What Does Warning Mean For Clinicians With Patients On Clopidogrel?

Slide 34

December 2011

The FDA did not clarify what this warning meant for patients or clinicians. Should all patients on clopidogrel be tested or just new patients? Perhaps only patients with an adverse event while on clopidogrel should be tested or maybe all patients should be screened with a platelet function test first and the ones deemed resistant could go on to genetic testing. I sent this question along with several other questions to the FDA to the email address they provided in their boxed warning bulletin.
