What is the most important information I should know about ticlopidine (Ticlid)?
You should not use this medication if you are allergic to ticlopidine, or if you have severe liver disease, any active bleeding such as a stomach ulcer or bleeding in the brain (such as from a head injury), or a blood cell disorder such as anemia (lack of red blood cells) or low levels of platelets (cells that help your blood clot).
Before taking ticlopidine, tell your doctor if you have a bleeding or blood clotting disorder, a history of stroke, including TIA ("mini-stroke"), a stomach ulcer or ulcerative colitis, high cholesterol or triglycerides, liver disease, or kidney disease.
Because ticlopidine keeps your blood from coagulating (clotting) to prevent unwanted blood clots, it can also make it easier for you to bleed, even from a minor injury. Contact your doctor or seek emergency medical attention if you have bleeding that will not stop.
If you need to have any type of surgery, tell the surgeon ahead of time that you are using ticlopidine.
Taking ticlopidine with certain other drugs can increase your risk of bleeding. Before taking ticlopidine, tell your doctor about all other medications you use.
