I had a stent put in my artery about 20 days ago. Since then I’ve been on plavix. I felt great after the procedure, then I started to feel fatigued, dizzy, light headed, arms and legs feel heavy, brain fog, confused, and my menstruatal cycle has been one of the worst ever. I also have tons of bruising on my legs and other parts of my body as well.

Just found this group. Had no idea taking Plavix could be the cause of my balance problems that have gotten worse over the years. I am in my late 70's. I have had several falls over the years and fractured my left leg last year. After many tests, nothing was found to see why the balance problems. I am certainly looking forward to learning more from this group.

I take Clopidogrel (Plavix) 75mg a day. I have a blocked carotid artery at a junction and the Plavix is to prevent clots as blood passes this junction.
My question is. Can I take turmeric, 1 tsp per day, while taking Plavix? My second question is. If turmeric is so good at thinning the blood as it is said to be, why can’t I take turmeric instead?

My husband died as a result of taking Plavix following a TIA he had in January of 2012. For 6 months he took Plavix and when it came off patent in May, 2012 he was given the generic called Clopidogrel for 3 more years. Many of the side effects of Plavix or the generic drug presented in my husband, but were attributed to his existing disease, NASH - nonalcoholic cirrhosis of the liver. During the time he was on this medication he had nose bleeds, bleeding in his mouth, and constant bruising. When he had a cerebral hemorrhage and a gastro-intestinal bleed, doctors could not figure out what was happening.
After his death in December of 2015, I proceeded to do some research on my own. Major side effects from these drugs are cerebral hemorrhages, gastro-intestinal bleeds, nose bleeds, gum bleeds, blood bruising and bone marrow disorder. It was this last side effect that ultimately killed my husband. He developed a bone marrow disorder which led to AML leukemia. He died from this leukemia.
In my research I have read so many accounts of people who had been prescribed Plavix and were later diagnosed with AML leukemia. Obviously, not a coincidence. It would appear to be a direct result of taking these drugs.
Due to the ruling by the Supreme Court Justices which stated that all generic drugs and their manufacturers, some 80% of all drugs consumed in the United States, are exempt from liability for side effects, mislabeling or virtually any other negative reactions caused by their drugs. In short, the Court ruled that the FDA has ultimate authority over pharmaceuticals in the US, and if the FDA says a drug is safe, that takes precedent over actual facts, real victims and any and all adverse reactions.
In other words, if the FDA says something is safe, it does not matter if that decision is wrong or the result of misrepresentation, fraud or deception on the part of the world's pharmaceutical companies. There is no way to sue the FDA for being wrong and costing millions of unsuspecting Americans their lives. That result leaves millions of Americans unprotected from an industry responsible for innumerable preventable deaths in the US from use of these drugs and their side effects.
My husband died and there is no recourse. However, if he was holding a hot cup of coffee from McDonald’s, we could have litigated this! Pharmaceutical companies and our government in the eyes of the Supreme Court are putting profits before people. This decision has to be reversed.

I was put on plavix and aspirin daily 2 months ago for 6 months after undergoing surgery for a pipeline for a brain aneurism. My headaches only started 2 weeks ago. I am trying to find out if it's the medication causing my headaches. I also had contrast dye with my ct two weeks ago then the headaches started and thought perhaps that was the cause but the neuro surgeons nurse didn't seem to think so. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

I am taking Plavix 75 mg and taking Psyllium 3 hours after taking Plavix so that it does not lower the blood level of Plavix. I never take the two together. Please advise if it is okay to do so.
