Plavix, which is generically known as Clopidogrel, is a blood thinning drug mean to inhibit blood clots, in order to reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke. It is marketed by Bristol-Meyers Squibb and Sanofi-Aventis. This drug has been very controversial not only for its side effects, but also for the advertising claims that were made by the manufacturers, which claimed that Plavix was more effective at treating certain heart conditions than Aspirin.
Plavix sales are astronomically high. In the Unites States alone, Plavix sales hover around $4 billion. The rate of consumption of this drug makes Plavix side effects a real threat to public health.
Plavix side effects include, but are not limited to:
- Heart Attack
- Severe Rash
- Upper Respiratory Infections
- Severe Neutropenia
- Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (TTP)
- Chest Pain
- Gastrointestinal Bleeding
- Recurrent Ulcers
These Plavix adverse effects are particularly disconcerting because many of the potential side effects are manifestations of the same things Plavix is meant to treat. Studies have shown that Aspirin thins blood about as well as Plavix, and it does not have nearly as many adverse effects.
If you have been prescribed Plavix for off-label uses and have experienced severe injury or if you have had no history of heart attack and stroke and have subsequently had a heart attack or a stroke, you might be entitled to compensation for your Plavix injuries.
