Frequently Asked Questions

What is clopidogrel (Plavix) and how does it work?

Clopidogrel (Plavix) is a preventative antiplatelet drug used to lower the chances of heart attacks or strokes, particularly in patients who have experienced circulatory issues in the past.

Plavix is also used to keep blood vessels open, and help prevent blood clots from forming. It does this by preventing platelets from sticking together in your bloodstream, and keeps blood flowing smoothly through your body. This also stops your blood from coagulating.

Clopidogrel prescriptions are sometimes given in combination with aspirin, to assist with treating new or worsening chest pain in patients.

What are the uses for clopidogrel (Plavix)?

Clopidogrel (Plavix) is usually given to people who have recently had a heart attack, a stroke or have circulation problems, such as peripheral vascular disease (blood circulation disease).

Plavix prescriptions may also be given in combination with aspirin to treat new or worsening chest pain in patients.

How do you use clopidogrel (Plavix)?

Clopidogrel prescriptions are given in the form of tablet or capsules, and taken by mouth. Usually, it’s taken once a day, with or without food.

Dosage and frequency of use will depend on your medical condition and the length of your treatment. Always follow the directions and dosages prescribed by your doctor to avoid any unnecessary risks.

Sometimes Plavix prescriptions are given in combination with aspirin. Only take aspirin with Plavix if instructed by your doctor, since it can increase your risk of some side effects.

What are the side effects and risks of clopidogrel (Plavix)?

Common side effects while using clopidogrel (Plavix) include:

  • Easy bruising or bleeding
  • Stomach pain
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • Pale skin
  • Jaundice (skin turning yellow)
  • Headache
  • Fever
  • Weakness

Because clopidogrel prescriptions prevent your blood from coagulating (clotting), even minor injuries can become serious or life-threatening.

If you've been taking clopidogrel and have an injury that will not stop bleeding, you should contact your doctor right away or seek immediate medical attention.

Who should not take clopidogrel (Plavix)?

If you're considering getting a Plavix prescription, you should always talk to a doctor about your past medical history before starting your treatment.

You could be more likely to experience negative side effects from taking Plavix if you have:

  • A history of bleeding conditions (stomach ulcers, bleeding in your eyes/brain)
  • Experienced a recent serious injury or trauma, which is still healing
  • Liver disease
  • A blood disease like Hemophilia (unable to naturally form blood clots)

Also, clopidogrel should never be taken with alcohol, since it can increase your risk of stomach or intestinal bleeding.
You should always take extra care while shaving, brushing your teeth or performing any activity that could cause even minor bleeding.

Pregnant women should talk to their doctors if they are taking clopidogrel close to their due date. It’s not harmful to the baby, but could cause additional bleeding in the mother during birth.

If you have any questions about the medication, you can speak to a doctor on Maple by registering for an account.
