Thank you for waiting.
I am very sorry for his problem.
It would be safer to skip it now.
Overdose would give more symptoms, risk of bleeding.
He can take the morning dose as usual.
I hope this information will be helpful.

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.

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.
