There is more than one medicine for plaque
Is this heart disease?
What medicine is he on?
I have to train and test in cardiology for my board certification.
In addition I have advanced functional cardiology training.
I need to know what medicine you are talking about.
There is no one more highly trained than myself on the site at this moment.
Can you tell me the medication?
It would not be recommended that this be stopped.
The left circumflex is a serious artery.
He should have a stent.
Perhaps he already has a stent?
In this case he should have been on clopidogrel and aspirin for a year.
It might, after that, get away with just aspirin.
Stopping both would be risky.
It also depends on the type of stent.
If he has not stent, then that needs to be considered.
I am board certified in integrative medicine, internal medicine, trained in functional medicine and homeopathy, etc. I am here daily: use my request link as needed and “for Dr. Thomas” in the question title. Give that link to friends, family, associates, etc. Find me as needed for correct, safe and accurate answers
The type of stent depends on the degree of blockage, the postition, and what the surgeon uses most frequently with most success.
He would need to stay on aspirin.
Please make sure he sees a cardiologist to review his angiogram.

You are welcome.
Please click a positive at the scale at the top of the page.
This is how we are paid.
If he has no problems and moderate blockage, he might not require a stent.
Chest pain, angina, etc.
I have not seen a single positive rating for any of my answers. we are only paid per positive.
And we are beyond the scope of the original question.
Please do that on the rating scale, and I will be happy to follow up.
