Changes to Clopidogrel tablet size


Due to a national manufacturing problem with 300mg Clopidogrel tablets and the majority of current stocks due to expire at the end of May. The medicines management team have had to obtain 75mg tablets as a replacement.

The adult dose for primary percutaneous coronary intervention is 600mg, so now will be EIGHT 75mg tablets.

Please remain vigilant to ensure the correct dose at all times and double-check all medications with a colleague where this is possible.
