Brief Answer:
There is an adverse interaction between Lansoprazole and Plavix

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Welcome and thanks for your query.
Lansoprazole decreases the benefits of Plavix . Since you are also on aspirin this decrease in activity may not have an overall decrease on the blood antiplatelet action as aspirin enhances the effect of Plavix.
This may be discussed with your doctor.

Do get back to me if you have further queries.
