Since Saiontz & Kirk announced that we are investigating claims for Plavix side effects, many concerned individuals have contacted our office for a free claim evaluation.  Studies have found that Plavix provides no significant benefit over cheaper aspirin, and could in fact increase the risk of serious and potentially fatal injuries for some users.  Despite the Plavix dangers, as of this date, there have been no indications that a Plavix withdrawl or recall is imminent. 

Our Plavix lawyers are currently investigating claims for users who have taken the blood thinner and suffered one of the following injuries:

  • Heart Attack (with no prior heart attack within one year)
  • Stroke (with no prior stroke within one year)
  • Gastrointestinal Bleeding, Hemorrhage or Internal Bleeding
  • Ulcers or aggravation of a previously healed ulcer
  • Death

>>INFORMATION: Plavix Side Effects

Anyone who is taking Plavix currently should not stop taking the medication without consulting with their doctors.  Risks of stopping Plavix without medical management could result in serious harm, including death.

    My MIL was on Plavix for her stints in her heart, she looked fine afterward until a few days later, she had a heart attack.
    In the hospital, she started bleeding into her abdomen and the doctors say it was from the Plavix that gave her TTP! Guess what? There is NOTHING apparently they can give her to hold down the clots from possibly forming from her stint surgery.

    So, here she is, since the weekend before Thanksgiving and she is still not out of the woods.

    Any thoughts?

    my husband was prescribed plavix after his first heart attack in feb 2010…2wks later he had another one….then in june of same year had his 3rd…he has been in and out of the hospital on 3 oher occasions including Easter 2011 and has frequent angina…all the time..he is only 38…and was in excellent health before the attacks. Aren’t these meds supposed to decrease the angina??? Hopefully the plavix isn’t the cause of all the repeat visits…
    Concerned wife…
