Clopidogrel

Brand Names: Plavix

Clopidogrel, which is sold under the brand name Plavix, is an oral antiplatelet medication that can be used alone or in combination with aspirin to lessen the chance of heart attack and stroke. It works by preventing certain blood cells from clumping together and potentially blocking blood flow to the heart or brain. Often it is prescribed to those who have already had a heart attack or severe chest pain, stroke, or to people with other blood circulation problems that could lead to a heart attack or stroke.
