Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (2 weeks 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 (1 month 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.
