I took 20mg at 7pm and another at 9pm. I forgot I had taken it earlier.
There is not much you really can do by yourself. The effects of the double dosage will increase your chances of unusual bleeding temporarily but your body's blood clotting should return to its normally medicated level within 1 to 2 days. You can check for yourself on the US poison control line: 1-800-222-1222 (U.S.). They also have a handy web based webPOISONCONTROL tool that I would recommend you to use (I cannot give you the link as it is not allowed here) but google "US poison control" to access the tool. It will ask you some questions (you can be anonymous I think) and give you the best course of action to take if needed.
im asking the question!
This happened to me & I called poison control. There is nothing to do or worry about. It's not something they refer to the emergency room. You should just be extra careful to not bump or injure yourself. Suggested eating something. Resume regular dose next day and/or call your physician.
