I have had two episodes of blood clots in both lungs and both legs. Would Plavix keep this from happening again?
Possibly - but you would need to talk with your doctor to see if Plavix is the right preventative treatment for you.
Plavix (clopidogrel) keeps the platelets in your blood from coagulating (clotting) to prevent unwanted blood clots that can occur with certain heart or blood vessel conditions.
Plavix is used to prevent blood clots after a recent heart attack or stroke, and in people with certain disorders of the heart or blood vessels.

- Plavix Information for Healthcare Professionals (includes dosage details)
