It is commonly sold under the brand name Plavix, and its mechanism of action is to prevent the atypical clumping of platelets together which can lead to clotting
Blood thinning drugs, as their very clear name suggests, are utilized in cases where the a person is at increased risk for the formation of blood clots, has a condition that creates dangerous blood clots, or has certain types of heart problems
Aspirin has long been a mainstay of preventing abnormal blood clotting. It works by reducing the tendency of platelets to form together when not necessary, and is still considered a treatment option for some people.
