Plavix (clopidogrel) for Heart Attack: "I had a heart attack in June 2017, Angioplasty with one stent also, have been on much medication including Plavix since. Why was Plavix recently discontinued 'cold turkey'. I am feeling ok but very dizzy, but I am a very old person."

Plavix (clopidogrel) for Ischemic Stroke: "Small stroke: Only medicine I was on after Patent Foramen Ovale (PFO) Closure to fix a heart defect was Plavix and 81 Mg Aspirin. Was Tasked with being on plavix and aspirin for 90 days. First 3 weeks after PFO closure was great- no problems. Muscle & Joint pain presented itself with legs feeling heavy during 4th week along with extremities being cold. Started to become very tired & fatigue throughout the day. Knee and wrist hurting several time a day which continued for 5-6 weeks. Muscle pain did subside somewhat around week 9. Taste changed throughout use of Plavix which was accompanying by burning mouth and tongue. During last 4 weeks of use my vision became very blurry with constant low grade headache in back of head. Last but not least experienced tingling sensation in face, hands and toes during last 2 months of use. Had eye test, MRI on brain, a lot of blood work and exams by DR to check these symptoms out.- All normal. I'm hopeful this drug worked for my PFO but it did not agree with me at all."

For Ischemic Stroke, Prophylaxis: "I have a disgusting sour taste in my mouth since taking Clopidogrel and Amlodipine. Has anyone else experienced this and if so can they link it to either of these meds?"

For Peripheral Arterial Disease: "Provided under hospitalization. The drug should be used cautiously. Diabetics have to be very careful. Even a simple prick for a routine blood sugar test my yield more blood than usual. The drug is effective for decreasing heat murmur. "

Plavix (clopidogrel) for Transient Ischemic Attack: "After my VAD Stroke I am on plavix. I have a toddler that I still nurse. I looked up plavix for several days & talked to several doctors. Some said it was fine, some said it was not ok. After talking to so many people about it, I felt that it seemed ok to nurse on. I've been on it for a month and yesterday I realized that my 2yo is constipated. We are weaning ASAP now because I don't know what else it's doing to him, but it's definitely getting through. I just wanted to post this somewhere for other nursing moms to see. We are currently only nursing 2 times a day right now."

For Transient Ischemic Attack: "I've been taking this medicine for a little over 6 months. I am a 66 yr. old female. In 2014, I lost 30 pds. on purpose, so I have been feeling good, except age-related pain in my hip joints. I've just realized recently that I'm no longer feeling pain in my joints. Nothing has changed in my life except the addition of this medicine. So...I've concluded this is a POSITIVE side effect from taking this medicine."

For Heart Attack: "My father experienced TIA symptoms, taste disturbance, severe weight loss, nausea, pins and needles, speech difficulties and a few hallucinations or visual disturbances over the first eight days of taking clopidogrel with repeated admissions to hospital. He was treated as if he had a TIA although no evidence for it and removed from clopidogrel for ten days during which all symptoms ceased and he returned to normal. He then resumed clopidogrel and the symptoms returned but after a couple of weeks he went into an increasing decline with pain radiating from his lower back, depression, increasing frequency of visual disturbance constipation lethargy, confusion. He was taken off clopidogrel after five weeks and all pain, loss of appetite etc left"

Plavix (clopidogrel) for Heart Attack: ""RCA blockage of 95% in 2013, heart attack and 3 stents. Been on Plavix 75mg since. I am fortunate I don't hardly bleed and never hardly bruise. Wife says I got thick blood and a thick head!!! No side effects, no interactions with my other 7 meds. I had plavix stents and told would have to take this rest of my life. I'm not going to argue since my father died last month from a massive heart attack and it runs in the family strokes, heart attacks and diabetes."

For Heart Attack: "This medication has been nothing but a problem for me. I have nose bleeds 5 plus times a day and spend hours a day making them stop. I feel as though I am starting to have arthritis in my hands from applying pressure. I am 33 years old and was a marathon runner then a blocked artery but an end to that and introduced me to this nightmare medication called "PLAVIX" I think the best gift I have ever received was my doctor telling me to take half a dose a day. However when they found out I was happy and nose bleed free they said maybe I should be on a full dose. This medication makes me feel like I am a 400 pound 85 year old man. My blood even turned pink and one point. Overall still on this medication because of doctors order but do not like it."

Plavix (clopidogrel) for Platelet Aggregation Inhibition: "I've been taking omeprazole for quite a time prior to being prescribed Plavix but NONE of the health professionals involved in my treatment have advised me to cease the Omeprazole even though it's regarded as unwise to. This worries me and I have ceased of my own accord until I can access my GP!"

Plavix (clopidogrel) for Heart Attack: "Been on Plavix for 3 yrs, since I had a quad CABG surgery. Just had two additional stents put in on January 6, 2015. The first two stents were open no clots, no tissue build up, I do have some bruising but not extensive bleeding when I receive a cut. Thankful to stay alive"
