I wonder where DrSH got is medical degree ?. First up Plavix is not a beta blocker at all. Its generic name is clopidogrel !. It functions as a platelet inhibitor which means that it makes the blood platelets less sticky and therefore clump together less, hope fully to lessen the blocking of coronary arteries !. Forget the bleeding teeth and all the other dire predictions from DrSH. It is normally prescribed to patients who can not tolerate aspirin as aspirin taken over long period can cause GI bleeds. Now I myself have been on Plavix for many years without any problem whatever so do not stop taking them without consulting your GP.
