Hello clawka, Avoid drinking alcohol while taking Plavix. Alcohol may increase your risk of bleeding in your stomach or upper intestines and as such with aspirin it is contraindicated and as along with beer/alcohol, aspirin will cause serious side effects. Visit this page for complete information about plavix: http://www.rxlist.com/plavix-drug.htm. Beer as such is not advised for him as he had 2 strokes. He has to exercise regularly and maintain proper BMI. Take care!
