My husband takes plavix as well as lasinapril, aspirin, etc and i can say YES he dose bruise very easy. Unfortunately I do not know which of these meds cause the bruising. He had a major heart attack w/high cholesterol 2.8 yrs ago and his cholesterol is now extremely low thanks to the meds and a very low fat diet & cardio work out 3-4 times a week. We changed our lifestyle immedately as we are in our early 50iest. I hope this has been of some help..Good Health & God Bless p/s there is always great hope so pls do not give up no matter what!

Yes, because it is an anti-platelet. This means that it stops your blood cells from bonding together and forming clots, clots are what stop blood pooling under the skin causing bruises. You will just have to be more careful, like I am. But in time you will see less of them.
