Can aspirin help my clots or prevent clots from happening?

Yes and no: Aspirin won, t dissolve clots that you already have, but there is some evidence it may play some small role in preventing them from increasing, though that is really what Heparin or Coumadin (warfarin) do.Asa has a role in preventing platelets from sticking together. If there is an irregularity in the lining of a vessel the body will think there is a cut and form a clot and occlude the vessel. Asa prevents it.

I know that aspirin should be avoided by people with vascular eds. Are there other drugs t avoid?

Anticoagulants: Vascular ehlers-danlos is a difficult disease to manage. Any of the medications that suppress platelet function, and the anticoagulants generally, need to be avoided. However, of the common over-the-counter medicines, aspirin's by far the most powerful anti-clotting agent; before you receive any other medicine that could make you bleed, your physician would discuss risk-benefit with you.

Yes: Hemophilia predisposes to bleeding due to lack of blood clotting factor. Asprin and nsaids such as Motrin can increase bleeding risk and should be avoided. It is best to consult your treating doctor for your unique situation.
