Trimetazidine - What is it for

Trimetazidine belongs to the class of medications called fatty acid oxidation inhibitors. It is used to prevent and treat the symptoms of angina (chest pain). Angina is caused by lack of blood supply and oxygen to your heart. Trimetazidine helps to maintain the energy metabolism of heart muscle cells, protecting them from the effects of reduced oxygen supply.

When you take this medication regularly on a long term basis, it can help treat angina by reducing the number of times you get angina.
