One of the great things about Plavix is that you are not required to change your diet when staring Plavix treatment. Unlike blood thinners, Plavix does a great job preventing blood clots without any negative side effects.

R. Skelley's answer is inaccurate and potentially dangerous. All meds have side effects...and plavix has quite a few including possible bleeding. People should read about side effects on all meds they're taking. As for cranberry juice, it contains salycylic acid which is a derivative of aspirin...and could interact and cause bleeding.
