I'm on Weight Watchers and my cardiologist stopped my Plavix 3 weeks ago. I had lost 49.4 #s in a year but in the last 3 weeks, I've gained 5 #s! It's so depressing - I can't stop crying! Is stopping the Plavix doing this? How long does it take to get out of your system? This is so upsetting! Sue
Can you gain weight after stopping Plavix?
Just to clarify - Plavix didn't cause any weight gain for me - going OFF Plavix caused the weight gain. This may sound dumb (I apologize! (-: ) but do you think thicker blood weighs more? And could the difference be 5#s on the scale?
Plavix doesn't cause weight gain, what you maybe suffering from is edema, are you taking any diuretic's. You may need to have your doctor increase to dose.
