Hi Bob Cristobal,

 

You should ask your physician this question as he or she would be the best resource.  Here is a link on Effient.

Thanks Karen for your response.  My physician says I need to take it for a year.  I was just looking for concurrence.   Since my stent requires the effient, why does it not need it after a year's time?
