Should i take an aspirin a day? I have hypertension and cholesterol. I'm 50.

Should i take an aspirin a day? I have hypertension and cholesterol. I'm 50.

Prevention: In view of your age, history of elevated cholesterol and hypertension, i feel that daily aspirin(81mg) is some protection against heart attacks and strokes(not hemorrhagic stroke though). Of course you shouldn't take Aspirin if there are contraindications such as allergy, ulcers, bleeding tendencies, etc. And your blood pressure should be controlled. ...Read more

YES.: Asprin is good, but if you don't like the hypertension and what it may do to you, you'll become significantly less obese. Years ago in medical school i learned that it takes a mile of capillaries to support a pound of fat tissue. Think of that: every time the heart beats... Time t take being kind to yourself seriously. ...Read more

Conn's and spiro: In general I recommend Conn's do the DASH diet 14 day trial (Chap 9 in Book) before anything else or before switching to Eplerenone as low Na K diet minimizes need 4 other BP meds including spiro.

Is rivaroxaban xalerto safe and good drug for preventing stroke in Afib compared to aspirin and plavix together in72 yr man with hypertension,s.cr1.56?

Is rivaroxaban xalerto safe and good drug for preventing stroke in Afib compared to aspirin and plavix together in72 yr man with hypertension,s.cr1.56?

Xalerto is best: His CHA2DS2-VASc score is 2 (age and presence of hypertension). All studies have concluded that the benefit from anticoagulation significantly exceeds the risks for almost all AF patients with a score of 2 or more. Xalerto will more effectively reduce his risk of stroke and won't increase his risk of bleeding. ...Read more

Bp 140/66 , 28 weeks pregnant with twins and chronic hypertension,  took atenalol and aspirin today is this Bp normal?

That depends: On what your blood pressure measurements have been prior. If this is much higher than it had been (and I suggest you repeat that) then you need to call your OB to be more closely monitored. If you have headache, blurred vision, nausea/vomiting and sudden swelling of face hands or feet, you need to be evaluated immediately. Notify your OB right now if you have these symptoms and then go to L and D ...Read more

My mom is 72 yrs old, has history of hypertension and high cholesterol. She has been taking baby aspirin, but she's been bruising. Can she stop?

My mom is 72 yrs old, has history of hypertension and high cholesterol. She has been taking baby aspirin, but she's been bruising. Can she stop?

Aspirin: This is really something that should be discussed with her primary care doctor who recommended the baby asa since there might be an appropriate reason to continue this with hypertension and high cholesterol. Bruising is unsightly but not dangerous. ...Read more
