Avoid All Alcohol Baby Aspirin
Not necessarily: Not necessarily. Alcohol in moderation (1-2 glasses of wine or 1 beer) a day should not cause you any problems. Alcoholism or heavy binge drinking can sometimes lower your platelets (the cells in your body that help clot your blood). Aspirin works by also inhibiting platelets, so together this could lead to bleeding problems. ...Read more

Due to aspirin's effects on the platelets, as long as you take it at a similar time each day, the particular time of day does not have such a great impact.
Control of other risk factors such as smoking cesstion and blood pressure control will also be expected to significantly impact the likelihood of future tia/stroke events. ...Read more

rheumatologist/hema: Depending on the specifics of your clotting problem and your medical history you should probably avoid oral contraceptives (increased clotting risks), and taking precautions for venous blood clots (avoid immobility for long periods, frequent stops to move around on car and plane trips.

Not really: Aspirin at low doses has the ability to decrease the stickiness of your platelets and is often used to reduce chances of a stroke or heart attack.

At the dose being: Given (81mg), anemia is not a concern. Asa is a suicide inhibitor for cyclooxygenase, an enzyme that is essential for producing prostanoids that impact platelet function.

Bleeding.: Only theoretical fetal risks exist for the consumption of 81 mg of Aspirin daily periconceptionally and during the pregnancy - namely a small increase in the incidence of fetal gastroschisis. My main concern would be the slightly increased risk of placental abruption and definite increased risk of any bleeding because of platelet inhibition. Aspirin may prevent fetal growth restriction and pree. ...Read more

Give your baby Acetaminophen (tylenol), then see your doctor if the fever persists. ...Read more
Probably: It depends on the indication, of course. Stents, especially drug eluting stents ("medicated" stents) which are one of the major indications for plavix, (clopidogrel) require dual anti-platelet therapy, thus Aspirin is routinely given with Plavix (clopidogrel) and Plavix (clopidogrel) alone is inadequate and risky. ...Read more
Depends: Assuming you tolerate low dose Aspirin and have had no event or multiple risk factors, epidemiologic data would suggest that men may benefit in their 40s, women in their 50s, for the anti-platelet protective effect on anti-atherothrombotic plaque conversion from stable to vulnerable lesions. If, however, you've already had an event (secondary prevention), then Aspirin is useful at any age. ...Read more
