Plavix® (clopidogrel bisfulate) is a prescription medication used to prevent harmful blood clots from forming in people who have recently experienced a heart attack, stroke, or severe chest pain requiring hospitalization. The drug may also be used to prevent blood clots in people with poor circulation.
Plavix comes in the form of a tablet, which is normally taken once a day, with or without food. Examples of common side effects associated with the drug include major bleeding, headaches, and dizziness. In addition, this medication may not be suitable for everyone. For example, people with liver or kidney disease or a bleeding disorder should talk with their doctor before beginning treatment.
