Handling Plavix Claims Nationwide
Bristol-Meyer Squibb’s popular heart drug Plavix, which is commonly prescribed to prevent heart attacks and strokes, has been linked to serious side effects in patients with a medical history of gastrointestinal bleeding, peptic ulcer disease (PUD), and high cholesterol. While the American College of Cardiology has recommended Plavix as a safe alternative for those who have a gastrointestinal intolerance for aspirin, research indicates that this recommendation is unfounded.
Dangerous Plavix Side Effects
One study, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, found that patients taking Plavix experience 12 times as many ulcers than patients taking a combination of aspirin with a heartburn drug. More research also indicates that taking Plavix and aspirin together, as prescribed by many doctors, doubles the risk of heart attack, stroke, and death in patients with no prior history of heart disease, but who had high cholesterol.
If you or a loved one has suffered serious harm as a result of Plavix side effects, it is advised that you consult with a qualified Plavix lawyer who can inform you of your legal rights and options.
