Prescription Drug Q&A:Is it true that Plavix Causes Breathing Problems?

A common question asked to health professionals is whether or not the prescription antiplatelet drug Plavix causes breathing problems.

some people think that a common side effect is plavix causes breathing problems“Plavix is the only widely available prescription antiplatelet that can provide protection against a future heart attack or stroke”

Plavix, also known as clopidogrel, is prescribed to patients in order to help keep platelets in the blood from sticking together and forming clots. It was first approved on November 17, 1997 by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to be taken once a day. Since then, Plavix has been prescribed to prevent and treat symptoms of heart attack, stroke, blood clots and acute coronary syndrome in over 52 million patients worldwide.

Side effects to this prescription drugs can include bleeding, confusion or dizziness, and in some cases Plavix causes breathing problems because of an allergic reaction. Difficulty breathing can include the closing of the throat, and swelling of the lips, tongue or face.

However, the makers of Plavix recently funded a study involving 9,599 patients taking the prescription drug. Researchers found that only “4.5% of the group developed breathing problems or dyspnea” says Martin Crane, M.D. In the past, Plavix has been the subject of four major clinical trials involving more than 81,000 subjects. The drug has demonstrated early and long-term risk reduction for atherothrombotic events. Plavix is the only widely available prescription antiplatelet that can provide protection against a future heart attack or stroke for patients with ACS, recent MI, stroke, or established peripheral artery disease.

If you develop any major side effects or find that Plavix causes breathing problems in your body, tell a medical professional immediately.
