Heart disease is a chronic condition. It's important to take good care of your heart for the rest of your life. Stent procedures and medications alone do not cure heart disease, but staying on the medications prescribed by your doctor, such as Effient® (prasugrel), is important. Your doctor will decide how long you should stay on Effient. Talk to the doctor who prescribed Effient to you before you stop taking it, even if directed to do so by another physician, dentist or pharmacist.

Scheduling regular checkup visits with your doctor and living a healthy lifestyle are also key components of your care.
