I've been taking Plavix for about 8 months and have had manageable bruising and bleeding for about 6 months ,recently these side effects no longer occur, is this normal or has the drug become ineffective ? I'm on medical therapy for an Nstemi ,no stents.

Re: plavix

Could be your body has finally gotten use to the Plavix and it is being absorbed better? My husband is on it for the past 4 months due to artery cleaning and 2 medicated stents, and so far, so good but we were told there could be some bleeding or bruising in the begining. Make sure you ask your Dr. as it is something that needs answering.

Best of wishes....JJ...
