Hemophilia Avoid Aspirin
How many aspirins a day is it safe to take on a regular daily schedule? I take four 325mg tablets every day.
Aspirin Dose: This is a difficult question to answer without knowing why you are taking it. If you are taking Aspirin for its cardioprotectant effect, the dose is considerably lower than what you are taking on the other hand, if you are taking it as an anti-inflammatory agent for osteoarthritis, the dose seems a little low. The doctor who prescribed your Aspirin therapy is the best person to answer this ...Read more
Huh?: Don't take an overdose of aspirin! the dose for adults is: 325-650 mg every 4 hours as needed. For children, the dose is: 10-15 mg/kg every 4-6 hours with a maximum daily dose of 60-80 mg/kg. If you get ringing in the ears, stomach upset or nausea, lower the dose. Follow these instructions and you will avoid an Aspirin overdose. ...Read more
Same time: 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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Not necessarily: Not necessarily. Alcohol in moderation ( 1-2 glasses of wine or 1 beer) a day should not cause you any problems.

Anticoagulants: Vascular ehlers-danlos is a difficult disease to manage. Any of the medications that suppress platelet function, and the anticoagulants generally, need to be avoided.

Are the contrasts used during mris linked with bleeding or ssris? My radiologist said they'll avoid contrast because of hemophilia.
Have mild hives after ibupro&aspirin. Does this mean i'm sensitive as opposed to a true alrgy? Must i avoid things like pepto? Reaction is so minor.
Aspirin Allegy: Since you develop hives (urticaria) after taking both Aspirin and ibuprophen, which are nsaids, it certainly sounds like you have a true allergy (also known as hypersensitivity) to this class of drugs. I would avoid taking any meds containing Aspirin (salicylates) and other nsaids. This include pepto-bismol. Avoiding these products is the best defense against a more serious allergic reaction. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
