    Had a stent placed in my LAD for a 99% blockage in November 2015. Taking 90 mg 2x per day, along with an ACE inhibitor, beta blocker, baby aspirin and a statin. Easy to remember every 12 hours. I am experiencing no ill side effects and am back to my pre-procedure activities (bicycling, softball, treadmill, etc). I do get bruises easier but no bleeding issues to speak of.

    I started taking this drug in July after having 2 DES stents placed. For the next 30 days had a rash everywhere and severe roving joint pain. I had no other alternative because I couldn't take Plavix. I hung in there hoping the side effects would subside.
