Were you looking for information about Plavix? Plavek is a common misspelling of Plavix.
Plavix® (clopidogrel bisulfate) is a medication that is given to people who have had a recent heart attack, stroke, or severe chest pain requiring hospitalization to prevent harmful blood clots from forming. It affects platelets, which are a type of blood cell that clumps together to form clots and stop bleeding in the event of a cut or injury. Plavix tablets come in one strength only and should be taken by mouth once a day.
