I've only been on Clopidrogel since August, 2019. 

I think its too soon to give a proper evaluation. I hope this will only be a six-month trial period.

That’s good then.  I think I’m on it for life?  Also taking Artorvastatin.  Be interested to know how it affects you?  I try and walk twice a week which helps.  I get freezing cold feet in winter.

I don't like taking Clopidogrel and would prefer to take just Aspirin. Hoping my Neuro Surgeon will take me off it after getting the results of my recent angiogram.

I had a brain aneurysm operation in August 2019. I was put on both by my Neuro Surgeon who hopes to take me off this year, unless another operation is needed. I have low platelet count at the moment so constantly having blood tests.
