I had cardiac stents inserted and was prescribed plavix and later effient both made me feel bad--- sour stomich, musicel ache, back pain, weak feelings & etc. I have heard that nattokinase(from soy) will do the same job.

Here is a link to read about nattokinase:
Along with another substance called pycnogenol, the nattokinase is supposedly able to reduce clotting. Whether it is enough the guard against this, I can't answer. Its mode of action is different than Plavix though the end result may be the same. I would consult your doctor before taking this product.
