Weight gain, bloating and constipation. Horrible brain fog and memory loss. Recently prescribed along with 81mg aspirin. Feel after reading others experiences that this is a nasty drug. Also, after first procedure prescribed Xarelto. Lord God almighty, is this how I am to live my life!? I have no interest in hobbies, I want to sleep, couch or bedridden most of the time. Is it Plavix or Xarelto? Both! F 59 29 days

 1  Heart Stent Chest pain, dizziness, shortness of breath, feeling like I was dying. The worst drug ever. I told my doctor something had to give, after 30 days on this toxic chemical I wished I had died of the heart attack. Luckily, my doctor listened and changed me to the anti-coagulant Effient. I'm a different man. All the symptoms are all but gone. If you're sensitive to medication keep insisting on trying other drugs until your doctor finds one that works, rather than just suffering.

 4  Heart Stent in LAD I had chest discomfort and shortness of breath when walking the first month. Not sure if this was the plavix or the angioplasty, but had no chest pain ever prior. I have a loss of physical strength on plavix and had to buy a jar opener, lol. Minor side effects include feeling colder, minor hair shedding and disturbed sleep. I also have had frequent upset stomach in the mid morning, which has finally gone away after 5 months. No bleeding or bruising, except for the first week. Overall, I'm satisfied with the plavix. My LAD was 80 percent blocked prior to the stent and my RCA is still 50 percent blocked. I'm not thrilled about taking plavix, but we don't have much of a choice do we. I also take a daily aspirin and blood pressure medications. I'll be on plavix for 1 year. M 53 5 months

 2  3 heart stents severe headache, unusual fatigue, dizziness update (I am writing a new review b/c this site never sent me a way to log in): my doctor said that I could discontinue the drug in view of how debilitating it was. He says there is only a small percent chance of stent stenosis. F 67 7 weeks

 2  3 heart stents placed constant severe headache, fatigue, a little dizziness I was supposed to feel better after the heart cath but this drug makes me feel worse. To add insult to injury, I can’t take NSAIDs for the headache—they are contraindicated with this drug. And it makes me dizzy and off-balance, so I bump into things and get huge deep bruises, another lovely side effect. I am desperate to be able to think and have energy again. F 67 7 weeks

PLAVIX  (CLOPIDOGREL BISULFATE):  Clopidogrel is used to prevent heart attacks and strokes in persons with heart disease (recent heart attack), recent stroke, or blood circulation disease (peripheral vascular disease). It is also used with aspirin to treat new/worsening chest pain (new heart attack, unstable angina) and to keep blood vessels open and prevent blood clots after certain procedures (such as cardiac stent). Clopidogrel works by blocking platelets from sticking together and prevents them from forming harmful clots. It is an antiplatelet drug. It helps keep blood flowing smoothly in your body.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
