Drug Interactions With Other Drugs?
What do you want to ask, cpg + aspirin interaction
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the concern you feel.
Clopidogrel is an anti-aggregation (stacking) platelet / platelet (blood clotting cells). This drug serves to prevent the formation of blood clots. Aspirin is an antiplatelet class of drugs, which work by stopping the attachment of platelets to each other in the process of forming blood clots. Meanwhile, atorvastatin is a class of cholesterol-lowering drugs in the blood. The way it works is by inhibiting an enzyme that plays a role in the formation of cholesterol, namely the enzyme HMG-CoA (3-hydroxy-3-methylglutaryl-coenzyme A) reduction.
Scientific studies report that there is an interaction between clopidogrel and aspirin, where the use of both at the risk of causing side effects of excessive bleeding causing black stool tar, black vomiting, abdominal pain, until the body feels weak. Meanwhile, it was reported that the use of atorvastatin with clopidogrel can reduce the effects of clopidogrel, thus risking causing blood clots in blood vessels, which can trigger symptoms of chest pain, tightness, sudden blurred vision, and swelling in the legs.
If you are on clopidogrel therapy and you will get additional medication from your doctor in the form of aspirin or atorvastatin, tell your medication history so your doctor can consider the risk of the interaction and can plan an adjustment for the dosage or type of drug.
