PRODUCT INTRODUCTION

Actilyse 50mg Injection is a medicine which dissolves the clots that have formed in blood vessels. It is used to treat stroke, heart attack, and pulmonary embolism (blood clots in the lungs). It is known as a thrombolytic or “clot-busting” medicine.

Actilyse 50mg Injection is given directly into a vein by a doctor as soon as possible after the first signs of a heart attack, stroke, or pulmonary embolism are noticed. Your breathing, blood pressure, oxygen levels and other vital signs will be watched closely. You may be given another medicine to prevent the formation of new blood clots at the same time or after the treatment.

This medicine is not suitable for everyone. There is a long list of situations where you will not be given Actilyse 50mg Injection including if you have had a head injury, surgery of your brain or spinal cord, and any current bleeding anywhere in your body.

BENEFITS OF ACTILYSE INJECTION

In Treatment of Heart attack

Actilyse 50mg Injection dissolves harmful blood clots that cause heart attack (if they are in the heart). They also dissolve clots that form in other blood vessels. This means that blood can again start to flow freely through your body. This medicine will, therefore, reduce both the damage caused by, and the risk of dying from a heart attack. The sooner the injection is given, the greater are the chances of recovery.

In Treatment of Ischemic stroke

Actilyse 50mg Injection is sometimes called a “clot-buster” because it dissolves harmful blood clots that cause strokes (if they are in the brain). This helps the blood flow freely around your body thereby reducing the damage caused by and the future risk of stroke. It should be given as soon as possible after the onset of stroke.

In Treatment of Pulmonary embolism

Pulmonary embolism refers to clotting of blood in your lungs. Actilyse 50mg Injection prevents this clot formation in your lungs. This helps the blood flow freely around your body thereby preventing a heart attack or stroke. It prevents the formation of blood clots and also prevents the existing ones from growing bigger in size. Make appropriate lifestyle changes (such as eating healthy and staying active) to maximize the effectiveness of this medicine. Follow your doctor’s instructions carefully to get maximum benefit.
