Does tylenol (acetaminophen) thin blood like aspirin?

Can you tell me about the new way to thin blood other than aspirin or coumadin (warfarin)?

Can you tell me about the new way to thin blood other than aspirin or coumadin (warfarin)?

2 new drugs: The fda has approved 2 new drugs and more are on the way: Pradaxa (dabigatran) and xarelto (rivaroxaban). Key points: they're very expensive, don't require frequent blood samples for dosing, and they have no antidote if serious bleeding occurs. Pradaxa is taken twice a day, xarelto is once daily. If stopped abruptly, there is incr risk of clotting with both. Pradaxa can often cause stomach upset. ...Read more

How long does aspirin and tylenol (acetaminophen) stay in ur system? For example usually it says take every 6 hours so does that mean after that it's gone within?

How long does aspirin and tylenol (acetaminophen) stay in ur system? For example usually it says take every 6 hours so does that mean after that it's gone within?

Depends on dose: A one-time dose is normally gone within that time frame. However, regular use of medications create a "steady state" baseline which takes longer to be metabolized. How long depends on your metabolism. For example, kidney or liver disease cause drugs to not be cleared as effectively, and the medication can build up in your system. Also, effects of Aspirin on platelets can last up to a week. ...Read more

What is the difference between aspirin, tylenol, (acetaminophen) and ibuprofen?

What is the difference between aspirin, tylenol, (acetaminophen) and ibuprofen?

Effect on baby: Aspirin and Ibuprofen are related anti-inflammatory pain medicines. They should be avoided in pregnancy, especially in the 2nd and 3rd trimesters because they can close an important valve in the baby's heart. This valve normally closes at the time of birth which is why they can be taken post-partum. Tylenol (acetaminophen) is a pain reliever that does not have this effect on the baby and is safe in pregnancy. ...Read more

This: This may well be a musculoskeletal pain related to prior activity, but other causes are possible. A blood clot traveling to your lungs can cause this type of pain. Particularly if you have a history of blood clots, you should have this looked into by your doctor. Bedrest, cigarette smoking, a family history of blood clots, fractures in the pelvis or legs, heart failure, obesity, recent surgery, blood that is more likely to clot (hypercoagulability), cancer, taking Estrogens or birth control pills all increase the risk of blood clots forming. Blood clots in legs veins are most common in adults over age 60, but can occur at any age. Sitting for long periods when traveling can increase the risk of blood clots. This most often occurs when one or more of the risk factors listed above are also present.
Warning signs of a blood clot traveling to your lungs include: unexplained sudden onset of shortness of breath, chest pain or discomfort that worsens when you take a deep breath or when you cough, feeling lightheaded, dizziness, fainting, rapid pulse, sweating, coughing up blood, or a sense of anxiety or nervousness. ...Read more
