Wanted to find out if anyone else is having side effects of generic plavix. Having dizziness, nose bleeds, and large lumps of blood under the skin--- where I have bled and its finally clotted. Never did this on brand plavix. Stumped...so far have not found anyone else on line with this issue. thanks
Good to know, for the primary and secondary prevention of heart attack and brain attack
Epidemiologic Studies (EDS) have revealed risk factors for atherosclerosis, which includes age, gender, genetics (gene deletion, malfunction or mutation), diabetes (considered as being the highest risk factor), smoking (includes secondhand and thirdhand), inactivity, obesity (a global epidemic, "globesity"), high blood pressure (hypertension), high LDL, small, dense LDL, RLP (remnant lipoprotein), high Lp(a), high ApoB, high Lp-PLA2, high triglycerides, HDL2b, LOW HDL (less than 40 mg/dL, an HDL level of 60/65 mg/dL or more is considered protective against coronary artery disease, now questionable, according to recent studies), high homocysteine (now questionable), and high C-reactive protein (CRP/hs-CRP)
It's your future......be there.
