You can go to bed.

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks for the Query,

Taking an extra dose is Plavix is not that mortal. You need not bother. You might just need to drink a lot of water and fluids. The most feared complication or effect at this point is gastrointestinal bleeding or abnormal bleeding. With an extra dose (single dose), it is however rare for you to experience these effects, but however, just be watchful. Report to your doctor in case you feel serious upper abdominal pain or any bleeding from any region. This is however rare, but just be watchful.

You need not bother at this point, and simply be more watchful and careful as you take your drugs. No worries for now, be watchful and kind regards.

Feel free asking further follow up questions in case you have specific concerns. Kind regards.
