Plavix And Eating Dark Green Leafy Vegetables
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

Half life of plavix 300 mg. Procedure cancelled. How much plavix to give after rescheduled proc 24 hours later?
Plavix: Since plavix' effect on platelets can last up to 10 days, the dose on resumption depends upon how long it was discontinued preoproperatively.

Bleeding, like other: Anti-clotting agents. Plavix, clopidogrel, inhibits platelets (cell fragments from megakaryocytes within the bone marrow & are usually the first to initiate the blood to clot) 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. ...Read more
Plavix (clopidogrel): Won't be affected by vit k.Get a more detailed answer ›
Very controversial: Answer depends upon how you interpret evidence. Kind of like blind men & elephant.

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
