Answer

In a study by Hsu et al, combining esomeprazole and clopidogrel reduced the recurrence of peptic ulcers in patients with atherosclerosis and a history of peptic ulcers more than the use of clopidogrel alone. [63] This combination did not influence the action of clopidogrel on platelet aggregation.
