Everyone knows that the state of blood affects the state of a person more than the state of its other organs. Therefore, it is necessary to constantly monitor its biochemistry and clotting, and sometimes preventive measures in the form of a healthy diet are not enough, and antiplatelet drugs come into play. In this group, the most well-known "Trombot ACC" and "Cardiomagnyl". What drug to prefer? Or maybe both drugs do not justify their cost and need to be replaced?
"Thromboass": the main characteristics of the drug
This drug is included in the category of antiplatelet agents - agents that reduce the rate of blood coagulation, which in turn acts as a prevention of thrombosis. The result is determined by the ability of the active component to inhibit the synthesis of thromboxane A2: the concentration of this element and its derivatives (metabolites) is reduced by more than 90%.
- The active ingredient "Thrombotic ACCA" is acetylsallicylic acid, whose dosage per tablet is 100 mg. To achieve the above effect (to reduce the concentration of thromboxane), it is enough to get half to 50 mg of the active substance.
Additional and less pronounced properties of the drug is to lower the temperature, relieve pain and reduce the inflammatory process that provokes these symptoms. Indications for the use of "Thrombotic ACC" are:
- prevention of heart attack (both primary and secondary);
- improvement of cerebral circulation in ischemic heart disease;
- prevention of thrombosis and / or embolism (including an increased risk of their occurrence after surgery).
This medication is considered quite mild for the body, especially for persons with sensitive stomachs: the shell of tablets is resistant to gastric juice and begins to disintegrate only in the intestine. However, this does not reduce the list of adverse reactions and contraindications to the drug.
- "Thrombotic Acc" is prohibited in ulcerative lesions of the digestive tract, hypothrombinemia, hemophilia, increased bleeding, nephrolithiasis;
- The drug is allowed only in persons older than 18 years, and is also not allowed to be included in therapy in nursing mothers.
It is noteworthy that during pregnancy, "Thrombotic ACC" is allowed in I and II trimesters, however, it is used solo and should not be combined with other drugs. In particular, with hypoglycemic, diuretic drugs, glucocorticoids, anticoagulants.
- There may be adverse reactions from the digestive and reproductive systems (menstrual disorders, dyspeptic disorders), as well as iron deficiency anemia, bronchospasms, dizziness.
The drug should be carefully administered in the treatment of persons with renal and hepatic insufficiency.
Consumer reviews about the drug
As can be judged by the comments of ordinary patients, the drug, when used correctly, does not harm the body, and the adverse reactions to it are almost not fixed. Given the low cost, it can be a salvation for most people suffering from blood density.
- Tatyana:"I received a recommendation for treating Thrombotic ACC from a gynecologist who has been observing for quite a long time. Saw according to instructions: 1 full pill at bedtime for 14 days, which began to affect already by the end of the first week - fingers and toes stopped numb, and The menstrual cycle that came after this was less painful. Analyzes performed after treatment showed a significant decrease in blood viscosity. "
- Yuliya:"Mom has been taking Thrombos ACS for 4 years, at the insistence of the doctor: after a heart attack, it was decided to carry out maintenance therapy. She was afraid for her because of the high sensitivity of the body and a large number of contraindications and possible adverse reactions, but over the years there was no deterioration of well-being precisely because of the pill. "
When should I take Cardiomagnyl?
This drug also belongs to the group of antiplatelet agents, however, it has a wider spectrum of action due to some changes in its chemical composition. "Cardiomagnyl" is available in pill format labeled 75 or 150.-
- The active active ingredient - acetylsallicylic acid - works in tandem with magnesium hydroxide, which allows the drug to affect not only the viscosity of the blood, but also the state of the heart muscle. In addition, magnesium becomes an additional factor in the protection of the mucous membrane of the digestive tract, reducing the likelihood of a negative effect of the main active ingredient on the state of the stomach.
- The manufacturer offers several dosage options for acetylsallicylic acid and magnesium: 75 mg + 15.2 mg per tablet, or 150 mg + 30.39 mg, respectively. For the most significant substance, a label is put on the packaging - 75 or 150.
Indications for the use of "Cardiomagnyl" are the following situations:
- prevention of heart attack (at any stage);
- prevention of embolism and thrombosis;
- heart surgery;
- angina pectoris;
- acute heart failure.
At the same time there are a large number of contraindications, including increased bleeding, including internal bleeding, ulcers, renal and hepatic failure. It is forbidden to use "Cardiomagnyl" during the first and third trimesters of pregnancy and during breastfeeding, since acetylsalicylic acid is passed on to milk. The drug is prohibited to persons under 18 years of age.
- It is not allowed to combine "Cardiomagnyl" with methotrexates, anticoagulants, hypoglycemic agents, digoxin, valproic acid.
The side effects of taking the drug are fixed by the nervous, digestive and respiratory systems, as well as functions of blood formation and anaphylactic reactions.
What do users say about the drug?
Taking into account the fact that magnesium necessary for the heart has been added to the drug, according to the manufacturer’s assertions working as an additional protection, Cardiomagnyl should be perceived extremely positively. Judging by the comments of consumers, it has flaws, although the tool itself is more well-known and more popular than the “Thrombone ASS”.
- Catherine:"Cardiomagnyl saw during pregnancy, when there was a risk of varicose veins. The course lasted a month, the condition really improved, although doubts about the permissibility of this drug before birth were. Later they were justified - as it turned out, acetylsallicylic acid adversely affects cervical dilation. As a result, give birth in a natural way did not work out, I had to do a cesarean. "
- Olga:I didn’t get Cardio-Magnetic on the advice of a friend who saw him and was convinced that I didn’t bring myself to good treatment. I decided to strengthen my heart, which began to naughty, and I started to frighten my cold toes all the time. which had to be canceled: the pain in the stomach intensified daily and disappeared only a few days after stopping the therapy and changing the diet. One pleases - the blood circulation in the limbs has improved, but now I will choose something more compatible with my the stomach. "
Which is better - "Tromboass" or "Cardiomagnyl"?
Analyzing the composition of each drug, it can be argued that "Thrombone ACC" and "Cardiomagnyl" are almost identical to each other: they have the same indications for use and even adverse reactions, contraindications are also not too different. In favor of "Cardiomagnyl" says only that, in theory, it should be safer for people with sensitive gastrointestinal tract, and also allows you to choose a better dosage without dividing the tablet - 75 or 150 mg of the active substance.
According to reviews, the addition of magnesium had virtually no effect on the drug, and the result from taking any of them is the same, as well as the likelihood of adverse reactions. Thus, it turns out that the cost of "Cardiomagnyl" is unjustifiably overestimated in comparison with "Thrombotic Ass", especially there is to pay attention to the fact that the basis of each of the medications is penny acetylsallicylic acid.
As a result, the best drug is difficult to select - they are absolutely equal, and both work clearly according to the promises of the manufacturer. But if we talk about a reasonable price-quality ratio, we should prefer "Thrombone ASS", because there is no sense to overpay for the same means, but with a different name.
