Mon, May 6 1:31pm · Blood Thinners–how soon do they act, how long to stay on them? in Heart & Blood Health

After stents I have been on clopidogrel for 13 months. In the beginning my cardiologist indicated I would have to stay on for one year. At my last visit one month ago I ask him how much longer to be on the clopidogrel. As he was walking out the door, WITHOUT LOOKING BACK, he angrily said “three years” and then walked out. I could not believe this. All I did was pleasently ask him a question. I have noticed on the internet, different cardiologist recommendations have been from 3 months to life time. Most have stated one year. I am feeling great and have since the beginning. Want to get off as soon as possible. Thanks for the response.
