Melatonin in Melatonin
may interact with CLOPIDOGREL in Plavix
Chemicals in melatonin may reduce the stickiness of blood components called platelets. Platelets are partly responsible for forming blood clots that stop bleeding from injuries. When taken together with drugs like clopidogrel that also decrease the blood's ability to clot, supplemental melatonin may increase the risk of dangerous bleeding. Individuals who take both may need more frequent blood tests to make sure that blood is clotting properly. Those who experience problems, may need to stop taking supplemental melatonin until clopidogrel is discontinued.
