What is Plavix?
Plavix is prescribed for people who suffer from heart related chest pain, heart-attack, peripheral artery disease and stroke. Plavix is also taken for poor circulation in the legs. It works by slowing or stopping platelets from sticking to blood vessel walls or injured tissues.
Plavix can help to reduce your risk of having a future heart attack or stroke. A heart attack or stroke can occur when a clot forms in an artery supplying blood to the heart or brain. Clot formation works to protect you from excessive bleeding in the case of any injury. Cholesterol and other materials rupture platelets inside the wall of arteries. This condition may completely stop the flow of blood to various parts of the body. Plavix helps keep platelets in the blood from sticking together and forming clots, which helps keep your blood flowing.
What should I know before using Plavix?
Do not take Plavix if you are allergic to any ingredients found in it. If you have a stomach ulcer and any other condition that causes you bleeding, you should not use Plavix. Always try to avoid alcohol while taking Plavix. Do not take aspirin and any other medicine without your doctor’s advice.
If you have any of these conditions, you may not be able to use Plavix:
- a bleeding or blood clotting disorder
- a history of stroke
- a stomach ulcer or ulcerative colitis;
- liver disease
- kidney disease
How I do take Plavix?
Plavix is available in a 75mg dose and is taken by mouth with or without food.
What do I do if I miss a dose?
If you miss a dose, take it as soon as possible. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and go back to your regular dosing schedule. Do not take 2 doses at once.
