No Plavix is an anti-platelet and Praxada is a blood thinner like Warferin but you don't have to do the weekly testing when taking it. It works for people with Arterial Fibulation. That is why people with valve replacements and stents shouldn't take it because clots can form on the valve or stent and it shouldn't be given to heart patients.

No. Plavix is for Acute coronary syndrome (ACS) & recent MI, recent stroke, or established peripheral arterial disease. Pradaxa is used for non-valvular atrial fibrillation & in some cases DVT & PE.
