Since I’m a male in my 40s, my doctor had already put me on an aspirin regimen before I had my stroke. After my ischemic stroke, the doctors in the hospital took me off aspirin and put my on Plavix (Clopidogrel).
The team found risk of major ischemic events among those who received clopidogrel was lower than in those who received aspirin alone (5.0% vs 6.5%; hazard ratio [HR] 0.75, 95% confidence interval [CI] 0.59–0.95; P=0.02).
It’s an interesting bit of data. You can read the article here.
Of course, before making any changes to your medications, please consult with your doctor.
