Plavix and Aspirin

Recent research has linked Plavix to numerous potentially deadly side effects, including:

  • Gastrointestinal Bleeding
  • Internal Hemorrhaging
  • Heart Attacks
  • Strokes

A study published in the New England Journal of Medicine showed that patients taking Plavix were 12 times more likely than those taking aspirin and a heartburn pill to experience severe gastrointestinal bleeding and chronic ulcers. Moreover, research revealed that Plavix and aspirin combined offered patients NO BENEFIT over standard low-dose aspirin therapy.
