Good news for heart patients on the drug "Plavix"

Posted: Updated:

Good news for heart patients on the drug "Plavix"…it's about to get cheaper. That's because today, the Food and Drug Administration approved generic versions of the drug, which means some competition now for selling that blood thinning drug.  Plavix helps reduce the risk for heart attacks and stroke, now that several pharmaceutical companies have received approval to make the generic version. It is expected to become much more affordable. Generic versions must pass the same quality control standards.
