Specializes in Internal Medicine

Yes: TPA (alteplase) is not contraindicated with people taking aspirin, NSAIDs or antiplatelet drugs (dipyridamole, ticlopidine, clopidogrel). TPA (alteplase) is a contraindicated in people on warfarin whose INR is greater than 1.7. Use of low molecular weight heparin in the past 24 hours is also a contraindication.
