Side Effects Of Incorrect Dosage Of The Drug Clopidogrel?
Hello my mother’s age 47, she was undergoing cardiac treatment and was given obay clopidogrel at a dose of 1x 1 day, but she once had one drink twice a day. Is that okay?
Good evening, thanks for the question
Clopidogrel is an anti-platelet aggregation drug used to prevent blood clots from forming in medical conditions such as angina-specific chest pain, peripheral arterial disease, or stroke. The side effect of using this drug is the risk of bleeding. This type of drug if consumed exceeds the dose given, the content of active drug substances in the blood will be higher thereby increasing the risk of fatal bleeding. If after taking this drug the patient complains of spontaneous bleeding or bleeding that is difficult to stop, or there is urine or feces blood then it is better to do further consultation with a doctor to get adequate treatment.
That's all, hope you can help.
