I had my heart attack in Oct. 2008 and had a bare metal stent put in. I have been on 75mg of Plavix for 5 months. My doctor said I would probably be on it for one year.
I've been feeling unsteady and occasionally light headed for a while and it's getting worse. I am thinking it might be the Plavix. Has anyone else had this???
Also, my Osteopath wants to help me get off it and on to the more natural Nattokinase.
While researching getting off Plavix, I read about the potential rebound effect. It is said those who get off Plavix suddenly are more likely to have another heart attack within 90 days. That may be the reason doctors suggest staying on Plavix for life.
We plan to ween me off the Plavix and switch to Nattokinase.
Any similar experiences???
