Overview Information on Plavix
Pharmacist Tip
Tell your doctor or dentist as soon as possible before you receive any medical or dental care, emergency treatment, or surgery. You may need to stop taking Plavix temporarily.     
Plavix® is the brand name for a prescription medicine called clopidogrel. Your doctor may have given you Plavix to treat a heart problem, poor circulation in your legs, or coronary artery disease. Plavix helps to prevent platelets from sticking together and forming a clot that can block a blood vessel. Platelets are blood cells that help your blood clot normally. Your doctor may have given you Plavix to take alone or with aspirin to lower your chance of having a serious problem with your heart or blood vessels, such as heart attack or stroke.

Your doctor also may treat you with Plavix if you have chest pain because of heart problems.
