T'cytosis: hello~ if you have idiopathic thrombocytosis do not take low dose aspirin, unless advice from hematology. It can makes it worse. The treatment is plasmapheresis (thrombopheresis) when platelets are >1.5million. You need to see and be followed by competent Heme-Oncologist thanks http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3145107/ ...Read more

Atenolol : Atenolol helps to decrease blood pressure and also decreases the force with which the heart ejects blood. It is a medicine to slow the heart rate and help prevent stress on the aorta. His dilated aorta (or aortic aneurysm) is related to weakening of the connective tissue in the aorta and increases the risk of an aortic dissection, a surgical emergency. An aortic dissection is often fatal, presenting with chest pain often radiating through to the back. It may be a tearing sensation. Heart-related complications may shorten the lifespan of people with this disease. Patients can survive well into their 60s. Good care and surgery may extend the lifespan further. ...Read more

Will taking a low dose aspirin once a day protect from hear attack ?

HEART HEALTH: Aspirin helps thin the blood by a complex biochemical mechanism. The fact is that a heart attack is usually caused from a crack in a cholesterol laden plaque in one of the arteries that feeds the heart muscle. The aspirin, taken regularly, helps prevent the clot from developing and buys the patient time. It doesn't prevent the plaque rupture, but it delays the blockage that the ensuing clot causes ...Read more

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
