Drug Names(s): clopidogrel bisulfate, SR25990C, Iscover

Description: Plavix (clopidogrel bisulfate) is in a class of medications called antiplatelet drugs. It works by helping to prevent harmful blood clots. Clopidogrel selectively inhibits the binding of adenosine diphosphate (ADP) to its platelet receptor and the subsequent ADP-mediated activation of the glycoprotein GPIIb/IIIa complex, thereby inhibiting platelet aggregation. Clopidogrel acts by irreversibly modifying the platelet ADP receptor. Consequently, platelets exposed to clopidogrel are affected for the remainder of their lifespan.
