In a previous video, we covered the importance of clot prevention in heart attack and stroke prevention. Plavix was the first option to coumadin. It is on the WHO list of Essential Medications. This means it's been found safe, effective and necessary. It costs about $25/month is the US. The major side effects are the same as all the other anti-clotting or anti-platelet drugs: bleeding or hemorrhage. There were other issues mentioned but not covered in depth: relatively higher benefit for smokers; dipyridamole; CHAD2VAS2. Here's the thing, the big issue - less than 1/3 of people needing this medication are actually taking it. Why? Patients blame docs, docs blame Pharma, ... Let's forget blame and get proper protection for people with atrial fibrillation, post-stroke, and other indications. About Dr. Brewer - Ford Brewer is a physician that started as an Emergency Doctor. After seeing too many patients coming in dead from early heart attacks, he went to Johns Hopkins to learn Preventive Medicine. He went on the run the post-graduate training program (residency) in Preventive Medicine at Hopkins. From there, he made a career of practicing and managing preventive medicine and primary care clinics. His later role in this area was Chief Medical Officer for Premise, which has over 500 primary care/ prevention clinics. He was also the Chief Medical Officer for MDLIVE, the second largest telemedicine company. More recently, he founded PrevMed, a heart attack, stroke, and diabetes prevention clinic. At PrevMed, we focus on heart attack and stroke and Type 2 diabetes prevention by reducing or eliminating risk through attentive care and state-of-the-art genetic testing, imaging, labs and telemedicine options.

Heart attack survivors are frequently given blood thinners to help prevent another heart attack. Often, they also receive a drug to prevent bleeding in the stomach. But now a new study shows two medications, clopidogrel (also known by other names, including Plavix) for the heart and PPIs (such as Nexium and Prilosec) for the stomach, given together, may be risky.

There are no medicines today which are devoid of side effects. We have not reached that level of perfection where we can bring out such medicines without side effects. But it’s the risk – benefit ratio of the medicines which we prescribe to a certain patient. So antacids, even though they look very benign and they also have side effects. But it depends on the quantity and the dosage and the frequency of the dosage as well as the duration for how long you are taking those medicines and that applies to any medicine actually, whether you are talking about anti emetics, antacids and especially antibiotics. Antibiotics are a different category and they are not very benign antacid or antiemetics and antibiotics there are guidelines, there are regimes and protocols to be filled for antibiotics and these days antibiotics are misused over the counter, which is actually causing drug resistance in the world which is a severe menace. So I think side effects has to be weighed against the drug resistance medicines what the doctor is giving and the doctor has a moral responsibility of looking into this side effects. The medicines to be avoided by any woman who is in 50’s .there is a perception that a s you grow old, you will require more medicines and you tend to get careful of what medicines you are taking and the concept is that in medicines when you are giving treatment, we actually look at dose titration, looking at a pediatric individual, or a teenager or an adult or a geriatric individual. So as such there is no medicine that says that it is contraindicated in a woman in 50’s. Unless and until you come to now a condition or a disease it he body which strongly contradicts the treatment because that can lead to complications and that can lead to more damage to that person. So under a different setting, if a patient has lung failure or heart failure or a person has diabetes or blood pressure or a patient has neuropsychiatric problems. Generally in elderly individual, their prescription contains polytherapy, that means she has more than 2 or 3 drugs has a prescription which she has to take. The whole idea is to be careful that there is no drug to drug nitration which can cause harm, so the doctor has to be careful when there is polytherapic prescription. The carefulness and the precaution is to avoid drug to drug interaction, not exactly saying what is contraindicated in the patient.
