The US Food and Drug Administration has issued a warning that omeprazole (Prilosec) reduces the antiplatelet activity of clopidogrel (Plavix) by about 50%. However, the warning is based largely on ex vivo data. Preliminary results from a randomized clinical trial revealed no effect on cardiovascular outcomes when omeprazole was given with clopidogrel. We recommend that physicians continue to prescribe a proton pump inhibitor for patients receiving dual antiplatelet therapy who are at risk of gastrointestinal bleeding or have an indication for use of a proton pump inhibitor.
