It depends on how bad the bruising is. I personally would never stop taking plavix unless my doctor told me it was ok. Any of the blood thinners may cause bruising but I was told that it is not serious and is to be expected. The benefits of taking plavix outweigh the side effects for most people. Please, please check with your doctor before going off plavix and talk to him/her about the bruising.
