Plavix is sometimes given to mech valve patients, but when it is, it's used as an adjunct to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>Warfarin</span>
and not as a substitute

Sorry you had so many problems with Warfarin
. For people with a-fib such as yourself, there are more options than there are for mech valve patients, if for some reason Warfarin
is not tolerable. But I have to stick by my statement that the side effects you experienced are not what is expected, usual, or common with Warfarin
