I am currently taking 75msg plavex and 2mgs of prednisone

I am currently taking 75msg plavex and 2mgs of prednisone daily. I have been treated for about three years with prednisone the chief medication for arteritis brought on by shingles which erupted one week after a hip replacement. After the ateritis was successfully treated the prednisone was terminated about six months ago. This was followed by a tia in July and plavex was prescribed. Now blood tests show inflammation (2.6) and thus prednisone for the time being.

Hello.. I am a 71 yr old man and I am currently on a tapering dose of Prednisone 20 mg. and the dose is 3 for 3 days 2 for 3 days 1 tablet for 3 days and then 1/2 tablet for 4 days. If you are wondering ...yes I have taken prednisone before like this BUT I also have been taking Clopidogrel 75 Mg. since 2001. I JUST read here online that there is a drug interaction or actions between the 2... Can you please tell me about this? I have never noticed anything different about taking them together before but I m worried that the interaction may be something that occurs inside of my body where I cant see or feel it.
