December 28, 2016, Acknowledgement letter from the FDA.

Public Citizen petitions the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to require that the labels of the anti-clotting drug clopidogrel (Plavix) and the diabetes drug repaglinide (Prandin) warn doctors and patients that taking the drugs together can cause dangerously low blood sugar levels. The petition also asks that the drugs’ labels include a statement that the two drugs should never be taken together under any circumstances.
