Ok, it has been over a year since my heart attack and my cardiologist wants me to stop taking Effient. He says that studies show there is no real benefit for the heart after a year, but there is more risk of bleeding so he wants me to stop taking it. I have read conflicting information/stories on this. Some people have had more heart issues after stopping and some have done fine. I will still be on the daily 325mg of aspirin and all the other meds, but stopping Effient has me a bit scared. I have one stent in my LAD. Any advice from others?
