Can You Switch From Coumadin To Plavix Instead
It depends: Both Plavix and Coumadin (warfarin) "thin" the blood but do so via different mechanisms and degrees. The choice of one medication over another depends on your underlying condition and specific risk profile. In other words, you would have to discuss with a doctor the specifics of your case. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Parsley tea? is it safe for someone with coronary artery disease, heart attacks(2), and on warfarin and Plavix (clopidogrel) treatments? I have a valve replacement
Probably, but:: Medscape interactions database states: "parsley increases effects of warfarin by pharmacodynamic synergism. Minor or non-significant interaction. Theoretical interaction."

After Heart CABG better use Aspirin 100mg combination warfarin 2mg, or clopidogrel 75mg with warfarin 2mg??
After Heart CABG+ligation LAA, better taken warfarin 2mg + clopidogrel 75mg or rivaroxaban 20mg + clopidogrel 75mg ??
Complex issue: While warfarin has been around longer with an excellent safety record, the new kid on the block, rivaroxaban, also appears to be possibly safer. A major difference, patients don't have to get their blood tests every 7 to 30 days with rivaroxaban. That in itself makes rivaroxaban a nicer alternative. ...Read more
Will clopidogrel (7mg/day) compliment warfarin therapy for patients with CHF with a-fib? Is it really required? +dabigatran?
For a patient who never had bypass, no stent, but had asd closure, a-fib and chf, clopidogrel+warfarin really required?
To clot or bleed?: For a patient in their 30's with history of ASD s/p closure, a-fib and chf, but no cad, dual therapy may be required. Facts such as CHF severity, prior thromoembolic events from a-fib or asd, ventricular clots, and personal & family history of blood clots can help influence the decision to stop or continue dual therapy. Decision is best made by collaboration between cardiology & the ct surgery. ...Read more
