Comment:
I had 3 stents placed after having a heart attack in May 2013. I am taking 10mg Effient and 81mg aspirin daily. Seems to be working as a stress test has shown that the stents are open and working well. On the down side, I bruise very easily, sometimes for no apparent reason. I also have had several cuts that took quite a while to stop bleeding. Had a 10 hour nosebleed once - just a trickle li ... Show Full Comment
