Comments from related studies:
From this study (2 weeks ago):
I have been on the Plavix for 6 months but was told one week ago to discontinue before an angiogram next week. The half life is supposed to be about a week but I have no relief yet from the fatigue. It is seriously impacting my life.
From this study (2 weeks ago):
Struggle to focus at times, procrastinating, lack drive etc. and dizzy when bending over.
Joint pain in right elbow (last few weeks on and off), left hip (5 days ago),right hand (4 days ago),left foot (4 days ago and underneath (heel area) making it difficult to walk).
I sleep well with Circadin (melatonin based sleeping tablet)
and feet, hip do not hurt when laying down at night.
From this study (2 months ago):
I need to stay on the Plavix for 6 months (6 more weeks) but I can barely function, even after a 10 hour's sleep, unheard of for me previously. My G.P. has ruled out virtually everything but the Plavix for my fatigue by doing exhaustive blood tests. Yet my neurologist's office refuses to believe the Plavix is the culprit, though I have not been able to get through to the surgeon himself.
