What has NICE said?

Prasugrel 10 mg is recommended as a possible treatment for adults with acute coronary syndrome who are having percutaneous coronary intervention.

What does this mean for me?

If you have acute coronary syndrome and are having a procedure called percutaneous coronary intervention, and your doctor thinks that prasugrel is the right treatment, you should be able to have prasugrel on the NHS.

People taking prasugrel should also take aspirin daily.

Prasugrel should be available on the NHS within 3 months of the guidance being issued.
