Clopidogrel works by preventing a natural substance called adenosine diphosphate (ADP) from binding to its receptors on platelets. ADP is one of the chemicals in the body that cause platelets to clump together and start the process of blood clotting. As clopidogrel stops ADP from binding to platelets, it reduces the likelihood of clots forming in the blood.

Also tell your health care professional if you have any other types of allergies, such as to foods, dyes, preservatives, or animals. Although blood levels of clopidogrel may be higher in elderly patients than in younger adults, it is not expected to cause different side effects or problems in older people than it does in other adults.
