My doctor prescribed Plavix for me today, can anyone tell me if this drug has helped them? I have PADand he said it should help with the pain in my calves and thighs.

I have not been on it but have know others that it has helped. There is one thing please never stop taking the drug unless your dr. says so and instructs you how to taper off gradually because you will have dire consequences.

That sounds frightening, I was hesitant about taking it and kept it for 2 weeks. What do you mean by dire consequences?
