Two years ago I had two heart attacks and a stroke. My Dr. installed a stent into my LAD when it closed 100% on the cath lab table. He told me to take Plavix for the rest of my life but I am no longer able to get it from the Veterans Administration. They want to substitute Persantine/aspirin. What is the difference in these two drugs other than Plavix being a newer drug?
