What is Clopidogrel?

Clopidogrel is a prescriptional, antiplatelet medication, commonly known as blood thinners. It is mainly used to prevent or lower the risk of blood clots, heart attack, stroke, or peripheral artery disease (a condition with poor blood circulation). It may be prescribed alone or in combination with other drugs for the same.

Uses

Clopidogrel belongs to the category of antiplatelet medications. Platelets are a type of blood cell, which clump together and help to form a clot. In adults, when a blood clot is formed inside the arteries, it blocks the blood flow, which may result in stroke, heart attack, or death. Clopidogrel prevents or reduces the chances of such blood clots. Clopidogrel can be prescribed for the following conditions;

  • Atherosclerosis (hardening of arteries when fat, cholesterol, and other substances block the wall of arteries)

  • Heart attack or stroke or severe chest pain

  • Peripheral artery disease (a condition with poor blood circulation)

  • Atrial fibrillation (irregular heartbeat)

Clopidogrel is also used during various heart procedures and surgeries, such as coronary artery bypass grafting and percutaneous coronary intervention, to prevent the risk of clot formation.

The medication may be prescribed for other uses; ask your physician or pharmacist for detailed information.

Directions for use

  • Take this medicine orally once a day with or without food or as prescribed by your physician.

  • Take this tablet daily at the same time.

  • Follow all the instructions on the prescription label.

  • Do not stop taking this medication abruptly without consulting your doctor.

  • Do not take it more or less or take it more than often than prescribed by your doctor

  • Do not stop using it even if you feel well

If You Miss the Dose

  • If you happen to miss a dose of Clopidogrel, take the missed dose as soon as you remember.

  • However, if it is almost time for the next dose, do not take the missed dose and continue with your next scheduled dose.

  • Do not take a double dose to compensate for the missed dose.
