Resource Summary

Clinical Question:
Do proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) interact with clopidogrel to reduce its cardiovascular (CV) benefit?

Bottom-line:
Studies are inconsistent about the impact of PPIs on clopidogrel effectiveness^ though most higher-quality studies show no interaction. The association with CV risk seen with PPI use is likely due to underlying comorbidities rather than a true drug interaction.
