Ticlopidine is used to prevent blood clots after a recent heart attack or stroke, and in people with certain disorders of the heart or blood vessels.
Vastarel is used as preventive treatment for angina pectoris episodes. According to Americanheart.org, angina pectoris is the medical term for chest pain due to coronary heart disease. Angina occurs when the heart muscle fails to receive the amount of blood it needs. This usually happens because one or several arteries in the heart are narrowed or blocked. Vastarel is also used in the treatment of vertigo and tinnitus as well as visual disorders with a circulatory origin.
