    Hi Margaret,

     

    First, if you feel your physician is not being truthful to your husband, I encourage you to switch physicians.

     

    Second, I did some checking on the half-life of plavix and there was a wide variance in the information I found, anywhere from 5-11 days half-life.  I recommend discussing with his physician.

     

    All the best,
