Plavix(Clopidogrel): Medical Information

Generic Name: Clopidogrel

Active Ingredients: The efficiency of Plavix shows from its nature of being an antiplatelet agent. This is dependent on its alteration to an active metabolite by the cytochrome P450 (CYP) system, predominantly CYP2C19.

The pink film coating of the tablet contains components like hypromellose 2910, ferric oxide, titanium dioxide, triacetin, and lactose monohydrate.

Inactive Ingredients: Each tablet of Plavix contains hydroxypropyl cellulose, hydrogenated castor oil, mannitol, polyethylene glycol 6000 and microcrystalline cellulose as inactive ingredients.

Is Plavix Generic available?

What are generics? Generics are equivalent to brand name drugs at lower prices.

Drug Information:

Clopidogrel, marketed by the brand name of Plavix among others, is an antiplatelet medication that is used to reduce heart attacks and strokes in people with heart disease or even blood circulation diseases (like peripheral vascular syndrome).

The prescribed drug is also used with aspirin to treat a newly developed or deteriorating chest pain (even in case of unstable angina). The medicine keeps the blood vessels open and prevents blood clots post certain medical procedures. Plavix blocks platelets from sticking to each other and prevents them from developing clots, keeping the blood flow regularly in your body.

What is prescribed?

In patients who call for an antiplatelet effect immediately or within hours of pain (like in cases of Acute Coronary Syndrome), shall intake Plavix with a single, 300 mg oral loading dose and then continue with a dosage of 75 mg tablets once daily. If you start consuming Plavix, without a loading dose, that might delay the establishment of an antiplatelet effect in your body by several days. In cases of a recent stroke or an existing Peripheral Arterial Disease, 75 mg once daily, would be advisable for oral consumption (without a loading dose) and after consulting a doctor or specialist. You may buy these prescribed drugs from an accredited online pharmacy.

How to use it?

Follow the directions written on the back of your prescription label. Take the pill with a glass of water. Clopidogrel can be consumed with or without food. Since clopidogrel keeps your blood flow regular to prevent unwanted clotting, it can also make it easy for you to bleed, even from a small injury so, be careful!

Dosage:

As and only prescribed by your doctor; you may take 75 mg tablets of Plavix (or Clopidogrel in other form) which usually come in Pink color, round-shaped, film-coated tablet form. The medicine is also available in the form of 300 mg tablets.

Side Effects:

Common side effects may occur in the form of headache, easy bruising, itching, nausea, and slight heartburn. More rigorous side effects comprise of bleeding and thrombotic thrombocytopenic purpura (TTP). While there’s no indication of harm from the use of this medicine during pregnancy, though, you should absolutely not consume it without any expert advice. Clopidogrel is in the thienopyridine-class of antiplatelets.

Precaution:

Thienopyridines, involving Plavix, augments the threat of bleeding at times. In case a consumer experiences such an adverse effect, it is advisable to immediately stop the dosage and consult a medical specialist. Before consuming clopidogrel or similar antiplatelet drugs, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it.

Drug Interactions:

Clopidogrel usually has a low probability to interact with other pharmaceutical drugs. As an observation, combining it with other drugs that affect blood clottings, such as heparins, aspirin, and thrombolytics, illustrated no significant interactions. Naproxen did augment the likelihood of occult gastrointestinal bleeding, as might be the case with other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medicines. Since clopidogrel inhibits the liver enzyme CYP2C9 in cellular models, it has been conceived that it might also increase blood plasma levels of drugs that are metabolized by this enzyme, such as phenytoin and tolbutamide.
