Is Motrin A Blood Thinner
Anti-platelet: Nsaids - non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as Ibuprofen (motrin) an have a mild anti-platelet effect. Platelets are the cells that plug up cuts and then coagulation factors help seal and remodel the cut into a scar until healed. Nsaids are not designed or prescribed for anti-platelet effects like Aspirin or plavix (clopidogrel). Anti-coagulants such as warfarin or heparins are also different. ...Read more

Some blood spread down under the skin into the vaginal area to discolor the vagina (black). This is called ecchymosis.

Probably not: Allergic rhinitis is an immunological disease caused by mast cell degranulation and the release of mediators of inflammation, especially histamine. I suppose it is possible that mast cell inflammatory mediators could alter blood pressure. Also another possibility is anxiety caused by the presence of severe allergic response. In general most cases of hypertension are not caused by nasal allergy. ...Read more
