Dear,

Thanks for all these additional details.

I can understand your concern.

Well, The dose of plavix is 75 mg once daily though the loading dose is 4 tablets of 75 mg each.

I understand that you have taken two 75 mg pills of Plavix within two hours apart.

This would be tolerated by your system. No need to get panic.

You would not develop any complications.

The bleeding complications occur when the large doses are taken at 1500mg/kg body weight.

You can check with this link-

As such you would not develop any complication. No need to get panic.

You are safe.

Hope this helped.
