Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 month ago):
I was put on Plavix for a 3 month time period after having a heart implant to close a hole. When taken off, I suffered a daily migraine (mostly the aura) and excruciating leg cramping. They put me back on Plavix and started a weaning schedule. I was symptom free for two weeks, but now that I'm about to lower my dose to every 3 days, the symptoms are back. I wake up screaming in the night from the pain from the leg cramps. They need to get me off Plavix because I have spontaneous hemorages from it.
From this study (8 months ago):
Heart was tested and tests were negitive. D-dimer was high. All other blood tests were normal.
