Hello,

Myself Dr Josh. and I’m happy to help with your question today

Yes,you need to skip today's dosage.

Plavix (clopidogrel) helps to prevent platelets in your blood from sticking together and forming a blood clot.

As there is chance that you may have taken 75mg Plavix twice yesterday, you need to skip today's dose & take next dose tomorrow. This will prevent chances of overdosage.

Thank you.

Hope this helped

If you have any further question then you can ask me.

Please leave positive rating above the chat box so I can get credit for helping you today ,we only get after positive feedback.

Bonus is highly appreciated.

We are here to help you until you satisfy.

Kind Regards

Dr.Josh

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
