Fish oil and aspirin taken together in pregnancy?

Fish oil and aspirin taken together in pregnancy?

Why?: You are 38 and pregnant. It is unlikely that you have heart disease. There is no data for Aspirin for primary prevention (before you have heart disease) only for secondary prevention (after your first heart attack or stent). There is less data for fish oil. I would avoid taking anything shaped like a pill during pregnancy beyond a prenatal vitamin without a compelling reason. ...Read more

What is better to take fish oil or baby aspirin I'm 69 years old.

In pills: These have different effects. The fish oil presumably helps with the circulation and health of the heart. The baby aspirin is just to prevent easy blood clotting and can aid in preventing strokes.

Talk to your doctor: Cod liver oil contains fish oil, omega-3 fatty acids. They lower triglycerides, but also have a slight anticoagulant effect. You are already on anticoagulants, so there is the possibility of too much if you add the cod liver oil. Don't do it without your doctor's permission. ...Read more

Could taking low dose aspirin and mega fish oil daily cause orthostatic hypotention to become worse?

Could taking low dose aspirin and mega fish oil daily cause orthostatic hypotention to become worse?

Potentially the fish: oil could result in loose stools and intravascular volume depletion with resultant orthostatic hypotension however seeing that you are taking medications for Parkinson's it is MUCH MORE LIKELY to be due to the Parkinson's than anything else you are taking or doing. Wear good quality thigh high support stockings and see if that helps. Florinef (fludrocortisone) or Midodrine could potentially be helpful too. ...Read more

Can i take fish oil supplements while on prinivil (lisinopril) and aspirin?

Can i take fish oil supplements while on prinivil (lisinopril) and aspirin?

Yes, with care: Using fish oil along with Prinivil (lisinopril) and Aspirin is usually safe. But please tell your doctor you're taking it. Omega-3 supplements can make your platelets less sticky, which is a good thing in many ways. However, in some people fish oil's effects along with other medicines being used can lead to decreased clotting -- or more bruising. That's why i suggest care, until you see how it affects you. ...Read more

How much inflammation does aspirin and fish oil really reduce in high risk patients with cad? Does it reduce plaque buildup?

How much inflammation does aspirin and fish oil really reduce in high risk patients with cad? Does it reduce plaque buildup?

Depends: Nothing much can make up for the typical horrible American diet and lack of exercise, and smoking. Pills without lifestyle changes can help some but there is clinical evidence that a 10% fat diet does REDUCE plaque over time. See the Dean Ornish, M.D. diet plan. And do what your doc recommends medicine-wise. ...Read more

Does daily low dose aspirin, fish oil, and turmeric coupled with a couple light beers thin the blood too much? Affect rbc?

Aspirin thins blood: Aspirin is the only one from what you mentioned that thins the blood. From what i know, turmeric fish oil and beer do not cause blood thinning. So if you take all these there shouldn't be an additive blood thinning effect. Enjoy ! ...Read more

I'm 23, would it be okay to take calcium, fish oil, multivitamin, and a baby aspirin daily for prevention and lower risks of any diseases?

I'm 23, would it be okay to take calcium, fish oil, multivitamin, and a baby aspirin daily for prevention and lower risks of any diseases?

No data: No data has shown any of those will change the incidence of developing any disease in your age group (or for decades to come). You simply add cost and complicate your life. If you want to stay healthy, stay normal weight or reduce if over, eat a balanced, nutritious diet, don't smoke, and get daily exercise. Maintain positive mental health & keep busy.

My family history in general have heart problems. They want me to take a baby aspirin but refuse is this bad? I do take fermented cod liver oil 1 gram

You're only 24?: There has never been a study that has shown benefit in men or women in your age range who take aspirin for primary prevention. Unless there's more in your history that has not been revealed, I would agree with you. (what makes you think fermented cod liver oil is beneficial and has no potential for harm?) ...Read more

Taking low dose aspirin for CVE and stroke prevention. Also on 80mg of Lipitor (atorvastatin). Taking fish oil also. Am I at serious risk for hemorrhagic stroke?

Excellent Question: ScottK, you ask an excellent question. There is some evidence that having too low a blood cholesterol level can be dangerous as well as high cholesterol. Blood vessel walls need cholesterol for flexibility, and if two low can become fragile. Although the likelihood of a problem is low, I would discuss with your doctor. You might also want to think about adding Co-Q10. Take care and stay well! ...Read more

Having colonoscopy next week. Is it critical that low dose aspirin, fish oil, multivitamin, and vitamin C be discontinued 7 days in advance?

Having colonoscopy next week. Is it critical that low dose aspirin, fish oil, multivitamin, and vitamin C be discontinued 7 days in advance?

Yes If Told Not: The Aspirin and fish oil both can thin your blood and cause bleeding issues during the procedures. Vitamins often have dyes in them that can discolor the tissues and make it difficult to accurately assess any conditions that might be present. Do you really want to go through the prep for the test to get false or inaccurate results? Follow the doctor's orders! ...Read more
