Advantages of Clopidogrel

Clopidogrel, unlike blood pressure and cholesterol medicines, works to help keep platelets from sticking together and forming clots.

Clopidogrel comes in round, pink tablets (75mg). Each dose should be taken with a full glass of water. It has no importance whether you take the tablet with food or without it. The recommended daily dose of Clopidogrel is 75 mg once daily. Seek emergency medical attention if you think you have used too much of this medicine. Symptoms of a Clopidogrel overdose may include vomiting, feeling exhausted or short of breath, and blood in your stools or vomit.
