I have been on Plavix since March 2011. I was put on Plavix before my operation for a cerebral aneurysm stint. I had to take Plavix for approximately 10 days prior to surgery and take it for 90 days following surgery. I immediately gained 5-10 lbs just before surgery and gained a total of 23lbs just after surgery. I proceeded to lose a few pounds since but have only lost 9 lobs of the 23 I gained. I work out daily clocking 5-10 kms on the treadmill as well as weight training with low weights, high reps. I also play Ice Hockey and Ball Hockey. I have stayed the same and cannot lose while on Plavix. I'm on no other medications other than Plavix so I know that my weight gain can be attributed to this. I also use keytosis strips to measure whether or not I'm burning calories every morning and every night...I'm not. I will be finished my Plavix in two weeks and will report back to this forum if the weight starts to come off.
