Drug Mode of Action ::
Clopidogrel inhibits adenosine diphosphate (ADP) from binding to its receptor sites on the platelets and subsequent activation of glycoprotein GP IIb/IIIa complex thus preventing fibrinogen binding, platelet adhesion and aggregation.
Drug Interactions ::
Co-admin with NSAIDs may increase the risk of stomach and intestinal bleeding. High-dose clopidogrel may lead to increased warfarin levels thus increasing the risk of bleeding. High-dose clopidogrel may also inhibit P450 (2C9), thus interfering with the metabolism of phenytoin, tamoxifen, torasemide, fluvastatin and some NSAIDs. Avoid concurrent use of drugs that inhibit CYP2C19, including omeprazole, esomeprazole, cimetidine, fluconazole, ketoconazole, voriconazole, etravirine, felbamate, fluoxetine, fluvoxamine and ticlopidine.
