Plavix Side Effects Lawsuit

Plavix or Clopidogrel are terms which refers to a prescription drug, that if taken on a daily basis can significantly reduce your risk of future heart attack or stroke. This medicine is normally recommended for those people who have recently suffered a heart attack or a stroke, but has also been prescribed for PAD, ACS, and other similar diagnoses. In most instances, Plavix ensures that the blood platelets do not stick together and form clots. This helps blood in the arteries and veins to flow consistently at all times.

Side Effects of Plavix

  • The use of Plavix can increase the risk of intracranial bleeding, gastrointestinal bleeding, lycophytic colitis, heart attack and stroke.
  • Plavix can also cause excess bleeding to those who have suffered from trauma or have undergone surgery in the recent past.
  • Combinations of Plavix and aspirin can lead to more bleeding than a combination of aspirin and placebo.
  • Other common side effects that are associated with the use of this drug include: purpura, pruritus, rash, diarrhea, severe neutropenia and intracranial hemorrhage.
