There may be options: Plavix (clopidogrel) is a platelet inhibiting drug. The purpose of the medication is prevention of future myocardial infarction and death following acute coronary syndromes and prevention of stent thrombosis. There are other medications besides Plavix (clopidogrel) that are platelet inhibitors
