Pharmachologic effect

Mode of action - antiaggregational.


Clopidogrel is a prodrug, one of the active metabolites of which is an inhibitor of platelet aggregation. Its active metabolite irreversibly binds to platelet ADP receptors and selectively inhibits the binding of ADP to platelet ADP receptors and subsequent activation of the GPIIb / IIIa complex by ADP, thereby suppressing ADP-induced platelet aggregation. Clopidogrel also inhibits platelet aggregation caused by other agonists by blocking the activation of platelets by the released ADP. Due to the irreversibility of clopidogrel binding to platelet ADP receptors, platelets remain immune to ADP stimulation for the remainder of their life span (about 7-10 days), and the restoration of normal platelet function occurs at a rate corresponding to the rate of platelet renewal.

Due to the fact that the formation of the active metabolite occurs with the isoenzymes of the cytochrome P450 system, some of which may be polymorphic or inhibited by other drugs, not all patients may have sufficient inhibition of platelet aggregation.

With a daily intake of clopidogrel at a dose of 75 mg, a significant inhibition of ADP-induced platelet aggregation is noted from the first day of administration, which gradually increases for 3-7 days and then reaches a constant level (when the equilibrium state is reached). In the equilibrium state, platelet aggregation is suppressed on average by 40-60%. After stopping the use of clopidogrel, platelet aggregation and bleeding time gradually return to the baseline level on average for 5 days.

Acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) Acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) has a different mechanism than clopidogrel and its complementary mechanism of antiplatelet action. ASA suppresses platelet aggregation due to irreversible inhibition of COX-1, due to this reduction in the formation of thromboxane A2, which is an inducer of platelet aggregation and vasoconstriction. This effect persists for the entire life span of platelets.

ASA does not change the inhibitory effect of clopidogrel on ADP-induced platelet aggregation, while clopidogrel enhances the effect of acetylsalicylic acid on collagen-induced platelet aggregation.

Both active substances in monotherapy and with simultaneous application are able to prevent the development of atherothrombosis in any localization of atherosclerotic vascular lesions, particularly in the lesions of the cerebral, coronary or peripheral arteries.

A clinical study of ACTIVE-A showed that in patients with atrial fibrillation who had at least one risk factor for vascular complications but who were unable to take indirect anticoagulants, clopidogrel in combination with ASA (compared with the use of only one ASA) reduced the frequency of combined Stroke, myocardial infarction, systemic thromboembolism outside the central nervous system or death from vascular causes, largely due to a reduction in the risk of stroke.

The advantage of taking clopidogrel in combination with ASA in comparison with the administration of ASA in combination with placebo was detected early and persisted throughout the study period (up to 5 years). Reduction of the risk of major vascular complications in the group of patients taking clopidogrel in combination with ASA was mainly due to a greater decrease in the incidence of strokes.

The risk of stroke of any severity with the use of clopidogrel in combination with ASA decreased, and there was a tendency to decrease the incidence of myocardial infarction in the group of patients taking clopidogrel in combination with ASA, but there was no difference in the frequency of thromboembolism outside the central nervous system or death from vascular Reasons. In addition, the use of clopidogrel in combination with ASA reduced the total number of days of hospitalization for cardiovascular disease.



Clopidogrel. With a single and course of oral administration at a dose of 75 mg / day, clopidogrel is rapidly absorbed into the intestine.

The mean Cmax of unchanged clopidogrel in plasma (approximately 2.2-2.5 ng / ml after ingestion of a single dose of 75 mg) is reached approximately 45 minutes after its single administration. According to excretion of clopidogrel metabolites by the kidneys, its absorption is approximately 50%.

ASA. After absorption, ASA undergoes hydrolysis with the formation of salicylic acid, Cmax of which in the blood plasma is reached in 1 h after administration of ASA. Due to rapid hydrolysis, after 1.5-3 hours after ingestion of the preparation, Coplanix® ASA in the blood plasma is practically not determined.


Clopidogrel. In vitro clopidogrel and its basic circulating inactive inactive metabolite bind reversibly to plasma proteins (by 98 and 94%, respectively), and this in vitro bond is unsaturated up to a concentration of 100 mg / l.


ASA weakly binds to plasma proteins and has a small Vd (10 L). Its metabolite, salicylic acid, binds well to blood plasma proteins, but its association with plasma proteins depends on its concentration in the blood plasma (nonlinear bonding). At low concentrations (<100 μg / ml), about 90% of salicylic acid binds to plasma albumin. Salicylic acid is well distributed in tissues and body fluids, including the central nervous system, breast milk and fetal tissues.


Clopidogrel is intensively metabolized in the liver. In vitro and in vivo, clopidogrel is metabolized along two metabolic pathways. The first way - metabolism is carried out with the help of enzymes (esterases), which leads to hydrolysis with the formation of an inactive metabolite - a derivative of carboxylic acid (accounting for 85% of circulating metabolites in the systemic bloodstream); The second way is metabolism with the help of several isoenzymes of the cytochrome P450 system. At the same time, clopidogrel is first metabolized to 2-oxo-clopidogrel, which is an intermediate metabolite.

Subsequent metabolism of 2-oxo-clopidogrel leads to the formation of an active metabolite of clopidogrel-thiol clopidogrel derivative. The active metabolite is formed predominantly with the help of CYP2C19 with the participation of some other isoenzymes, including CYP1A2, CYP2B6 and CYP3A4. The active thiol clapidogrel metabolite, which was isolated in in vitro studies, quickly and irreversibly binds to platelet receptors, inhibiting platelet aggregation.

After taking a loading dose of clopidogrel, 300 mg of active metabolite Cmax is 2 times greater than that after receiving a maintenance dose of clopidogrel 75 mg for 4 days, while its Cmax is approximately 30-60 minutes after taking clopidogrel.

ASA when taken in combination with clopidogrel quickly undergoes hydrolysis in blood plasma to salicylic acid with T1 / 2, 0.3-0.4 h for doses of ASC 75-100 mg. Salicylic acid is mainly subjected to conjugation in the liver with the formation of salicyluric acid, phenolic glucuronide and acyl glucuronide, as well as a large number of secondary metabolites.


Clopidogrel. Within 120 hours after ingestion of 14C-labeled clopidogrel, about 50% of the radioactivity is released by the kidneys and about 46% through the intestine. After a single oral dose of 75 mg of T1 / 2 clopidogrel is approximately 6 hours. After a single and course administration of clopidogrel, T1 / 2 of the main circulating inactive inactive metabolite is 8 hours.

ASA. When taking the drug, Coplavix® salicylic acid has T1 / 2 from the blood plasma, approximately 2 hours. Salicylate metabolism is saturable, and the overall clearance decreases at higher serum concentrations due to the limited ability of the liver to form salicyluric acid and phenolic glucuronide. After taking toxic doses of ASA (10-20 g), plasma T1 / 2 may increase to 20 hours. At high doses of ASA, the elimination of salicylic acid corresponds to kinetics of zero order (ie, the elimination rate depends on the plasma concentration) with T1 / 2 , Which is 6 hours or more. Renal excretion of unchanged active substance depends on the pH of the urine. With a pH increase of more than 6.5, the renal clearance of free salicylate increases from <5 to> 80%. After taking therapeutic doses in urine, approximately 10% of the dose in the form of salicylic acid is detected, 75% of the dose taken in the form of salicyluric acid, 10% of the dose taken is in the form of phenolic glucuronides and 5% of the accepted dose in the form of acyl glucuronides.


With the help of the CYP2C19 isoenzyme, both an active metabolite and an intermediate metabolite, 2-oxo-clopidogrel, are formed. The pharmacokinetics and antiplatelet effect of the active metabolite of clopidogrel in the study of platelet aggregation ex vivo (in vitro, the study of platelet aggregation in blood taken from a patient taking clopidogrel inwards, ie after the metabolism of clopidogrel in the body) varies depending on the genotype of the isoenzyme CYP2C19.

The allele of the CYP2C19 * 1 isoenzyme gene corresponds to fully functional metabolism, whereas the CYP2C19 * 2 and CYP2C19 * 3 isoenzyme genes are non-functional. Alleles of the CYP2C19 * 2 and CYP2C19 * 3 isoenzymes genes cause a decrease in metabolism in the majority of representatives of the Caucasoid (85%) and Mongoloid races (99%). Other alleles associated with lack or decrease in metabolism are less common and include, but are not limited to, the alleles of the CYP2C19 * 4, * 5, * 6, * 7, and * 8 isoenzymes. A patient with a low activity of the CYP2C19 isoenzyme will have the two alleles of the above gene with loss of function. Published frequency of occurrence in general populations of people with a phenotype with a low activity of the isoenzyme CYP2C19 is: in Caucasoid - 2%, Negroid - 4% and Chinese - 14%. To determine the patient's existing CYP2C19 isoenzyme genotype there are corresponding tests.

According to a cross-sectional study (40 healthy volunteers) and a meta-analysis of six studies (335 healthy volunteers taking clopidogrel), which included healthy volunteers with very high, high, intermediate and low activity of the CYP2C19 isoenzyme, no significant differences in the exposure of the active Metabolite and in the mean values of platelet aggregation inhibition (IAT) (induced by ADP) in healthy volunteers with very high, high and intermediate activity of CYP2C19 isoenzyme was not revealed. In healthy volunteers with a low activity of the CYP2C19 isoenzyme, the exposure of the active metabolite decreased compared to healthy volunteers with a high activity of the CYP2C19 isoenzyme.

When volunteers with low activity of the CYP2C19 isoenzyme took clopidogrel according to the scheme: 600 mg - loading dose / 150 mg - maintenance dose (600/150 mg), the exposure of the active metabolite was higher than when taking clopidogrel according to the scheme: 300/75 mg. In addition, IAT was similar to that in patients receiving clopidogrel with a higher metabolic rate with the CYP2C19 isoenzyme, taking clopidogrel under the 300/75 mg schedule. However, in studies with clinical outcomes, the dosage regimen of clopidogrel for patients in this group (patients with low activity of the isoenzyme CYP2C19) has not yet been established. This is due to the fact that the clinical trials conducted to date have not had a sufficient sample size to detect differences in the clinical outcome in patients with a low activity of the CYP2C19 isoenzyme.

Individual patient groups

The pharmacokinetics of the active metabolite of clopidogrel in certain groups of patients has not been studied.

Patients of advanced age. In elderly volunteers (over 75 years), when compared with young volunteers, there was no difference in platelet aggregation and bleeding time. Do not need dose adjustment for the elderly.

Children and teenagers. No data available.

Patients with impaired renal function. After repeated use of clopidogrel at a dose of 75 mg / day in patients with severe renal dysfunction (Cl creatinine - from 5 to 15 ml / min), inhibition of ADP-induced platelet aggregation was lower (25%) than in healthy volunteers, however The lengthening of bleeding time was similar to that of healthy volunteers taking clopidogrel at a dose of 75 mg / day.

Patients with impaired liver function. After daily administration of clopidogrel at a daily dose of 75 mg for patients with severe liver function abnormalities (greater than 9 on the Child-Pugh scale) for 10 days, the inhibition of ADP-induced platelet aggregation was similar to that of healthy volunteers. The mean bleeding time was also comparable in both groups.

Ethnicity. The prevalence of alleles of the CYP2C19 isoenzyme genes responsible for intermediate and decreased metabolism differs among representatives of different ethnic groups. There are limited literature data on their prevalence among representatives of the Mongoloid race, which does not allow to assess the clinical significance of the influence of the CYP2C19 isoenzyme genotypes on clinical outcomes. Based on the pharmacokinetics and metabolic peculiarities of both active substances of the Coplawix ® preparation, clinically significant pharmacokinetic interactions are not expected between them.

Pregnancy and breast-feeding

As a precaution, Coplavix® should not be taken during the first two trimesters of pregnancy, unless the woman's clinical condition requires treatment with clopidogrel in combination with ASA. Due to the presence of ASA in the drug, it is contraindicated in the third trimester of pregnancy. Animal studies did not reveal either direct or indirect adverse effects on clopidogrel during pregnancy, embryonic development, childbirth and postnatal development.

However, sufficient in terms of volume and controlled studies in pregnant women was not conducted. ASC has been shown to have a teratogenic effect, although it has been established in clinical studies that doses of ASA up to 100 mg / day, restricted in obstetrics and requiring specialized monitoring, have shown themselves to be safe.

Breastfeeding should be discontinued in the case of treatment with Coplavix®; Found that ASA is excreted in breast milk, and studies in rats have shown that clopidogrel and / or its metabolites are also excreted into the milk of lactating rats. Whether clopidogrel is released into human breast milk is unknown.

Side effects

The safety of clopidogrel in clinical studies has been studied in more than 44,000 patients, incl. More than 12,000 patients taking it for a year or more, and 30,000 patients taking clopidogrel and ASA concomitantly; In a clinical study of CURE, the safety of clopidogrel in combination with ASA was evaluated in more than 6,200 patients who took them for 1 year or more.

Drugs associated with risk of bleeding

There is an increased risk of bleeding due to the potential additive effect. Simultaneous use of 23 drugs associated with the risk of bleeding should be done with caution.


The safety of the combined use of clopidogrel, fibrin-specific or non-fibrin-specific thrombolytic agents and heparin was analyzed in patients with acute myocardial infarction.

The frequency of clinically significant bleeding was similar to that observed in the joint use of thrombolytic drugs and heparin with ASA. Due to the lack of clinical data on the joint use of Coplavix® and thrombolytic drugs, when combined, care should be taken (see "Special instructions").

Inhibitors of glycoprotein IIb / IIIa

Between the inhibitors of glycoprotein IIb / IIIa and the preparation of Coplavix®, pharmacodynamic interaction is possible, which requires caution when they are used together.


According to a clinical study conducted with the participation of healthy volunteers, when taking clopidogrel did not require a change in the dose of heparin, and did not change its anticoagulant effect. The simultaneous use of heparin did not alter the inhibitory effect of clopidogrel on platelet aggregation. Between the drug Coplawiks ® and heparin pharmacodynamic interaction is possible, which may increase the risk of bleeding, and therefore the joint use of these drugs requires caution (see "Special instructions").

Indirect anticoagulants

Simultaneous administration of Coplavix® and oral anticoagulants (warfarin) may increase the intensity of bleeding, and therefore the use of this combination is not recommended. Clopidogrel at a dose of 75 mg does not affect the pharmacokinetics of warfarin and does not change the value of INR in patients taking long-acting warfarin. However, simultaneous administration of warfarin with clopidogrel may increase the risk of bleeding due to the independent effect of these drugs on hemostasis.


In a clinical study conducted with the participation of healthy volunteers, the combined use of clopidogrel and naproxen increased latent blood loss through the gastrointestinal tract. Therefore, the use of NSAIDs, incl. Inhibitors of COX-2, in combination with the preparation of Coplavix® is not recommended (see "Special instructions").

Experimental evidence suggests that ibuprofen (with a single dose of 400 mg between 8 h and 30 min after the immediate administration of ASA at a dose of 81 mg in the immediate-release dosage form) can inhibit the effect of low doses of ASA on platelet aggregation . However, with irregular intake of ibuprofen, no clinically significant effects of it on the antiaggregant effect of ASA are expected.


Since SSRIs disrupt the activation of platelets and increase the risk of bleeding, simultaneous use of SSRI with clopidogrel should be carried out with caution.

Another combination therapy with clopidogrel

Strong and moderate inhibitors of the isoenzyme CYP2C9. Since clopidogrel is metabolized to its active metabolite in part by the CYP2C19 isoenzyme, it is expected that the use of drugs that inhibit the activity of this isoenzyme can lead to a decrease in the concentration of the active metabolite of clopidogrel. The clinical significance of this interaction is unknown. As a precaution, simultaneous use of clopidogrel and strong or moderate inhibitors of the CYP2C9 isoenzyme should be avoided. Strong and moderate inhibitors of the CYP2C9 isoenzyme are omeprazole, esomeprazole, fluvoxamine, fluoxetine, moclobemide, voriconazole, fluconazole, ticlopidine, ciprofloxacin, cimetidine, carbamazepine, oxcarbazepine, chloramphenicol. The simultaneous use of proton pump inhibitors with clopidogrel, which are strong or moderate inhibitors of the CYP2C19 isoenzyme (eg omeprazole, esomeprazole), is not recommended. If a patient still needs the use of proton pump inhibitors while taking Coplawix®, a proton pump inhibitor with little effect on the activity of the CYP2C19 isoenzyme, such as pantoprazole or lansoprazole, should be used.

Drugs that are substrates of the isoenzyme CYP2C8. Clopidogrel increased the systemic exposure of repaglinide in healthy volunteers. In vitro studies have shown that an increase in the systemic exposure of repaglinin is a consequence of the inhibition of the isoenzyme CYP2C8 by the glucuronide metabolite clopidogrel. Caution should be exercised while using clopidogrel and medications that are primarily excreted from the body by metabolism using the CYP2C8 isoenzyme (eg, repaglinide, paclitaxel).

A number of clinical studies with clopidogrel and other concomitant drugs were used to study the possible pharmacodynamic and pharmacokinetic interactions that showed:

- that when using clopidogrel together with atenolol, nifedipine or both these drugs taken simultaneously, clinically significant pharmacodynamic interaction was not observed;

- simultaneous use of phenobarbital, cimetidine and estrogens did not significantly affect the pharmacodynamics of clopidogrel;

- pharmacokinetic indices of digoxin and theophylline did not change when they were used together with clopidogrel;

- Antacid drugs did not reduce the absorption of clopidogrel;

- Phenytoin and tolbutamide can safely be used concomitantly with clopidogrel (CAPRIE study), although the data obtained from studies with human liver microsomes indicate that the carboxylic metabolite of clopidogrel can inhibit the activity of the CYP2C9 isoenzyme, which can lead to increased concentrations In the blood plasma of some drugs, for example, phenytoin, tolbutamide and certain NSAIDs that are metabolized by the CYP2C9 isoenzyme.

Another combination therapy with ASA

The interaction of ASA with the following drugs was reported:

- uricosuric drugs (preparations that promote the excretion of uric acid, benzbromarone, probenecid, sulfinpyrazone) - care must be taken since ASA can suppress their uricosuric effect due to competition with uric acid at the elimination level;

- Methotrexate, taken in doses of more than 20 mg / week, should be used with caution when combined with a preparation of Coplavix® (due to the presence of ASA in the formulation), because ASA can reduce the renal clearance of methotrexate, which in turn can increase its myelotoxic effect (see With caution);

- metamizole - with simultaneous application with ASA can reduce the effect of ASA on platelet aggregation. Therefore, this combination should be used with caution in patients taking a low dose of ASA for cardioprotective action;

-acetazolamide - caution should be exercised when using salicylates and acetazolamide simultaneously, because of the increased risk of developing metabolic acidosis;

- vaccine against varicella - it is recommended that patients do not take salicylates for 6 months after vaccination against chicken pox because During the disease with chicken pox, there were cases of development of Ray's syndrome after the intake of salicylates (see "Special instructions");

- levothyroxine - salicylates, especially at doses of more than 2.0 g / day, can inhibit the binding of thyroid hormones to carrier proteins and therefore lead to an initial transient increase in the concentrations of free thyroid hormones, followed by a decrease in their concentrations. Monitor thyroid hormone concentrations (see "Specific guidance");

- valproic acid - simultaneous application of valproic acid and salicylates may lead to a decrease in the binding of valproic acid to blood proteins and inhibition of valproic acid metabolism, leading to an increase in the total serum concentration of valproic acid and the serum concentration of its free fraction;

- tenofovir - simultaneous use of tenofovir, dizoproxil fumarate and NSAIDs may increase the risk of developing kidney failure;

- ACE inhibitors, anticonvulsants (phenytoin and valproic acid), β-adrenoblockers, diuretics, oral hypoglycemic agents - interactions of these drugs with ASA used in high (anti-inflammatory) doses are possible;

- ethanol - with the simultaneous use of ASA, the risk of bleeding increases with chronic use of large amounts of alcohol (ethanol). In addition, ethanol may increase the risk of gastrointestinal damage when applying ASA. Therefore, patients taking ASA should drink alcohol (ethanol) with caution (see "Special instructions").

Other interactions with clopidogrel and ASA

- ACE inhibitors, diuretics, beta-adrenoblockers, CCB, lipid-lowering drugs, coronary vasodilators, hypoglycemic drugs (including insulin), antiepileptic drugs, hormone replacement therapy and glycoprotein receptors blockers GPIIb / IIIa - in clinical studies on the use of clopidogrel in Combinations with ASC in maintenance doses (<325 mg), conducted with the participation of more than 30,000 patients, there were no clinically significant adverse interactions with these drugs.

Dosing and Administration

Inside, 1 time per day, regardless of food intake.

Adults and elderly patients with normal activity of the isoenzyme CYP2C19

Acute coronary syndrome (ACS). Treatment begins as soon as possible after the onset of symptoms. Reception of the drug Coplavix ® is started after taking a single loading dose of clopidogrel in combination with ASA in the form of separate drugs, namely clopidogrel - 300 mg and ASA - at doses of 75-325 mg / day, and with acute myocardial infarction with ST segment elevation - In combination with thrombolytics or without them. Since the use of higher doses of ASA is associated with an increased risk of bleeding, the recommended dosage for ASC should not exceed 100 mg. In acute myocardial infarction with ST segment elevation in patients older than 75 years, treatment with clopidogrel should begin without taking its loading dose. In patients with ACS without ST segment elevation (unstable angina or myocardial infarction without Q wave), the maximum beneficial effect is observed by the 3rd month of treatment. The optimal duration of treatment is not officially defined. Clinical trials support drug administration up to 12 months. In patients with acute myocardial infarction with elevation of the ST segment, treatment should be continued for at least 4 weeks.

Atrial fibrillation. Coplavix ® should be taken once a day, after the start of treatment with clopidogrel at a dose of 75 mg and ASA at a dose of 100 mg in the form of individual drugs.

Patients with genetically determined reduced activity of the isoenzyme CYP2C19

The low activity of the isoenzyme CYP2C19 is associated with a decrease in the antiplatelet effect of clopidogrel. The mode of application of higher doses of clopidogrel (600 mg - loading dose, then - 150 mg once a day daily) in patients with low isozyme activity CYP2C19 increases the antiplatelet effect of clopidogrel (see "Pharmacokinetics"). However, at the present time in clinical studies that take into account clinical outcomes, the optimal dosage regimen of clopidogrel has not been established for patients with its reduced metabolism due to the genetically caused low activity of the CYP2C19 isoenzyme.

Special patient groups

Children. Safety and effectiveness in children have not been established to date.

Patients of advanced age. In elderly patients, correction of the dosing regimen is not required.

Patients with hepatic insufficiency. The therapeutic experience of the drug is limited to use in patients with mild liver disease, which may have a tendency to develop hemorrhagic diathesis. Therefore, when using Coplavix® in such patients, care should be taken.

Patients with renal insufficiency. There is limited therapeutic experience with the drug in patients with mild to moderate renal failure. Therefore, when using Coplavix® in such patients, care should be taken.



Symptoms: an overdose of clopidogrel may lead to an increase in bleeding time with subsequent complications in the form of bleeding.

Treatment: when bleeding occurs, appropriate treatment is required. The antidote of clopidogrel is not established. If rapid correction of prolonged bleeding time is necessary, transfusion of platelet mass is recommended.


Symptoms: a moderate degree of overdose - dizziness, ringing in the ears, headaches, confusion and symptoms of the gastrointestinal tract (nausea, vomiting and pain in the stomach).

When there are signs of severe intoxication, severe acid-base disturbances occur. Initially, the resulting hyperventilation leads to the development of respiratory alkalosis. Then, respiratory acidosis develops as a consequence of the inhibitory effect of respiratory alkalosis on the respiratory center. Also, due to the presence of salicylates in the blood, metabolic acidosis develops. In addition, the following symptoms appear: hyperthermia and profuse sweating, leading to dehydration, motor anxiety, convulsions, hallucinations and the development of hypoglycemia. Oppression of the nervous system can lead to the development of coma, collapse and stopping breathing.

Lethal dose of ASA is 25-30 g. The plasma concentration of salicylate exceeds 300 mg / l (1.67 mmol / l) confirms the presence of intoxication. Overdose of salicylates, especially in young children, can lead to severe hypoglycemia and potentially fatal poisoning. In acute and chronic overdose of ASA, non-cardiogenic pulmonary edema may develop (see "Side effect").

Treatment: when diagnosing severe overdose, hospitalization is required. With moderate intoxication, one can try to induce vomiting, in case of failure, gastric lavage is indicated. After this, take inside (if the patient can swallow) or enter into the stomach through the probe activated charcoal (adsorbent) and salt laxative. For the purpose of forced alkalinization of urine, 250 mg of sodium bicarbonate is dripped intravenously for 3 hours under the control of the pH of the urine and the acid-base state to accelerate the elimination of salicylates. The preferred treatment for severe overdose is hemodialysis or peritoneal dialysis. If necessary, symptomatic treatment of other manifestations of intoxication is used.

Precautionary measures

Bleeding and blood disorders

In connection with the risk of bleeding and hematological adverse effects (see "Side effects"), if clinical symptoms that are suspect for bleeding occur during treatment, it is urgent to make a general clinical blood test, determine APTT, the number of platelets in peripheral blood, Functional activity of thrombocytes and to conduct other necessary studies.

The simultaneous use of the drug Coplavix® with warfarin is not recommended; This can increase the intensity of bleeding (see "Interaction").

Due to the presence of two antiplatelet agents in the preparation of Coplavix®, it should be used with caution in patients at increased risk of bleeding due to trauma, surgery or other pathological conditions, as well as in patients taking NSAID (including inhibitors COX-2), heparin, glycoprotein IIb / IIIa inhibitors, SSRIs and thrombolytics.

It is necessary to carefully monitor patients for the exclusion of signs of bleeding, incl. And latent, especially during the first weeks of treatment and / or after invasive cardiac procedures / surgical intervention.

If the patient is scheduled surgical intervention and there is no need for an antithrombotic effect, clopidogrel should be discontinued 5-7 days before surgery. Coplavix® increases bleeding time and should be used with caution in patients with diseases and conditions predisposing to the development of bleeding (especially bleeding from the gastrointestinal tract and intraocular hemorrhages).

Patients should be cautioned that they may need more time to stop bleeding when taking Coplavix® to stop bleeding and that if they have any unusual (localized or prolonged) bleeding, they should inform their doctor about it.

Before any future surgical intervention and before starting any new drug, patients should inform the doctor (including the dentist) about Coplavix® treatment.

Recently suffered ischemic stroke

It has been shown that in patients with recent transient ischemic cerebrovascular disorders or stroke having an increased risk of developing a recurrent ischemic complication, the combination of ASA and clopidogrel increases the possibility of developing large bleeding. Therefore, the use of Coplawix ® in such patients should be carried out with caution and only in the case of clinical benefit from its use.


Very rarely, after the use of clopidogrel (sometimes even briefly), there have been cases of TTP development, which is characterized by thrombocytopenia and microangiopathic hemolytic anemia, accompanied by neurological disorders, impaired renal function and fever. TTP is a potentially life-threatening condition requiring immediate treatment, including plasmapheresis.

Acquired hemophilia

The cases of development of acquired hemophilia with the use of clopidogrel were reported. With the confirmed isolated increase in APTT, accompanied or not accompanied by the development of bleeding, consideration should be given to the possibility of developing acquired hemophilia. Patients with a confirmed diagnosis of acquired hemophilia should be observed and treated by specialists in this disease and stop taking clopidogrel.

Atrial fibrillation (atrial fibrillation)

In patients with atrial fibrillation who had an increased risk of developing cardiovascular complications who could take indirect anticoagulants, the advantage of indirect anticoagulants compared to ASA monotherapy or the use of clopidogrel + ASA in reducing the risk of stroke was shown.

Cross-allergic and / or hematologic reactions between thienopyridines

Patients should collect anamnesis for the presence of previously allergic and / or hematologic reactions to other thienopyridine (such as ticlopidine, prasugrel), because they have a history. Reported the presence of cross-allergic and / or hematological reactions between thienopyridines (see "Side effects"). Tienopyridines can cause mild to severe allergic reactions (such as rash, angioedema) or hematologic reactions (such as thrombocytopenia and neutropenia). Patients who had previously experienced allergic and / or hematologic reactions to one of the drugs of the thienopyridine group may have an increased risk of developing similar reactions to another drug of the thienopyridine group. It is recommended to monitor cross-allergic and / or hematological reactions.

Functional activity of the isoenzyme CYP2C19

In patients with low metabolic activity of the CYP2C19 isoenzyme, when clopidogrel is used in the recommended doses, less active clopidogrel metabolite is formed and its effect on platelet function is reduced. Therefore, such patients with ACS or patients undergoing percutaneous coronary intervention and taking clopidogrel may have a higher incidence of cardiovascular events than patients with normal CYP2C19 isoenzyme activity. There are tests to determine the genotype CYP2C19, these tests can be used to select a therapeutic strategy. The use of higher doses of clopidogrel in patients with a low activity of the isoenzyme CYP2C19 is considered (see "Pharmacokinetics", Pharmacogenetics, Precautions, "Method of administration and dose"), but the efficacy and safety of the use of increased doses of clopidogrel in patients with low activity of the isoenzyme CYP2C19 Have not been established to date.

Renal insufficiency

Clopidogrel + ASA should not be used in patients with severe renal failure (see section "Contraindications"). The experience of using clopidogrel in patients with mild and moderate renal failure is limited. Therefore, in this group of patients the combination of clopidogrel + ASA should be used with caution.

Liver failure

Clopidogrel + ASA should not be used in patients with severe hepatic impairment (see "Contraindications"). The experience of using clopidogrel in patients with moderate liver disease, which may have a predisposition to bleeding, is limited. Therefore, in this group of patients, clopidogrel + ASA should be used with caution.

Caution required due to the presence of ASA in the formulation

- in patients with bronchial asthma or other allergic diseases in the anamnesis, t. They have an increased risk of developing hypersensitivity reactions;

- in patients with gout, t. Low doses of ASA increase the concentration of urate in the blood;

- there may be an association between ASA and the development of Reye's syndrome, a rare and life-threatening disease commonly seen in the prodromal period of infections in children, resulting in the development of encephalopathy and acute fatty liver disease and the rapid development of liver failure that can lead to death;

- Ethanol may increase the risk of GI loss when taking it against the background of ASA treatment. Therefore, care should be taken when using alcohol (ethanol) during the treatment of ASA (see "Interaction"). In addition, patients should be warned about the risk of bleeding due to chronic use of large amounts of alcohol (ethanol) during the administration of a combination of clopidogrel + ASA;

- Coplavix® should be used under close medical supervision in patients with glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency (G6FD) because of the risk of hemolysis (see "With caution", "Side effects");

- simultaneous administration of levothyroxine and salicylates should be avoided, especially at doses above 2 g / day (see "Interaction").

Effect on the digestive tract

Coplavix® should be used with caution in patients with gastric ulcer and duodenal ulcer or gastrointestinal hemorrhage in the history or patients with even minor symptoms from the upper gastrointestinal tract, which may be manifestations of ulcerative gastric lesions that can lead to gastric bleeding.

When treating Coplavix® at any time, there may be symptoms from the upper parts of the digestive tract, such as gastralgia, heartburn, nausea, vomiting and gastrointestinal bleeding. Despite the fact that in the treatment of Coplavix®, minor side effects from the gastrointestinal tract, such as dyspeptic disorders, are often found, the treating doctor always in these cases should exclude ulceration of the gastrointestinal mucosa and bleeding, even if there is no history of gastrointestinal pathology.

Patients should be informed of the symptoms of unwanted reactions from the GI tract and are instructed that, if they occur, they should immediately seek medical help.


The drug contains hydrogenated castor oil, which can cause gastric upset or diarrhea.

Influence on the ability to drive vehicles and engage in other potentially hazardous activities that require increased concentration and speed of psychomotor reactions. Usually Coplavix® does not significantly affect the ability to drive vehicles and engage in other potentially hazardous activities requiring increased concentration and speed of psychomotor reactions. However, in the case of unfavorable adverse reactions from the nervous system and the psyche (see "Side effects"), the concentration and speed of psychomotor reactions may decrease, which may hinder the employment of such activities. In such cases, the question of the possibility of engaging in potentially hazardous activities should be decided by the attending physician.
