This report is seriously misleading, in that it ignores the proven superiority of warfarin (Coumadin) compared to the combination of aspirin plus Plavix in preventing strokes in patients with atrial fibrillation.
The combination of aspirin plus Plavix was compared to Coumadin in another part of the same study noted in the article. This part of the study (called ACTIVE-W) had to be terminated prematurely because of the clear superiority of Coumadin in preventing strokes.
Thus, Coumadin anticoagulation remains the preferred treatment in these patients. In those who cannot or will not take Coumadin, aspirin plus Plavix should be considered.(Since this is new information, it has not been approved by the FDA or by expert panels who write treatment guidelines.

I can recommend a reputable online pharmacy
I figured it would be enough to give the pills a try and I was quite satisfied with the result. I hope this info will be of any help to the community.
I have used this medication since the late 80's for migraines and it works wonders. I have tried other medication and nothing works as well and fast as generic Aspirin.

I have used for about 3 years and find their products to be reliable and speedily delivered. The Support team are very promt and helpful in solving any issues that arise,caused by my errors not the company's. I was a little sceptical initially about buying generic products rather than brand names. However, the Mens' Health products I have bought have been equally as efficatious as the brand names at a fraction of the cost.
