Data still coming in: To date most information favors Eliquis over Plavix (clopidogrel) in several studies mainly having to do with atrial fibrillation. Data on your particular situation is not really available yet partly because we have to test Eliquis with DES to see if there are any problems. Keep watching as I am sure if Eliquis proves out you may be able to switch in future
