know if have any more questions.

what is the work of TRAQIPAM 1mg. will I benefit by using this tablet after the stents have been in.
Expert:  Dr. Cooper replied 9 months ago.

Tranqipam, is a brand name for lorazepam, is used in the treatment of anxiety disorders. Off label it is used for alcohol detoxification; insomnia; partial complex seizures; agitation; and as an adjunct in antiemetic treatment.

In your case, it is most likely to help you stay relaxed to avoid putting stress on the heart.
