New Studies Show Popular Heartburn Medications Moderate the Effect of Taking Widely Prescribed Heart Drug
Date:5/6/2009

o address a related issue that has raised questions about the PPI/clopidogrel interaction, the researchers also looked at whether or not PPIs independently increase the risk of a CV event. The results of this study found that there was no independent effect from taking a PPI in the absence of clopidogrel. The study included 1,641 patients who had undergone a stent procedure but were not taking clopidogrel and compared CV event hospitalizations of patients on a PPI to those not taking a PPI. These findings were recently presented at the American Heart Association's Scientific Forum on Quality of Care and Outcomes Research in Cardiovascular and Stroke (QCOR).

"Our study, along with a 2007 FDA review and other researchers' work, provides strong evidence that PPIs do not independently raise cardiovascular risks for stent patients and further strengthens the observation that this interaction exists between PPIs and clopidogrel and impairs the effectiveness of the antiplatelet drug," said Epstein. "Given the totality of the evidence generated on this interaction and the known benefits of clopidogrel in reducing the risk of death, heart attack and stroke after coronary stenting, patients and their physicians should continue to trust in the use of this medication and consider a PPI only when clearly indicated."
