My sister 21, is pregnant & takes an 81mg aspirin and 30mg of celexa daily. Is it fine for her to take prenatal w/ 80 mcg of vitamin K?

Yes, however: Vitamin k of 80 mcg /day is fine, within the recommended daily allowance, but you don't need supplements as it is already available in several foods that we eat everyday. Celexa and aspirin may interact, keep the follow up with the doctor and don't miss appointments, ask the doctor about any queries, your sister needs good prenatal care, wish her an uneventful pregnancy and a healthy baby ...Read more

According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

I am taking 325mg of aspirin daily for small cryogentic stroke. Should I be watching my vitamin-k intake? I

No: Vitamin K has an impact on warfarin (Coumadin) because it is a a part of the coagulation pathway - the various proteins in blood that come together when activated to form a clot, aspirin has its effect on a different part of coagulation, the platelets making them "less sticky" and less likely to form a clot. Eat all the salad you want. ...Read more

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).

Could aspirin and vitamin C be used to prevent pregnancy?

Could aspirin and vitamin C be used to prevent pregnancy?

No.: Neither Aspirin or vitamin c or combination of both will prevent pregnancy.

To prevent pregnancy, most commonly, you have to prevent fertilization either by physically blocking the sperm from reaching the egg (this is condoms, diaphragms, cervical caps work). Or, by preventing ovulation (this is how traditional hormonal birth control works). Aspirin and vit c will not prevent pregnancy! ...Read more

Is there any risk in taking the one a day women's vitamins? Also being that they are made by Bayer do they contain aspirin? I'm 30 yrs old

Is there any risk in taking the one a day women's vitamins? Also being that they are made by Bayer do they contain aspirin? I'm 30 yrs old

Yes, some risks: No medicine or supplement is completely safe. One a day brand women's vitamins has ingredients that some people are allergic to such as fish & soy. The soy may be from gmo sources which I consider risky. It has 3 artificial colors that can cause adverse reactions (& are unnecessary), titanium dioxide, a possible carcinogen, & synthetic vit e which is also unhealthy. It has no aspirin.

How much vitamin d 3 & vitamin K should a woman take daily? I am bruising easily and wanted to know if vitamin K will help so I won;;t bruise easy?

Depends: Vitamin d intake depends on your blood level. Some people need more than others; their body breaks it down faster. It will not have any effect on bruising. Vitamin k is in leafy green vegetables which you should be eating daily. Vitamin k is also in many multivitamins. Vitamin k deficiency is very rare unless you have unusual medical problems so look for other causes of bruising. See your doctor. ...Read more

Can taking any of the following lengthen bones and increase the height of an adult female: zinc, calcium magnesium, vitamin d, vitamin k, vitamin b?

No: Hi. At 30 years old, you're long done gaining height. Nothing you can do to add height after your long bone growth plates fuse in your teens. If you have a healthy diet, of the vitamins and mineral you list, the only ones you're at risk for not getting enough of are calcium and vitamin D, so assure you're getting enough of them. But no supplement of any kind will lengthen bones in you. ...Read more

I just had liposuction of my abdomen and I need to stay off of baby aspirin and red wine what about K 12 vitamin foods?

Vit K okay postop: Foods containing vitamin K should not be a problem. In fact, vitamin K-containing food such a leafy greens should be a regular part of your diet. The medications and foods your doctor wants you to avoid are ones that potentially increase the risk of bruising and bleeding because they inhibit platelet function. Post-op you should eat a healthy well-balanced diet and take a multivitamin. Best wishes ...Read more

What vitamin supplements should one avoid when taking 75 mg plavix, two 81mg aspirin and 40mg crestor (rosuvastatin) daily?

What vitamin supplements should one avoid when taking 75 mg plavix, two 81mg aspirin and 40mg crestor (rosuvastatin) daily?

High dose E BUT...: Vitamins are by definition essential for health so I'm wary of any drug that makes it necessary to avoid vitamins. The only vit. That interacts with these is Vit E, which in high doses thins blood so may increase risk of bleeding with Plavix (clopidogrel) & aspirin. However, this potential risk pales in comparison with the known hazards of combining Plavix (clopidogrel) & aspirin. Please see http://bit. Ly/VHiLuH & my comment: ...Read more

Blood pigment?: None of these medications will give you a green discharge per se. Lovenox (enoxaparin) and aspirin make it easier for you to have bleeding. Sometimes small amounts of blood will turn your cervical mucus green as green pigments are a component of hemoglobin in blood. Best wishes! ...Read more

Having colonoscopy next week. Is it critical that low dose aspirin, fish oil, multivitamin, and vitamin C be discontinued 7 days in advance?

Yes If Told Not: The Aspirin and fish oil both can thin your blood and cause bleeding issues during the procedures. Vitamins often have dyes in them that can discolor the tissues and make it difficult to accurately assess any conditions that might be present.
