Satin Drugs (Clopidog)

I was prescribed Clopidogrel as I was suspectabel for a stroke because of plaque build up in the arteries in the back of my head. A year ago I had prostate surgery to open up an inlarged prostate. The process Rezume didn’t do the job and I have to use cathatores to empty my bladder. I was hospitalized twice for infection in my bladder. The first was Ecoli infection. This last time I had blood in my urine and was a little weak and confused because of blood loss. They gave me a transfusion keeping me until my bladder was clear of blood. They stopped the Clopodgrepl.

People with these type of mutations most likely have increased CYP2C19 metabolism (rapid metabolizers).
Other drugs metabolized by [CYP2C19]), [Clopidogrel]CYP2C19/clopidogrel?genotypes=rapid-metabolizer),

I’m so sorry you have had these problems. I AM NOT A DOCTOR OR A HEALTH PROFESSIONAL. But I have a lot of experience with these types of problems Here are some things to try:
Statin drugs are getting a very bad rap right now and being off them is not really a terrible thing, in my view.

E-Coli infections are very common in the bladder. A daily dose of D-Mannose, which is basically a simple sugar you get from I-Herb or a good pharmacy, will keep the E-Coli from attaching to the bladder and will just send it out with the urine. Since you are catheterizing, I would think this is super important. 500g per day or more if you need it.

With regard to plaque build up in the arteries, a mix of Vitamin D and Vitamin K will work together to clear this plaque. 5000mg Vit D and 180 of Vit K is what I take from I-Herb.

Good luck and good health.
