My senior citizen mother has a pacemaker and 2 stents and was taking plavix without any issues... Unfortunately when my mother's cardiologist retired and she was forced to find a new one the new doctor told her to discontinue Plavix and placed her immediately on Pradaxa. She is looking to switch doctors and go back to Plavix. Is anyone aware if this is possible? Are there risks to stop Pradaxa and return to Plavix? Appreciate any assistance you might provide.
