Generic equivalent for Plavix?
Thanks for your question. Plavix is a popular blood thinner that is used to help prevent strokes, heart attacks, and clots in blood vessels is also known by its generic name - clopidogrel.
There is presently no generic available on the market. In 2006, a Canadian company released generic clopidogrel, but was quickly withdrawn due to a patent dispute. A European company also claims to be close to releasing this generic, but a patent dispute is likely to occur again. Bristol-Myers Squibb currently has the patent on Plavix, which is not due to expire until 2011.
I hope this information has been helpful.

A Canadian pharmacy offers a product they call Plavix made by a company other than Bristol Meyers Squibb. Is this a true copy of Plavix?
Thank you Bill Pardey
The generic version is back on the Canadian market...I just bought some for less than a third of the price of Plavix....
I bought my Plavix online via www.medsheaven.com and its worth the shot.
the drug warfarin sodium is in my drug tier as a generic for plavix, is this true?
I usually purchase Generic Plavix at Gomedstore online Pharmacy
They offer trusted quality drug with a reasonable price online and their service is also very good!!
Another source is Planet Drugs Direct in Texas. They sell it for $88 for 180 if you look in the right search pages for that price. Trustworthy service and the pills from Mumbai India work well. Sky
I been been buying generic plavix online from www.4rx.com for years now. I buy 180 tablets for about 64.00 plus shipping. I believe it comes to about 50 cents a pill. Each pill comes in a foil wrapper and from a company CIPLA which has been in business since 1900. If you have an opportunity please tell them I referred you. My user name is Martinyb on their site. Good luck to you. I had a cardiac arrest in 2004 at age 51 and another heart attack at age 56 in 2008. I work out daily, try and eat right and take the meds...I'm still alive here in Los Angeles and appreciate everyday....Best of luck to you too.....Marty B.
Hi Marty, do you feel that it is the same as Plavix? I had double by-pass two yrs ago and have to be on Plavix the rest of my life...Since my husband is disabled and I don't make a lot of money at my job, I have a hard time purchasing my Plavix and have missed a month quite often..You can reply to me at

is there a generic for plavix
The date today is 11/04/2010. I had a heart attack and The doctors prescribed Plavix which is $80.00 for 30 pills. Too much for me and then I was told there is no generic nor equivalant for Plavix. I reserched this and figured the Doctors were just not telling the truth. Maybe they get a kick back. Anyway I got them through Bigmountaindrugs.com. They get them from India. The company that makes them is CIPLA LDT. I get 200 pills for around $ 60.00. I have been using them for 6 months now and it may be a life time prescription. Also, A BIB FYI, the patent Brystal Myers holds on these expire some time in 2011 so if you need it, you now have imfo/
