I am on plavix 75 mg one time daily for an interior right

This answer was rated:

I am on plavix 75 mg one time daily for an interior right carotid dissection that occurred Sept 19, 2013. I was in the hospital until September 23. I think I just took accidentally another dose of the plavix. I counted the pills. I only have 15 left and I should have 17 left out of the 30 prescribed on Sept 23. I'm 71 y o 160 lbs

911Doctor :

I understand that this is distressing to you, but there is no need to worry

911Doctor :

There is no need to worry. I would simply take your next doses as prescribed

911Doctor :

you may be relieved to know that sometimes, with heart attack patients, we give up to 300mg of plavix at one time.

911Doctor :

There is no need to go to the ER

911Doctor :

If you choose to do so you might let your doctor know tomorrow

911Doctor :

I'm sure you have been informed of the side effects of plavice

911Doctor :

'plavix'

911Doctor :

911Doctor :

this is a very mild overdose, unintentional of course, and you should do fine.
