Plavix (clopidogrel) is used to prevent blood platelets from clotting, a major cause of unwanted blood clots which can result from certain heart and blood vessel conditions. You may be recommended to buy Plavix if you recently had an event related to clotting such as a heart attack or a stroke. Plavix may be used for other conditions not directly related to a heart attack or a stroke.

Important things to know when taking Plavix
It is very important to keep in mind that Plavix keeps your blood from clotting (coagulating) and to thereby prevent unwanted blood clots. This means that you will bleed more easily and may have difficulty in stopping a wound from bleeding, even for a minor injury. If this happens you need to get emergency attention straight away.
For the same reason it is very important that you tell your surgeon or dentist ahead of any surgery or dental work that you are taking Plavix. They may ask you to stop taking Plavix up to 5 days before the event but always make sure you consult with your regular doctor before you stop taking Plavix. Your doctor will also advise you when to resume taking Plavix.
