Detailed Answer:
Hello

Thanks for the detailed information. After going through the medical details provided by you i understand your concern and i would like to tell you that Deplatt CV contains a combination of Ecosprin, Clopidogrel and a statin.

As you were taking only ecosprin only before and now being started on a combination that could be the reason of your acidity.

In my opinion you you can switch to plain Clopitab along with a Statin, but its highly advisable that you should personaly discuss this with your treating cardiologist and get a written prescription from him. I hope this will bring down your hyperacidity problem.

Kind Regards

Dear doctor,
Actually when i have taken the aprin for the last 40 years, i did nott have this acidity problem.But i am having this only when i am taking clopidogrel combination.earlier also i have taken atorvostatin for about 10 years.
Can i switch on to ecosprin av 75 as before?
If not. How long do i have to take this Deplatt cv?
I am told that cardiologists stop this clopidogrel after use for an year.is it so.
Kindly advise.

Brief Answer:
Please refer to the detailed answer below

Detailed Answer:
Clopidogrel is more effective and efficient than ECOSPRIN. So if you want to continue with a single drug then it's better to continue with clopidogrel 75 mg once a day.

Along with that you can take your atorvastatin separately before going to bed once daily.

Yes sone patients can be treated with clopidogrel for one year then then continued with ecosprin.

Hope this will help.

Regards
Dr Bhanu Partap

Dear doctor.
I am not averse to take Deplatt cv but i am afraid of clopidogrel.As i am now taking double blood thinners ,i am afraid that bleeding problem may arise if i take it for long say about 3 or 4 years.If its not harmful i do not mind continuing it.however i cannot discuss with my cardiologist because i am afraid to talk with him.what to do? This is final deliberation with you.i do not continue asking my doubts to you.pl excuse me

Brief Answer:
Hello again

Detailed Answer:
For your information Deplatt CV is a combination of three drugs, Ecosprine, Atorvas and Clopidogral.

Yes you can safely take clopidogral and asprin together as this a low dose combination which usually don't cause any bleeding issues.

As you are having some gastric/ gas issues while taking both the drugs that's why I suggested you to stop taking ecosprine and continue with clpidogral 75 mg as it is more effective than asprin and causes less gastritis.

I hope this information will answer your query.

Kindly close the discussion and rate the answer.
