08 Aug 2011 My Plavix experience overall has been worthwhile over the past couple of months. However, I think I am going to stick to the aspirin and continue living a healthy lifestyle.

15 Jun 2011 This is one of the most important medication that I am taking, It does alot of good for my heart and I dont know what I would do without it. It has saved my heart many times and hopefully it protects my heart from any kinds of future problems. This medication is the most prefered by heart/cardiologists and their are rally no substitues. By court order they wouldnt let any substitutes, this is one of the only drugs out on the market that prevents heart problems and thier is no generic

29 Nov 2010 I get bruises easier than I used to, and I also have experienced more bleeding. I am a mechanic and outdoors a lot doing heavy labor, and am prone to injury, so the bleeding is an issue. Other than that, it's great.

16 Aug 2010 Plavix really makes a difference for my high cholesterol. I tell all my friends about it because I think it could help them too. Definitely consider using this if you haven't tried it yet.
