I had a RCA stent placement on May 1, 13, at which time plavix was aadded to my current list of medications which included Nexium. Ive been taking both since the stent was placed. Each time I see my doctors (primary, and cardiologist) including the time of the placement in May, I gave them my list of current meds INCLUDING NEXIUM.
During a television advertisement for Nexium, they stated "DO NOT TAKE NEXIUM IF YOU TAKE PLAVIX or the generic for" In reasearching a little bit...I found it to be true that the nexium will prevent the plavix from preventing clotting to form in my new stent.
I am so very angry and frustrated over this I COULD JUST SCREAM!!!! Should I fire my doctors or just talk to them about it???????View Thread
thanks for your reply Dr. James, but I'm wondering why they did'nt catch it being that its so important for me to take the plavix to protect my new stent....I'm concerned that my well being isn't as important to them as I'd like it to be.View Thread
