Depends: It depends on the indication. Usually if prescribed post stroke, one stays on clopidogrel indefinitely unless there are severe side effects.

Is rivaroxaban xalerto safe and good drug for preventing stroke in Afib compared to aspirin and plavix (clopidogrel) together in72 yr man with hypertension,s.cr1.56?

All studies have concluded that the benefit from anticoagulation significantly exceeds the risks for almost all AF patients with a score of 2 or more. Xalerto will more effectively reduce his risk of stroke and won't increase his risk of bleeding. ...Read more

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
75yr old Taking plavix (clopidogrel)
after stroke consultant said have to
avoid Dark Green Vegetables brussel
sprouts, brocolli what is the true ans?
This makes no sense: This is the 2nd time this has come up in the last few days. The prohibition re these vegetables applies to warfarin, not clopidogrel. They are rich in vitamin K. Warfarin inhibits vitamin K synthesis. Clopidogrel is a platelet inactivator. Its mechanism of action has NOTHING to do with vitamin K. And a "stroke consultant" is saying this? You need to question it and him/her. ...Read more
