    My G.P.s have given me a death sentence by keeping me on Plavix for nearly five and a half years.

I never associated this with the drug they'd gi ...

    Evidently my surgeon did not have me stop Plavix soon enough before surgery. Add to this, the blood thinners he used "during" surgery and three days later a blood vessel lets go inside my nose.

Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (5 years ago):

  • I had a heart attack almost four years ago at age 46. I am trying to incorpotate natural supplements and would like to some day get off of some of these other drugs. (I must say that scares me a little too, because of the chance of having another one). I would also like to do a full body cleanse and fast in the future, but again dont know how that will affect the meds etc.
