If you come off of the Plavix to soon, you could have a heart attack, or a blood clot form at your implanted stent or the worst case is you die.
What would happen is that whatever the reason the dr ordered it may still be a problem without the med.
Please let your doctor know before stopping Plavix.
It is fine to stop taking Plavix suddenly ... you don't need to taper down the dose.
