I had to stop my aspirin for surgery on tuesday. Is there such thing as aspirin withdrawl? Because I have been constipated since i stopped.

Not perfect: Aspirin is not addicting nor can cause physical or physiologic dependence. Withdrawals anyway would cause more diarrhea than constipation due to hyperactivity. Eat more fibers. I don't see calcium channel blockers for hypertension in your medicines which can cause constipation. ...Read more

Does aspirin cause asthma or just make it worse if it exists?

For some: Probably up to 10% of the patients with severe persistent asthma may have aspirin-exacerbated-respiratory disease.. Severe asthma may be triggered on this group with the common nsaids (cox 1). It is likely the genetic make-up in a person that has made him sick from taking nsaids. Thus the answer would be that NSAID per se triggers but not causes asthma which would go on even without nsaids. ...Read more

What would cause a low protime level in a 43yr old if you are taking one adult baby aspirin a night?

What would cause a low protime level in a 43yr old if you are taking one adult baby aspirin a night?

Unclear question: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, low protime is usually not a pathological issue. Unless by low you mean prolonged protime. It would have been helpful to have your INR. It would be prudent to discuss the matter with your doctor. ...Read more

If i took aspirin 75mg 30 hours prior to a d dimer could it cause false negative? had neg today but worrying

No: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, a negative D-dimer test is good indication of lack of clots in the blood system. Aspirin taken 30 hours prior would not cause a false negative.

No big issue: For years we used aspirin for days at a time for pain and fever reduction in kids, but quit in the 80's after it was associated with liver failure after chickenpox or flu. A single dose in your 4 year old during his usual life is unlikely to matter at all. You might use the experience to increase safeguards against self medication or toxic ingestion. ...Read more
