If you were taking it for that long and just suddenly stopped abruptly, without tapering off of it, then yes, that can happen as a withdrawal effect.

Learn more Plavix details here.

It should taper off in severity soon, after your body starts to adjust to no longer having the medication, but if it doesn't or if it gets worse, then you should seek immediate medical attention, because rebound effects can also occur from stopping such a medication.

Is there anything else I can help with?

I had a heart stent done in about 2004...however, I think I was misdiagnosed. Because of shortness of breath, and perspiring they said it was my heart. The odd thing is, at the same time a lung Dr. said "Asthma". The breathing meds she gave me immediately cleared up both symptoms. I went in for an angiogram and the medicated stents were just being used. The heart Dr. ask me (while in my chest) "so, do you want a stent?" WHAT???? I told him he was the Dr. not me...he put it in, and I was on Plavix for the next yr. When I returned to him for a check-up, he ask me "why are you still taking Plavix?" At a Co-Pay of 200.00 + my insurance, I now I NEED to be on it? One heart Dr. says yes, that anyone with a stent needs to stay on it....the OTHER 'Dr' says no???? I cannot afford name brand anymore, and the generic version gives me headaches! HELP! Also, how long is expired Plavix good for?
