I am on low dose aspirin for MTHFR. Should I avoid prenatals with vitamin K since it works to clot the blood?

I am on low dose aspirin for MTHFR. Should I avoid prenatals with vitamin K since it works to clot the blood?

NO!!!: Vitamin K is ESSENTIAL for good health and your baby could have bleeding problems if you are deficient. While lack of Vit K increases bleeding, taking Vit K does NOT increase risk of clots. See http://bit.ly/1nzsOh0 for more on K. You should be taking the L-5-MTHF form of folate (folic acid).

Is it possible for you to safely take low dose aspirin while on ativan (lorazepam)?

Is it possible for you to safely take low dose aspirin while on ativan (lorazepam)?

Should be okay: The combination of Aspirin and Lorazepam does not seem alarming to any extent although i would caution that the propensity to fall while taking Lorazepam for some individuals would make the risk of serious bleed increased. This would be significant in the context of severe head trauma potentially leading to intracranial bleeding. This could be catastrophic although very rare. Stay safe! ...Read more
