Plavix Indication

For the reduction of atherosclerotic events (myocardial infarction, stroke, and vascular death) in patients with atherosclerosis documented by recent stroke, recent myocardial infarction, or established peripheral arterial disease

Plavix Pharmacology

Clopidogrel, an antiplatelet agent structurally and pharmacologically similar to ticlopidine, is used to reduce atherosclerotic events such as myocardial infarction, stroke, and vascular death in patients who have had a recent stroke, recent MI, or have established peripheral vascular disease.

Plavix Absorption

Absorption is at least 50% based on urinary excretion of clopidogrel-related metabolites. Bioavailability has not been found to be affected by food.

Plavix side effects and Toxicity

Symptoms of acute toxicity include vomiting (in baboons), prostration, difficult breathing, and gastrointestinal hemorrhage.
