Gerd and taking plavix (clopidogrel) what helps?

1 doctor answer
Dr. Peter Will
Specializes in Cardiology
Side effect: It is better not to take some other medication to counteract side effects of another. Gerd and GI upsets can be a side effect of clopidogrel. It depends how long you have been taking it. If you have been taking it for a long time and this problem is new then it may not be the clopidogrel.

Unlikely: Plavix (clopidogrel) does not cause such acidity symptoms but acid refux can be the reason for your symptoms.
