Or, is it standard procedure to discontinue after 2 years?
My husband was taken off Plavix 6 months after his heart attack and stent placement. The cardiologist has him on Aspirin 81mg 1 daily and he has been fine for 4 years so far and even has done better each year they repeat his stress test. Hope this reassures you some. Always follow the cardiologists suggestions they are the ones who know best and they are there to help you.
