Common Questions and Answers about Plavix and ticlid

plavix

I have to say, Jim, that a full 325 mg aspirin plus 150 mg of Plavix is a gorilla dose. As a caveat... When taking my 75mg of Plavix and 81mg aspirin 1 1/2 years ago, I developed a bowel obstruction which led to emergency surgery. There were no options, the surgery had to take place, and quickly as I showed signs of kidney failure, a BNP test showed my heart was affected, etc.
Can you briefly discuss what 'Ticlid' is and how it is used relating to the brain? Would it be used in a patient who had a bleeding stroke in the past(four years ago)? Would it be used in the presence of an aneurysm? Thank you ========================================================================== Thanks for your question.
He said their are more side effects from Ticlid and one can be fatal so I should stick with Plavix. My question is has anyone had these side effects from Plavix and what do you do to cope or is anyone taking Plavix every other day without any problems?Thank you for listening.
The surgical team at the hospital has taken him off Plavix and is infusing him with blood and fluids. This is not life threatening, but I do think it points to some of the hazards of using a powerful drug like this for a very extended time. I'm sure Big Pharma has all sorts of B.S. they throw at the Cardiologists, saying this is a great treatment plan. All I've got to say is thank god he was not in a car wreck. I would imagine the bleeding would have been difficult to stop.
I was started on plavix (caused severe rash) and changed to Ticlid to prevent clotting at the site of the stents. I am on toporol and crestor and one baby aspirin a day. I am experiencing severe pain in my right elbow joint and in my right hip and in a bunion on my right foot. All started after I started my medications six weeks ago. I am also covered with bruises. Everywhere I bump, even lightly, swells up and turns bright purple.
If you take anticoagulants or medication that increase bruising (asprin, steroids, ticlid, plavix, NASAIDS, coumadin) that can cause the problem. See an Eye MD for a proper diagnsois.
steroids, coumadin, asprin, ticlid, plavix, non-steroidal antiinflammatories. Sometimes it just happens (like recurrent nose bleeds) because the blood vessels are thin and break easily.
First stent and the second time, I developed allergic reaction to Plavix, second time with Ticlid, had 2 small seisures, tried Plavix again with Benadryl, this time developed intercranial bleeding. Angina symptoms have reoccured, but cardiologists will not tell me what I can do if I cannot take blood thinners (I have allergic reactions or bad reactions to almost all meds). I'm just told, "We'll cross that bridge when we get there.
And she told me to take some Xanax and either I make a choice between taking the Plavix or Ticlid. I told her that the Plavix was out of the question and I would deal with the side effects of the Ticlid. She is telling me that there is really no other medicine out there because of me being so sensitive to give to me. This has become a really frustrating process and I know it can only get better from here. She wants me to have some blood work done again.
called Plavix which does not require a bimonthly CBC monitoring. Can you tell me something about this new drug and also the differences between this drug and Ticlid. I had assumed I was taking Ticlid only as an alternative to aspirin since I am allergic to aspirin. I compliment you and the Cleveland Clinic for the sponsorship of this forum This is a wonderful, informative website.

Unless you are on coumadin (warfarin), heparin, plavix, ticlid or have a blood disease its common and harmless. The antibiotics are not helpful and not necessary. Its like a bruise on the eye and there's really nothing you can do to make it go away faster.
The most commonly used medications are aspirin, clopidogrel (Plavix), combination aspirin/extended release dipyridamole (Aggrenox), ticlopidine (Ticlid), and warfarin (Coumadin). These can be taken if your physician suggests. Refer http://www.americangeriatrics.org/education/forum/stroke.
Depending upon these phases, the treatment of stroke includes platelet antiaggregants like aspirin, ticlopidine (Ticlid), clopidogrel (Plavix); HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors (statins); antihypertensives; thrombin inhibitors like warfarin and thrombolytics like tissue-type plasminogen activator. Recently a new approach has been used in many hospitals.It is hyperbaric oxygen therapy. You can learn more about this therapy from the following website: http://www.tldp.
In particular, people taking fish oil or long-chain omega-3 fatty acid (EPA and DHA) supplements in combination with anticoagulant drugs, including aspirin, clopidogrel (Plavix), dalteparin (Fragmin), dipyridamole (Persantine), enoxaparin (Lovenox), heparin, ticlopidine (Ticlid) and warfarin (Coumadin), should have their coagulation status monitored using a standardized prothrombin time assay (INR).
that is have cells grow over them after several weeks and this will often change the medication one is receiving (i.e. antiplatelet drugs - aspirin, plavix, ticlid, etc.) I hope you find this information useful. Information provided in the heart forum is for general purposes only. Only your physician can provide specific diagnoses and therapies. Please feel free to write back with additional questions.
Well after that procedure and lots of medicines later I had to go back to the hospital because the Plavix was making me feel not well at all and lots of test were performed as well. Now that I am on Ticlid I feel a little better have more energy but I am still having some chest pain here and there. But not all the time. I am only 44 years old and I am shocked on how this has come out. I am very scared and wondering if there is something else going on with my heart. Or am I just anxious.
He stopped taking the Ticlid they put him on to thin his blood and the fevers stopped. Now they have him back on Plavix. We are hoping the fevers dont come back. Since he has been home he has been feeling depressed, tired and sweats alot. I am posting this just hoping that maybe you or someone else may have gone through or knows someone that had this same problem. I was just hoping someone could think of something his cardiologist isint thinking of.
Aggrenox, Plavix, and Aspirin must be discontinued for 7 days prior to injection and Ticlid 14 days prior to injection. Coumadin should be discontinued 3-4 days prior to injection and you will need to have blood work completed within 24 hours prior to procedure. drink 1-2 full cups water 60 minutes prior to injection. eat a LIGHT meal. you may have 1-2 pieces of toast or crackers for breakfast if your injection is scheduled in morning hours. all of that is listed on my paper.
Ticlid was mentioned when I was in the hospital and started having problems with the Plavix. My doctor did not want to put me on the Ticlid because he thought I would have more side effects. I think at this point it is worth a try! May I ask if you require weekly blood work while you are on the Ticlid? My doc said I would have to test weekly if I do take it.
Changed medications discontinuing Nitro,Plavix and statin. I lost so much blood fr. Plavix iI became anemic and needed to be transfused w/ 13 packs during and after surgery/ bypass. My left recurrent laryngeal nerve was paralyzed after the bypass where I choked on liquids and raspy voice which I was told was rare to happen too. Went OK after 2 months, I got my voice back after I refuse surgery to inject my Left vocal cord .

Blood-thinning medications -- Ginkgo has blood-thinning properties and therefore should not be used if you are taking anticoagulant (blood-thinning) medications, such as aspirin, clopidogrel (Plavix), dipyridamole (Persantine), heparin, ticlopidine (Ticlid), or warfarin (Coumadin). There has been bleeding in the brain reported when using a ginkgo product and ibuprofen (Advil), a non-steroidal antiinflammatory drug (NSAID).
After a stent is placed, anti-platelet therapy consists of aspirin indefinitely and plavix or ticlid for 2-3 weeks. Anti-platelet therapy is used to prevent thrombosis of the stent in the immediate post-angioplasty period. Within one month, the stent is coated with endothelial cells of the blood vessels and thrombosis doesn't occur. However, scar tissue can accumulate within the stent over the first 1-6 months after placement.
I noticed signs of heart attack and stroke, but was in pain and told myself the control room techs were picking up and treating it. Was put on Ticlid. Besides making me feel beat up, it caused 2 mild seisures. We tried the Plavix w/Benadryl again to try to make it to the 30 day marker. This time I had intercranial bleeding and at day 25 stopped blood thinners.
Clinical trials with heparin-coated stents (heparin is a widely used anticoagulant) have been promising, but new techniques with stent deployment (high pressure stent dilation) and improved medical treatment after stent deployment (aspirin and ticlid/plavix) have made stent thrombosis a rare event in 1998. A stent will not oxidize in your heart since the stainless steel and other metals are resistant to oxidation.
In the US, it is not our first drug of choice. Alternatives include Ticlid, Plavix, or aspirin. I am not familiar with the other two drugs that you listed. If not already done, I recommend an evaluation by a neurologist. Discuss working up the cause of the stroke and medication for prophalaxis. good Luck.
I am on Atenolol...and a healthy dose...50 mg in the morning..and 50 mg at night. I have read posts here where people really have trouble with it, but I just love it. It keeps my heartrate down---and (most...well...some..) of the time it helps with the palpitations. I had some dizziness when I first started taking it, but thats it. Not one other side effect. I was also on Lipitor a year ago...It really worked, and I had zero side effects from that. Hope this helps!
