You must be on Plavix and Aspirin. If so, yes both of those are used to avoid clots in patients with stent. You will most likely be on them for a year or longer. Hope this helps.

You are right these tablets will help open up the arteries. After you have a stent put in, something called "platelets aggregation" which means that these blood parts that are responsible for causing a clot and blocking arteries can get clogged at the point of where the stent was placed. Hence those anti-platelets such as Plavix and Aspirin are used.
Hope this helps! Please let me know if have any more questions.
