For the prevention of thrombotic complications, clopidogrel is similar in efficacy to ticlopidine and is not associated with neutropenia.

The active constituent of this medicine behaves as a prodrug with anticoagulatory properties that is broken down by CYP450 enzymes to its active metabolite that prevents adenosine diphosphate (ADP) from binding to its platelet P2Y12 receptor. This inhibits the ADP-mediated activation of the glycoprotein GPIIb/IIIa complex, which in turn inhibits coagulation.
