Side Effect Of Baby Aspirin
I am going to start my IVF cycle and my RE has asked to start on Baby Aspirin and continue throughout the cycle. Does it have any benefits/side effect?
Probably little: Whether or not Baby ASA has any benefits depends on your clinical history: for most it does not, in some cases it may have a small benefit. Your MD can discuss whether you are "one" of these people. Side effects? It's given to babies for fever for over 50 years. There are rare complications in individuals, but these are the exception. Again discuss with your MD about these risks. Best wishes. ...Read more
I am taking Ranexa (ranolazine) for. More than a year and started having tinnitus. I do realize that it's one it's side effect. What alternative a do you suggest? PS. I also take a baby aspirin+ Mwtoprolol and Atrovastatin.
First of all: With ur doctor's supervision u can stop Ranexa (ranolazine) & see if Sx are indeed due to it. Ranexa (ranolazine) acts to reduce angina by relaxing ischemic (blood deprived) heart muscle and is used in patients who usually cant have further bypass surgery or angioplasty. Changing the dosage &/or combination of hart meds may work&/or having an angio 2 c if something can be "fixed". Good luck. ...Read more

I have lots of bruising on the front & out side of my leg. I do take 1 baby aspirin a day & inhaled steroids. What is causing this. Sore in spots.
Purpura: Easy bruising can have many causes. One of the more common causes is minor trauma--hands, forearms, legs--in people on blood thinners. Something that accelerates bruising is the use of either topical or systemic steroids. I think your Aspirin and inhaled steroids are causing/worsening the problem. Do not stop them, but talk to your doctor for options. ...Read more

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
Not necessarily: Not necessarily. Alcohol in moderation (1-2 glasses of wine or 1 beer) a day should not cause you any problems. Alcoholism or heavy binge drinking can sometimes lower your platelets (the cells in your body that help clot your blood).
