    I've been on Plavix for 5 years after an ischemic brainstem stroke.  I've become much healthier and want to get off the Plavix.  No one seems to know how, including its manufacturer.   I phoned the company and a "counselor" told me to ask my doctor.  My doctor told me to phone the company!   The manufacturer's counselor told me "no studies have been done to get off it."   Okay, that means Plavix has  a captive, participating population for life???   Good marketing strategy, no?  Has anyone out there weaned off and beat the 90-day rebound effect??

    Thanks for the info.
