I recently had stents implanted (also had 2 in 2004 and have been on Plavix since) but my new physician changed me to Effient and I am waiting on a mail order prescription service.
depending on the reasons why you had stents implanted and the medications your currently taking, you really need to ask your cardiologist that question, there must have been a reason he/she switched it. Ive been told by clients (im in homecare 20 yrs now) that effient is more tolerable. you really need to be protected for a year after your stent , so i would ask tomorrow am, i know its sunday, tough, there is someone on call always, so make the call,tell the answering party what you need to know and your doctor (or on call) will get back to you. or have the service reach you. good luck
