PLAVIX® HEALTH PROBLEMS
Plavix® is a prescription drug prescribed to help in reducing the risk of heart attack, unstable angina (discomfort or chest pain), stroke, and cardiovascular death in patients with cardiovascular disease. Plavix (also known as clopidogrel) works by decreasing the activity of blood cells called platelets, by making platelets less likely to form blood clots.
Unfortunately, for many patients, taking Plavix can result in internal bleeding, stomach ulcers, and stomach damage.
Is Plavix dangerous?
The link between Plavix and internal bleeding is well documented, especially when used in combination with other drugs. The New York Times and The New England Journal of Medicine report patients using Plavix experience more than 12 times as many ulcers as patients who take aspirin and a heartburn pill.
