Hi, I just had a heart bypass 2 weeks ago. Several years before the operation I used to take the blood thinner morning aspirin and clopidogrel at noon (because I had a stroke too). After the operation, I only give aspirin, can I continue the clopidogrel?

1 Answer:

Hello Rusli, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com

Bypass surgery (CABG) does not necessarily require dual antiplatelet therapy (DAPT - dual antiplatelet therapy) Aspirin and Clopodogrel. DAPT is only given to CABG with certain conditions (for example, on off-pump CABG). Meanwhile, it is necessary to know the reason for giving DAPT to you beforehand because not all stroke conditions also require DAPT.

Therefore, before you decide to take Clopidogrel again, you should first consult with your cardiologist. Providing DAPT requires consideration of the advantages and disadvantages of giving therapy, because giving DAPT can increase the risk of spontaneous bleeding. You should not take Clopidogrel without first consulting your cardiologist.

So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
