Name brand plavix didnt cause me this pain but soon as I switch to the new gentric I started having stomach and chest pains

Usually there is no difference between the generic & branded med, as a general side effect Plavix does effect the stomach in about 5.2% of the people who take this med.
Maybe you could seek medical advice from the doc who prescribed the generic plavix.
Take care, best wishes!

Generally speaking about generics, & yes, I am aware that plavix just becme a generic as my husbnd also take it due to his many heart related problems. He takes plavix & tends to bleed & bruise quite frequently. It could be just a coincidence that you are now having these problems, but it never hurts to give your cadiologist a call & get his/her opinion. Sometimes pain in the stomach or bleeding can be the symptoms of further heart coditions going on.
This could be an early warning sign of a heart attack, so please go to the neareet hopital & get this checked out ASAP! Since it has been 7 hours since you posted your question, I am of the opinion that you should always be on the side of caution with any heart related question. We are not doctors, but simply put, a bunch of peers, withy similar problems & give advice by our exoerience.. Plesa? Give your heart doctor a call or have someone get you to the nearest ER ASAP...
