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.
What would happen is that whatever the reason the dr ordered it may still be a problem without the med.
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.
