Stroke prevention with Plavix

Q:  I had a stroke one year ago Dec. will I have to be on Plavix for the rest of my life?

A:  You need to discuss this further with your doctor.  If your stroke was the result of a clot coming from your heart, thinning your blood will help prevent a second stroke.  You will need to take the Plavix or another blood thinner for the rest of your life.
