long term plavix use
Is there any info about long term plavix use.  I have been taking Plavix along with Lisinopril and Toprol for the past two years after quad bypass but I don't feel very good about it anymore.  Any info as in is this medicine weakening my internal organs.

Thanks

It is generally accepted proper therapy for stent implant patients to be on a regimen of plavix and aspirin for about a year as it appears drug eluding stents have tendancy to form clots.  The ACC and AHA guidelines recommend not to be on plavix any longer than necessary as the risk out weighs any benefit.  Aspirin indefinitely.

There may be exceptions, but I am not aware of any.
