Plavix

It has been alleged that the manufacturer of Plavix falsely advertised that the drug provides superior cardiovascular benefits to those of aspirin and failed to properly warn consumers about the severe risks of taking the drug, which may include heart attack, stroke, gastrointestinal bleeding, cerebral hemorrhaging and death.

Plavix Linked to Serious Injuries

Plavix has been linked to a number of serious injuries including the following:

Recurrent and bleeding ulcers: Plavix users develop 12 times as many ulcers as those taking aspirin in combination with heartburn pill Nexium, according to a study published in a New England Journal of Medicine. This study suggests that Plavix users should consider switching to a cheaper and potentially safer alternative, such as aspirin plus a heartburn pill, according to some doctors.

Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura (TTP): A study published in 2000 in the New England Journal of Medicine reveals that even short-term use of Plavix can increase the user’s risk of developing Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura. TTP is a rare disorder of the blood-coagulation system which causes blood clots to develop in small blood vessels throughout the body. TTP can cause heart, brain and kidney damage.

Heart Attack, Stroke and Death: Plavix is designed to prevent blood clots in people who have recently suffered a heart attack or stroke, as well as those suffering from certain heart or blood vessel disorders; however, research has suggested that, in some patients, the drug may increase the risk of a heart attack or stroke – the conditions it was designed to prevent.
