Clopidogrel bisulfate (Plavix®) is a medication approved to prevent blood clots from forming. It is primarily used for people who have recently had a heart attack, stroke, or severe chest pain requiring hospitalization. However, it may also be used to prevent blood clots in people who have poor circulation. The dose of clopidogrel your healthcare provider recommends will depend on several factors, such as other medical conditions you may have and other medications you are taking (including vitamins and herbal supplements).
