What is Plavix (clopidogrel) used for?

What is Plavix (clopidogrel) used for?

↓ Blood Clotting: Plavix (clopidogrel) inhibits platelets (usually the first step in blood clotting) from becoming activated: sticking to tissue, attracting other platelets to stick & activating the 12 clotting proteins (which act in a chain reaction) to form thrombin which polymerizes & ties everything together into clots. Plavix (clopidogrel) has no affect on blood viscosity; it is an anti-coagulant; it does not thin blood viscosity. ...Read more

Is virectin safe if i, m taking heart medication? (coreg, plavix, zocor, (simvastatin) and benicar)

Is virectin safe if i, m taking heart medication? (coreg, plavix, zocor, (simvastatin) and benicar)

Web site: I visited the virectin web site: it's nauseating marketing of half naked women and grinning men. The ingredients are a mish-mash of common vitamins and minerals plus some herbal items that are not fda approved or regulated. Bottom line: no one can say with confidence that, with your heart issues, this is safe. Controlled studies haven't been ; never will be done. "let the buyer beware!". ...Read more

Most people could but when on medications like Plavix, (clopidogrel) it's better to discuss any new medication or supplement with your doctor including all OTC meds. ...Read more

After Heart CABG+ligation LAA, better taken warfarin 2mg + clopidogrel 75mg or rivaroxaban 20mg + clopidogrel 75mg ??

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

Any interactions plaquenil methotrexate motrin800 Tylenol500 folic acid prilosec aspirin lopressor cartia imdur ambian singulair  xyzal (levocetirizine) melatonin ?

Too many: You are taking so many drugs that it is difficult to tell whether drug interaction may occur. Even if you run a profile in Epocrates , it is impossible to tell whether a combination with another drug may lead to interaction. Thus you will require close monitoring by your doctor and be on the lookout for any adverse effects. ...Read more

Which is better for strokes: plavix (clopidogrel) or aggrenox?

Which is better for strokes: plavix (clopidogrel) or aggrenox?

Depends: Studies have been done comparing the two. Aggrenox seems superior in preventing recurrent stroke or tia's, but Plavix (clopidogrel) has more research on heart disease and periph vasc problems. Plavix (clopidogrel) is generic now and cheaper, but doesn't work well in pts with certain genetics, and interacts adversely with some ulcer drugs. Aggrenox has aspirin, which may be a problem with some. ...Read more

After Heart CABG better use Aspirin 100mg combination warfarin 2mg, or clopidogrel 75mg with warfarin 2mg??

Prob aspirin : It seems you may have a fib. So warfarin is important. The use of plavix (clopidogrel) is valuable after PTCA, but not proven to be any better than aspirin. Therefore, I suggest aspirin and warfarin would be better choice. ...Read more

I take clonidine troprol XL lisinipril & celebrex (celecoxib) is this safe?

I take clonidine  troprol XL  lisinipril & celebrex (celecoxib)  is this safe?

With the exception: Of the innate side effects in each medication, and as long as your blood pressure is not too low, then it is a pretty safe mix as they do not work on the same receptors and shouldn't overlap. That being said, the one possible problem is taking an NSAID (celebrex) and lisinopril, you can cause kidney damage as one shuts down efferent and one afferent arteries to glomeruli. Be cautious. ...Read more
