Greetings:
I'm usually encamped at the MS site, but my husband has heart disease (FIVE STENTS smhair   smhair )
and takes various heart, blood pressure, diabetes and stomach meds (we are keeping the pharmaceutical industry alive at least). Today I saw a news item about folks with stents and also take Plavix AND Protonix are at greater risk for heart attacks. confused
Anyone know anything about this????

I dont know, but after I a heart attack, they also found out I had a terrible amount of acid in my stomach, after having three stents put in I was put on plavix and 2 protonix and 4 carafate pills a day plus all the other meds I take that was in 2003. I havent had another attack, knock on wood. Im surprised we arent all gone with all the meds they give us. I think at one time they had me on 22 pills a day.

Thanks all, for your replies! The article was in the 11/12 Boston Globe. You should find it at www.boston.com, click on the Globe link. It's an easy enough site to navigate. The study was conducted by Medco Health Solutions, Inc, a pharmacy benefits management company

My husband had the stents a few years ago. While in the recovery room he suffered a mild heart atach shocked and they had to go back in. He smokes, is too sedentary, and is due for another stress test next week. Keeping my fingers crossed!

Thanks again, I'll pass the info to my hubbie, and keep you all updated. Take care!
