Were you looking for information about Plavix? Plavic is a common misspelling of Plavix.
Plavix® (clopidogrel bisulfate) is an antiplatelet medication used for preventing blood clots from forming after having a heart attack, stroke, or chest pain that required hospitalization. It is also approved to prevent clots in people with very poor circulation, such as those with peripheral artery disease. Before your healthcare provider gives you Plavix, make sure he or she is aware if you are pregnant, have kidney or liver problems, or have any allergies.
