  • From this study (1 week ago):

  • I was first prescribed Plavix/Clopidogrel eight years ago when I suffered three slight heart attacks. All went well until August last year, when I started to suffer bouts of diarrhoea on a regular basis. As I was also on prescription for Pantoprazol in the treatment of Barretts Oesophagus, I put my problems down to that drug. After several visits to my digestive specialist, a further endoscopy, a colonoscopy, a barium meal and a digestive breath test, the specialist insisted that I must stay on Pantoprazol or Omeprazol as, without one of these drugs, my digestive reflux would further irritate the oesophagus.

    I eventually had an appointment with my Neurologist just two weeks ago and she intimated that it could well be the Clopidogrel that was causing the violent bouts of diarrhoea. I am now of the Clopidogrel and take just one aspirin a day. The problem with diarrhoea has now almost ceased.

    As you will gather, I am now 76 years of age and had been taking Plavix for eight years. I live in Spain where the medical treatment is hard to fault.
