Answer

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,
