Mode of Action of Zosprin 75 MG
How Does It Work?
- Zosprin is an antiplatelet medicine. It inhibits the action of an enzyme, which makes platelets aggregate together to form a blood clot. When clot formation occurs in blood vessels, blood flow is obstructed or blocked, which is dangerous in cases of heart attack and leads to stroke or chest pain (angina)....
- Aspirin in low doses stops these platelets from clumping together to form a clot so that blood flows without obstruction in the arteries.
