Welcome to HCM.

Plavix contains clopidogrel drug.Clopidogrel is an oral, thienopyridine class antiplatelet agent used to inhibit blood clots in coronary artery disease, peripheral vascular disease, and cerebrovascular disease.

Still i have not heard about that to avoid dark green vegetable,but FDA announced that clopidogrel should not be taken with proton pump inhibitors such as omeprazole and esomeprazole because it reduces the actual effect.

I 76 y.o. - 4 feet 10 inches and 145 lbs. and I had a triple by-pass and mitro valve replacement in 2009. I had a stent placed in my arteries yesterday and I am now on Plavix. My question is can I eat green vegetables, i.e., broccoli, lettuce, peas, etc. while I am on Plavix?

In 2013 and 1 yr later, in 2014, I had a TIA. As a result, after the carotid artery check, my doctor put me on plavix 75 mg and lipitor 10 mg. My GI doctor asked me why I was on the medication, and when I told him, he suggested I could accomplish the same thing with a daily aspirin. Is that correct? Secondly, while applying to change my Medicare Supplement coverage, I was turned out because I take Plavix, which I m told is new and industry-wide. Can you advise on this issue?

Hi. Over the past month or so, any time I turn over to the other side in while in bed, my heart beats quickly, and I feel as though I just got finished running in a race; I have that exhausted feeling without the hard breathing. Also throughout the day, I have a shortness of breath and feel exhausted when doing anything like the laundry, making the bed, or cleaning. I have to sit down for about 10-15 minutes to rest. I also have GERD. I had an EKG, and that came back normal. I currently take 40 mg of Prilosec, and 100 mg of Zoloft. All of my bloodwork came back normal: WBC count RBC count, cholesterol, etc. I am scheduled to have a stress test, but I was wondering if it could be something else? Thank you!
