oeillist; It's up to the dose and the doctor just make sure you tell them you were on this so they can give you something like if it were a emergency to reverse the effect of the blood thinner this you well have to ask your doctor. Chuck1957

If a patient is to undergo surgery and an antiplatelet effect is not desired, discontinue Plavix five days prior to surgery. this is true in most cases but not all Chuck1957
