CLOPIDOGREL

Information for patients
Drug Information Clopidogrel belongs to a group of medicines called antiplatelet medicinal products. Platelets are very small structures in the blood, smaller than red or white blood cells, which clump together during blood clotting. By preventing this clumping, antiplatelet medicinal products reduce the chances of blood clots forming (a process called thrombosis). Clopidogrel is taken to prevent blood clots (thrombi) forming in hardened blood vessels (arteries), a process known as atherothrombosis, which can lead to atherothrombotic events (such as stroke, heart attack, or death). You have been prescribed Clopidogrel to help prevent blood clots and reduce the risk of these severe events because: -You have a condition of hardening of arteries (also known as atherosclerosis), and -You have previously experienced a heart attack, stroke or have a condition known as peripheral arterial disease, or -You have experienced a severe type of chest pain known as ‘unstable angina’ or ‘myocardial infarction’ (heart attack). For the treatment of this condition your doctor may have placed a stent in the blocked or narrowed artery to restore effective blood flow. You should also be given acetylsalicylic acid (a substance present in many medicines used to relieve pain and lower fever as well as to prevent blood clotting) by your doctor.
Drug Alert
Alert •If you are allergic (hypersensitive) to clopidogrel •If you have a medical condition that is currently causing bleeding such as a stomach ulcer or bleeding within the brain; •If you suffer from severe liver disease. If you think any of these apply to you, or if you are in any doubt at all, consult your doctor before taking Clopidogrel.
Before Consuming the Medicine
Avoid Drug •If you are allergic (hypersensitive) to clopidogrel •If you have a medical condition that is currently causing bleeding such as a stomach ulcer or bleeding within the brain; •If you suffer from severe liver disease. If you think any of these apply to you, or if you are in any doubt at all, consult your doctor before taking Clopidogrel.
Drug Special Care If any of the situations mentioned below apply to you, you should tell your doctor before taking Clopidogrel: •if you have a risk of bleeding such as -a medical condition that puts you at risk of internal bleeding (such as a stomach ulcer) -a blood disorder that makes you prone to internal bleeding (bleeding inside any tissues, organs or joints of your body). -a recent serious injury -a recent surgery (including dental) -a planned surgery (including dental) in the next seven days •if you have had a clot in an artery of your brain (ischaemic stroke) which occurred within the last seven days •if you have kidney or liver disease While you are taking Clopidogrel: •You should tell your doctor if a surgery (including dental) is planned. •You should also tell your doctor immediately if you develop a medical condition (also known as Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura or TTP) that includes fever and bruising under the skin that may appear as red pinpoint dots, with or without unexplained extreme tiredness, confusion, yellowing of the skin or eyes (jaundice). •If you cut or injure yourself, it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop.
