Debra Price Young (2 years ago):

I went off of Plavix for 5-6 days for dental work, and a few days when funds were short and couldnt afford it. I just started taking it again a couple of days ago. I seem to be having quite a bit of shorntess of breath yesterday and today..though much worse today...could this be a side effect of getting back on the plavix?
