novastat cv 10

My Mother having the medicine Novastat cv 10 once in a day (at night). Her dentist advise her to stop this medicine for couple of days before and after pull of a wisdom tooth as there would be possibility of non stop bleeding. Please advise if she can stop for few days or any alternate options. ## She should follow her dentist's instructions for the best outcome, and for her own safety. The dentist is correct that this medication can create an increased risk of bleeding, since it contains Clopidogrel, with Rosuvastatin, the former of which is a blood thinner that prevents clotting. Is she on any other medications?

Clopivas AP Uses

clopivas AP ## I had a by pass surgery about a year back for last one year i am taking clopivas-ap150 but now a doctor has stopped this and prescribed ecosprin 150mg with which i am not comfortable can i continue with clopivas even after one year ## Clopivas contains Clopidogrel and Aspirin, it is used to help prevent blood clotting. The NIH lists its typical side effects as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, stomach irritation, and increased risk of bleeding. As to continuing it, it is always best to follow your doctor's instructions. Ecosprin 150 contains 150mgs of Aspirin, so it is only lacking the Clopidogrel.

Clopiwin 75 mg Dosing and Administration

What time of the day should clopiwin 75 mg be taken or administered? Morning or evening? ## Clopiwin contains the active ingredient Clopidogrel, which is a prescription drug marketed for use in treating/preventing various heart problems or stroke. Due to the sensitive nature of its inherent use-case, I would think it's imperative that you discuss dosing and administration with your prescribing doctor. General dosing guidelines suggest taking 75mg once daily with or without food. However, they do not mention what time of day you should take it.

i was prescribed Clopidogrel 75 after a suspected TIA. All completed tests results were normal but i suffer from post-polio syndrome and have muscle weakness in both upper and lower limbs. Since taking Clopidogrel i have experienced symptoms similar to flu symptoms, which diminished a few days after stopping the medication. I also feel very lethargic and fatigued whilst on the medication. Any explanation? i am reluctant to take the medication firstly because the TIA was not proved to have taken place and secondly because i feel so ill whilst on it. ## All medications carry the risk of causing side effects, and the NIH does list those as being possible ones from this medication, along with dizziness, headache, increased risk of bleeding, and easy bruising. Have they checked your clotting...

Clopidogrel and hairloss

I have been taking clopidogrel 75 for circulation for nearly four years now and my hair is so thin It won’t cover my scalp properly, the loss has speeded up in the last six months and I would like to know if you think it will stop before I loose it all (which won’t be long) or is there anything else you can suggest, thank you. ## That is not a common side effect, as listed by the FDA. They are listed as possibly including nausea, dizziness, increased risk of bleeding, and easy bruising. There is really no way to be sure how any given medication will affect anyone that takes it, though. Are you on any other medications? How old are you? Have you consulted your doctor? There are other medications in this class that you can try.

Side-effects of Ecospirin. Any alternatives?

I had been prescribed Ecospirin 150 mg once daily after a mild heart attack in 2001. In 2005 I started experiencing ringing in my ears. In 2007 I started experiencing piles. In 2009 I experienced bleeding ulcers. Doc said these are all known side-effects of long-term use of Ecospirin, and finally discontinued it for me. Instead, he has prescribed Clopi---. Can anyone guide me as to whether it is a good substitute for Ecospirin, and whether it too has side effects from long term usage? ## Clopidogrel is a good substitute.You will not have the side effects as caused by aspirin.

Lifeless hair while taking Clopidogrel

I had a cardiac arrest 3-1/2 months ago. I had manageable hair before. Now my hair won't hold a curl and just lays flat ever since. I have tried everything. Is this related? I take only Clopidogrel and Losartan daily. ## Yes, many medications can cause this issue with your hair, they may also cause hair loss, according to FDA reports, along with nausea, dizziness, and increased urination. Have you changed anything else about your hair care routine and diet, or just the new medications? I've found the Aussie products work well for mine, since I am also taking Losartan with other blood pressure medications, but I usually have to skip conditioner most days, since it weighs my hair down.
