Seek emergency medical attention if you think you have used too much of this medicine.
Overdose symptoms may include cold feeling, unusual bleeding, trouble breathing, loss of balance or coordination, and seizure (convulsions).

Avoid sports or activities that could result in a bruising or bleeding injury. Use extra caution to avoid cuts when brushing your teeth or shaving.
Avoid drinking alcohol while taking ticlopidine. Alcohol may increase your risk of bleeding in your stomach or intestines.

Tell your doctor about all other medications you use, especially:
- antacids or cimetidine (Tagamet, Tagamet HB);
- digoxin (Lanoxin, Lanoxicaps);
- theophylline (Elixophyllin, Theo-24, Uniphyl); or
- phenytoin (Dilantin).
This list is not complete and there may be other drugs that can interact with ticlopidine. Tell your doctor about all your prescription and over-the-counter medications, vitamins, minerals, herbal products, and drugs prescribed by other doctors. Do not start a new medication without telling your doctor.
