First symton was shortness of breath.  Had 95% blocked artery and had stent put in a little over a week ago.  Now experiencing shortness of breath no pain. On Plavix can this be the cause.

Hi Adrealtor,


A possible side effect of Plavix is breathing difficulty.  I recomend discussing your symptoms with your physician.


All the best,
