Plavix How to Take

Plavix (Clopidogrel) belongs to the class of medications called platelet aggregation inhibitors or antiplatelets. Plavix (Clopidogrel) is used to help prevent heart attacks, strokes, and other circulation problems for people who have atherosclerosis (narrowed blood vessels caused by "hardening of the arteries") and have already experienced at least one atherothrombotic event such as Heart Attack or Stroke, or have been diagnosed with peripheral arterial disease (problems with blood flow in the arteries). It is also used with Asa (acetylsalicylic acid) by people with acute coronary syndrome or atrial fibrillation (a fast, irregular heartbeat) to reduce the risk of heart attack or stroke.

Normally, platelets help the blood to clot when needed, such as after an injury. When arteries become narrowed by fat deposits (plaques), platelets often clump together in the vessels. Unstable plaques can rupture, leading to additional platelet clumping that can cause a larger blockage of the artery. This further narrows the arteries and increases the chances of heart attack, stroke, or other circulation problems. Plavix (Clopidogrel) reduces the chances of these events by preventing platelets from forming into clumps.

Plavix (Clopidogrel) may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Plavix (Clopidogrel) may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Plavix (Clopidogrel) may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Plavix (Clopidogrel) for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Plavix (Clopidogrel), speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Plavix (Clopidogrel) without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Plavix (Clopidogrel) to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take Plavix (Clopidogrel) if their doctor has not prescribed it.
