Aspirin & lactation: If low-dose Aspirin is taken, avoid breastfeeding for 1 to 2 hours after a dose to minimize antiplatelet effects in the infant (bleeding).

Was just given baby aspirin for first time in er. How long would it take for salicylate intolerance or pseudoanaphylaxis to present?
Stop: Please go see your family doctor. Do not take the Aspirin until you have been cleared by a physician who knows you well. I see nothing in your history that would have warranted an er visit. You have chronic medical problems and possibly some mental health issues that could be stress caused by these conditions. It is always best to keep this in the primary care medical clinic. ...Read more

Yesterday I had a BM that looked like coffee grounds and also real long snake BM is this serious ? I take plavix (clopidogrel) and baby aspirin. Emilie
This is Serious:
Black 'coffee ground' BM which also has characteristics of being long (which could be sticky/tarry) is concerning for bleeding in the gastrointestinal tract, especially in someone on 2 anti-platelet medications which 'thins' the blood.

There are also other causes for black stools, but the worrisome cause needs to be evaluated. ...Read more

Can you develop hives suddenly after long term use of daily baby aspirin (15 years). IgE normal. Recurrent hives x 9 months. Skin test/ labs normal. ?

Random onset of hives is quite common and may not have anything to do with the aspirin particularly if there has been no lapse in the aspirin regimen. Labs cannot confirm or rule out aspirin allergy. A careful history taking and timeline is essential. FYI Aspirin / NSAIDS sensitivity (aka AERD) is a different animal. ...Read more
I'm on baby aspirin for blood thinners. I no longer take lovenox (enoxaparin). Can I drink alcohol?
No: Aspirin taken daily can be very beneficial in preventing heart attacks and strokes.

In addition, there could be interactions with other medications. Discuss with your doctor before starting any Aspirin therapy. ...Read more

Not for babies: It's actually a misnomers bc Aspirin should not be given to babies.

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.

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

The symptoms include vomiting, confusion, seziures and can progress to coma and liver failure.

So, a level of 150 may be fine if you are a healthy 21 year old marathon runner but too high if you've already had a heart attack. Baby Aspirin has different risks/benefits based on your age, gender, and health status. For women older than 50, the benefit may outweigh the risks to prevent stroke, but check with your doctor. ...Read more

Yes: Yes. It works faster when chewed but, if you're not in a hurry, swallowing is fine. (if you're taking it everyday, you have an Aspirin effect already so there's no hurry, but when people are having chest pain and not on Aspirin or their status isn't known, chewing gets it into their system faster). ...Read more
