Usage

Drug Information

This medicine contains clopidogrel which is an antiplatelet agent and inhibits the blood from clotting in coronary artery diseases, cerebrovascular disease, and peripheral vascular disease and to prevent myocardial infarction. Clopidogrel prevents blood clots after recent heart attack or stroke and thereby prevents repeat stroke or heart attack. It is also prescribed for those who have unstable angina or peripheral artery disease. It may be prescribed for any other condition not mentioned here. Clopidogrel is available in 75mg and 300mg tablet form.

Mechanism

Clopidogrel in Plavix acts by inhibiting the ADP receptor on platelet cell membranes, which is important in activation of platelets. It keeps the platelets in blood from coagulating to prevent any unwanted blood clots that can occur due to certain heart or blood vessel conditions. Because of this drug action you become prone to bleed easily even after minor injury, so you need to take extra care. For the medicine to work efficiently it should be taken exactly as prescribed by your doctor.
