Hello,

Clopidogrel is used to prevent heart attacks and strokes in persons with heart disease.

Amlodipine is used to lower blood pressure. Both medications are used only when on prescription and when are needed.

So, I suggest to follow your doctor's advice and use the medications as prescribed. I also suggest to do regular check-ups.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr Dorina Gurabardhi, General & Family Physician
