Is is safe to cut a clopidogrel 75 mg tab in half to take 1/2 dose instead of the whole dose? My Mom is just not sure she wants to be taking this type of medication so she'd like to only take 1/2 tab.
Can you safely take 1/2 clopidogrel 75 mg tab?

Half will do nothing. She has to take it all or not at all. Has she discussed her need for it with her dr? He must have had a good reason to order it. It is coated and cannot be cut or crushed either.
