Cardiologist 's  Response
clopidogrel is anti platlet drug which is commonly prescribed to all hypertension and angina patients .
Commonly we use ecosprin , but as you are asthma case , instead of ecosprin , clopidogrel is prescribed .
However consider following thins in addition
1 if you have only BP and no angina , ECG normal , no past history pf heart attack or surgery , you can safely omit clopidogrel after cardiologist consultation in person
2 for gastro intestinal problems consider antacid or drugs which are commonly used for that .

Thanks for your query.
Plagerine 75 is clopidogrel and is a blood thinner prescribed to patients to prevent any chance of getting blood clot causing heart problem.
Also you are having hypertension for which you are taking medicines.
If you want to stop clopidogrel then you should consult your Cardiologist first and if he feels you can stop then on his advice you may do so.
Please do not alter dose or stop medicines on your own.
Take care.
