Abstract

We report the case of a 49-year-old male who took an overdose of 1650 mg of clopidogrel with suicidal intend. The patient developed abnormalities of platelet aggregation, but never developed symptoms. Clopidogrel is a commonly prescribed drug. Reports of overdose of clopidogrel were very rarely reported in the literature.
