I am a little nervous about having to change from plavix ( which by the way was working well~ I mean I haven't had a stroke or anything just bruising and that is to be expected) So why change a good thing. My Motto is "if it ain't broke then leave it alone" . My nerves are on edge. My anxiety level is rising by the minute. Does anyone else out there feel the same or am I making a mole hill into a mountain?
Elke, I have just had the same exact thing happen to me...I have a few more Plavix pills to take then have to switch to the Generic. Would you mind checking the one they have sent me as well? Would so appreciate it...I, too, am nervous about the change. So, Tiffany, thanks for posting!
I just switched to the generic. I do not see a change yet but it has only been since sunday. I will keep you posted. My nervousness now, is the dr that I won't be seeing any more now is trying to take me off all thinners completely in July and just stay on the baby asprin. I am terrified. I go see a new neurologist on tuesday and am quite nervous about the whole thing. I am with ya sister.
How long is everyone usually on Plavix with a stent? I could have sworn he told me differently befor my coiling.
Rhonda, I believe my doctor said I would have to be on Plavix or generic for 6 mons. and then just on a aspirin for life. I do believe that is what was said to me and my husband agrees. He was there with me when the Doctor told me that.
Hope this helps if not call and ask your doctor. Hey we`re the reason they have a job!!!lol Good luck!!
