I had several TIAs about seven years ago as a direct result of having my Levothyroxine reduced by a third. I have been on Clopidogrel ever since and it is playing havoc with my stomach even though I am on PPIs (Lansoprazole). I am now on a higher dose of Thyroxine again, and I would like to think that the problem will not recur.
I would really like to stop taking the Clopidogrel.
Has anyone any suggestions for how I can do this? Is there any way that I can find out if my blood would clot if I should have AF which was probably the cause of the TIAs? My doctor is quite happy to just let me take this stuff forever but it is starting to make me more and more ill.
What kind of test could I have done myself to check my blood clotting?
Thanks for any help you can give me. I know it's difficult at the moment to get responses because the site is not running as smoothly as we had hoped - I'm on another forum and have experienced the difficulties.
