Blood Clot Taking
How do I know if pains are lingering from former PE or if they are new blood clots taking 20mg xarelto now HR stays in 80s now and more palps?
Can be tough to tell: If your symptoms persist, it may be more clots. I would not ignore these symptoms because, if you have more clots on Xarelto, you may need other treatments. Good luck! ...Read more

Yes.: There are some patients for whom Coumadin (warfarin) does not adequately anticoagulate (thin the blood), and thus these patients may require alternative medications. Discuss with a hematologist to gain a better understanding as to what options exist. Sometimes this is an indication for placement of a filter device to catch a DVT from becoming a fatal pulmonary embolism (pe). ...Read more

Taking 200 mg daily of prometrium as I a fully deficient in it but make plenty of estrogen am I at high risk for blood clot for taking it?
Other risks involved: Not only blood clot formation, you need to follow up closely with your doctor, not to exceed the recommended dosage/duration, which is about 10-12 days every month with close monitoring and careful not to interact with other medicines you are on. Most important though is to avoid the other risk factors as smoking, hypertension, being overweight, having abnormal lipid profile etc, best wishes ...Read more
Is there a lower risk for blood clots when taking Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo? Safer than Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol)? Can't seem to find how much hormone is in Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo
Clot risk: The risk of clot is slightly higher in YAZ (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol) do due the type of progesterone in it. It has nothing to do with the dose really. If for example you had a clot on Ortho tri cyclen, no one would suggest you use tri cyclen lo instead. Blood clot risk also lowers after 3 months of use just like it does for menopausal women on hormone replacement therapy. Every OCP in the US is low dose except for one. ...Read more

If you are a smoker, have a medical condition or are over age 35, you should ask your doc! ...Read more
Started spotting & a small blood clot after taking 1st Z pack dose 500mg to treat respiratory infection- 10 days early for period Side effect? Call MD?
Coincidence: It is really unlikely that you're taking the antibiotic and having early bleeding are linked. It's more likely that the respiratory infection might be making your body want to shed the lining, but this is not concerning and I expect that you will be fine even if this bleeding leads to an early full period ...Read more
Have a blood clot above left knee lots of pain and stiffness in both itching inside my right leg can you get another blood clot even though taking war?
Possibly: The ability of warfarin to prevent or treat a blood clot is partly based upon how well it is keeping your blood at a therapeutic level, which is usually checked with a blood test called prothrombin time. Diet can also have a large impact on the ability of the warfarin to work. If you have any concern, I would be rechecked for a dvt. In some cases, clots can be surgically removed (throne tony) ...Read more
I been on my period for two months in between spotting and blood clots I been taking this fertility blend to help but I want to have kids some day?

I suggest seeing a specialist who knows about herbs and supplements to get the right combo. Naturopathic physicians are a good start. You should still be able to get pregnant in the future. Best wishes. ...Read more

Clotting factors: Liver makes specific proteins called clotting factors which when stimulated with injury to a blood vessel (cut, blunt trauma) results in a domino effect and blood clots to seal the bleeding vessels. Some have a genetic lack of certain factors which make them bleed, or others more susceptible to forming blood clots. ...Read more
"Blocked Pipes": Blood contains proteins which cause the blood to congeal when outside of blood vessels. This can be life-saving following trauma but can be life-threatening if the clotting mechanism is activated inside a blood vessel, leading to the obstruction of flow to the brain (stroke), heart muscles (mi), or lungs (pulmonary emboli), to name a few. Rx hinges on opening the blockage asap+/-blood thinners. ...Read more
Type?: You don't describe the clot - a DVT may need anti-coagulants, while a superficial venous clot will not. Arterial clots, or cardiac clots will also need treatment, Cosmetic clots (derm) will resolve on their own. Will try to answer more detail if you can offer more information ...Read more

Whenever a clot is formed in the body over time the body will naturally reabsorb it. Sometimes doctors give medication to prevent the blood from being able to clot easily. ...Read more

Blood clot causes: We doctors are taught to remember virchow's triad: blood vessel injury, stasis, and hypercoagulability. The first refers to things like surgery and catheters, the second to slow blood flow due to immobility or compression on a blood vessel, and last to things that make the clotting system more active like birth control pills and hereditary disorders that make the blood more likely to clot. ...Read more
