I learned that having peripheral arterial disease can be a big threat to my heart, so I’m taking steps to protect it.

When the thought of walking through Orlando with my grandkids felt more daunting than exciting, I knew it was time to finally quit smoking for good and speak to my doctor about my leg problems. I was diagnosed with PAD, and learned that it increases my risk for heart attack and stroke. I never would have thought my leg pain could be so dangerous. Speaking up about my PAD symptoms led my doctor to prescribe ZONTIVITY with aspirin to help reduce my cardiovascular risk.

I don’t want
a heart attack to define my future.

Having a heart attack was the scariest thing I’ve ever experienced. I never want to put myself or my family through that again, but I know I’m now at a much higher risk of having another one. The road to recovery will be long, and my diabetes won’t make it easy. To help lower my risk of having another heart attack or a stroke, my doctor prescribed ZONTIVITY with aspirin and Plavix®.

Indication

ZONTIVITY is a prescription medicine used to treat people who have

  • had a heart attack or
  • reduced blood flow in their legs (peripheral arterial disease).
Important Safety Information

ZONTIVITY is used with aspirin, with clopidogrel (Plavix®), or with aspirin and clopidogrel to lower your chance of having another serious problem with your heart or blood vessels, such as heart attack, stroke, or death but ZONTIVITY (and similar drugs) can cause bleeding that can be serious and lead to death.

While you take ZONTIVITY and for about 4 weeks after your treatment with ZONTIVITY is stopped:

  • you may bruise and bleed more easily (nose bleeds may be common)
  • it will take longer than usual for any bleeding to stop.

Call your doctor right away if you have any of these signs or symptoms of bleeding while taking ZONTIVITY:

  • bleeding that is severe or that you cannot control
  • pink, red, or brown urine
  • vomiting blood or your vomit looks like "coffee grounds"
  • red or black stools (looks like tar)
  • coughing up blood or blood clots.

Do not take ZONTIVITY if you:

  • have had a stroke or "mini stroke" (also known as transient ischemic attack or TIA)
  • have had bleeding in your brain
  • currently have unusual bleeding, such as bleeding in your head, stomach or intestines (an ulcer).

If you have a stroke, TIA, or bleeding in your brain while taking ZONTIVITY your doctor should stop your treatment with ZONTIVITY. Follow your doctor's instructions about stopping ZONTIVITY.

Take ZONTIVITY exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Do not stop taking ZONTIVITY without first talking to the doctor who prescribed it for you.

Before you take ZONTIVITY, tell your doctor if you:

  • have had bleeding problems or history of stomach ulcers
  • have had a stroke or “mini-stroke” (also known as transient ischemic attack or TIA)
  • have had bleeding (hemorrhage) in your brain
  • have had any recent serious injury or surgery
  • plan to have surgery or a dental procedure
  • have kidney problems or severe liver problems
  • are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. It is not known if ZONTIVITY will harm your unborn baby.
  • are breastfeeding or plan to breastfeed. It is not known if ZONTIVITY passes into your breast milk. You and your doctor should decide if you will take ZONTIVITY or breastfeed. You should not do both.

Tell all of your doctors and dentists that you are taking ZONTIVITY with aspirin, with clopidogrel (Plavix®), or with aspirin and clopidogrel. They should talk to the doctor who prescribed ZONTIVITY for you before you have any surgery or dental procedure.

The possible side effects of ZONTIVITY include:

  • Anemia (low level of red blood cells)
  • Depression
  • Rash

These are not all the possible side effects of ZONTIVITY.

Tell your doctor about all the medicines you take, including prescription and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, dietary or herbal supplements. Taking ZONTIVITY with certain other medicines may increase your risk of bleeding and may affect how ZONTIVITY works.
