ABSTRACT
The article discusses a study on the clinical interaction between omeprazole and clopidogrel in patients undergoing dual anti-platelet therapy (DAPT). The author states that omeprazole does indeed reduce gastrointestinal (GI) bleeding in patients on DAPT. The author also remarks that, in terms of cardiovascular events, omeprazole and clopidogrel does not suggest a clinically meaningful interaction.
