Clopidogrel is a popular drug that prevents the formation of blood clots in the heart and the blood vessels. This medicine is preferably used to prevent blood clotting. The blood clots may be formed after certain procedures, such as a cardiac stent, coronary artery bypass graft-CABG, or balloon angioplasty. Clopidogrel prevents heart attack or stroke in this way. This medicine is also prescribed for treating chest pain or angina.
Clopidogrel has an anti platelet activity. Certain types of cells are found in blood called blood platelets. These blood platelets are responsible for forming blood clots. Clopidogrel prevents these clots' formation and hence maintains the smooth blood flow. It is one of the most recommended preventive medicines for heart and related disorders. Clopidogrel is hence given in myocardial infarction, stroke and peripheral arterial disease.
