If you have recently experienced a heart attack, stroke, or severe chest pain requiring hospitalization, a healthcare provider may recommend clopidogrel bisulfate (Plavix®). This medication is used to prevent blood clots from forming. Although most people tolerate this medication well, it can cause side effects (such as headaches, flu-like symptoms, and major bleeding). Clopidogrel is available in tablet form and is typically taken once a day.
