Some patients may need to be on long-term oral anticoagulation. Some may need to be on anticoagulation for the whole life. Plavix, similar to Aspirin, is an antiplatelet drug and is effective in treating arterial clots (in cases of stroke, heart attack, peripheral arterial disease). Plavix stops platelets aggregation or prevents them from sticking together.
Avatar m tn Now he should be on aspirin and nerve medications like Lyrica to quiet down the inflammation. Any risk factors like diabetes and hypertension need to be controlled. And he should continue with his physical therapy. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.

CARDIOVASCULAR RISK NSAIDs may cause an increased risk of serious cardiovascular thrombotic events, myocardial infarction, and stroke, which can be fatal. This risk may increase with duration of use. Patients with cardiovascular disease or risk factors for cardiovascular disease may be at greater risk (see WARNINGS and CLINICAL TRIALS).
Avatar f tn Conclusions In this trial regarding CHARMISMA study, there was a suggestion of benefit with clopidogrel treatment in patients with symptomatic atherothrombosis and a suggestion of harm in patients with multiple risk factors. Overall, clopidogrel plus aspirin was not significantly more effective than aspirin alone in reducing the rate of myocardial infarction, stroke, or death from cardiovascular causes." (ClinicalTrials.
Avatar n tn I'm 43yr old and had a small stroke recently. I'm a fit non smoker w/ no risk factors except a newly diagonosed lipoprotein-a of 85 (this level was taken after 6wk of asprin tx). I've had and extensive work up to rule out other causes. My cardiac echo w/ bubble study and ct angiogram from chest to brain was normal. I have a good cholesterol profile and no htn. My thrombophilia work up was basically normal.
Avatar n tn Symptoms from sudden thromboses (clotting) range from headache to motor/sensory loss or speech/cognitive changes +/- seizures depending on how extensive the clot is, its location, and its effect on the brain in terms of causing a stroke. As your doctors have told you, in your daughter's case it does sound as if this was present early on in her life given the amount of collaterals and compensation.
Avatar n tn Ed is correct, but this should also be an "eye opener" for you. Please make sure to modify any risk factors that you control to keep any blockages in check. Smoking, Weight, Blood Pressure and Cholesterol levels are all something you can manage. A little exercise daily goes a long ways as well. Good luck!

6708370 tn?1471493810 I never knew anything about this until she got sick, and this ultimately was the reason for her fatal stroke. low platlets = thick blood = stroke potential. that's why I am here... to help others, so no one has to live through what we did with our mom. not here to cause problems.. not here to blame... her to help. i'm hoping in my story that can be achieved.

Avatar n tn I have never smoked, and I have none of the other risk factors. When I was prescribed Seasonique, I read this forum, worrying about things like weight gain and sex drive, but I never worried about blood clots. I was told they were not a concern for me, and I didn't educate myself about what it really meant to have them. Surely, I thought, it would be an obvious condition if it came on. But it isn't. I took Seasonique for PMDD. I don't mean to scare anyone.
