Off of Plavix
I had a Cypher stent installed back in 2007 at PL Branch...I need back surgery and the surgeon wants me off Plavix 10-14 days..After informing my Cardiologist, he said okay, in fact he said it has been 4 years with no problems, so just stay off the Plavix permanently...After reading so many horror stories, I am concerned...I have been on Plavix for 4 years along with an 81 Mg aspirin. I think I will continue the aspirin...but this is day 3 and no problems thus far..


This discussion is related to Plavix dosing following drug eluting stents.

I stopped the Plavix after 2 years without any problems.  You will still take your aspirin. Take care, Ally

Did you stop it abruptly or over period of time? Did you have a heart attack and DES and were put on Plavix because of this and do you take 81 or 325 mg of Aspirin?
Thank you for your response
