This medicine, Plavix [Clopidogrel bisulphate] 75mg prevents the formation of blot clots in specific heart or blood vessel conditions. It prevents a heart attack or stroke in individuals who have a pre-existing condition, and also helps those with peripheral arterial disease from developing a heart attack, or a stroke. Clopidogrel prevents blood clotting by disallowing platelets in the bloodstream from sticking to each other, and averts heart attack or stroke.
Uses of Generic Clopidogrel
Clopidogrel, considered to be the best-selling medicine for preventing the formation of blood clots, reduces the risk of cardiovascular death, MI [new or re-infarction, fatal or non-fatal], stroke, refractory ischemia, and helps people suffering from peripheral arterial disease who have poor circulation of blood in their legs. It is administered to patients who have undergone angioplasty and received stents for re-opening their clogged arteries.
A single dose is not likely to be missed. If your cardiologist has told you to take more than one dose a day, and you miss a dose, try to take it if there is sufficient time for the next one, otherwise follow your normal schedule, but don't double your dose.
