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.

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.

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.

Uncomfortable: You sound rather uncomfortable and worried. If your symptoms persist you deserve a thorough history and physical which we cannot offer you here. Try a Consult or see your doctor.

Shouls I take a baby aspirin daily for the rest of my life. Can this have any longterm side effects or anything?

Shouls I take a baby aspirin daily for the rest of my life. Can this have any longterm side effects or anything?

Likely not.: However, unless you have problems contributing to heart disease or stroke, ie. High bp, bad cholesterol, diabetes, or a strong family hx, you will probably receive less cardioprotection. However, low dose asa may decrease the risk for colon ca!

My platelet count tends to be on the low normal side: 160 - 170. Would taking a baby aspirin (family history ofalzheimer's and stroke) be a problem?

Ask your doc: Specific decisions like this require someone knowing all about your history and your family history. Risks and benefits of treatment are very specific for each person.

Can I take a baby aspirin everyday? 18 years old and have high blood pressure. Benefits and side effects?

Can I take a baby aspirin everyday? 18 years old and have high blood pressure. Benefits and side effects?

Y would U want to?: Baby Aspirin helps prevent clots (thus heart attacks and ischemic (clot-related) type strokes. Unfortunately, by the same token, it increases with risk of bleeding including hemorrhagic (bleeding-type) strokes. No study I'm familiar with has shown benefit for Aspirin for anyone under the age of 50. Even 40 year old men showed no benefit for primary prevention. (people without disease).

Dr I'm 10 weeks pregnant, I had 2 miscarriages before at 5 weeks, now I have baby aspirin, clexane injection, folic acid, any side effect to baby?

Dr I'm 10 weeks pregnant, I had 2 miscarriages before at 5 weeks, now I have baby aspirin, clexane injection, folic acid, any side effect to baby?

It is likely safe: Enoxaparin ("Clexane" in UK; "Lovenox" in US) is commonly prescribed to pregnant women and is believed to be safe. It should be stopped before delivery. Aspirin should not be used during pregnancy *unless prescribed by a doctor*; it is commonly prescribed to treat antiphospholipid syndrome (which can lead to miscarriages) and preeclampsia.

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.

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.

What could cause a ruptured blood vessel under an eye? Will it go away? Had headache on same side a day before. I am on baby aspirin. Stop taking it?

See your doctor: Your symptoms warrant an evaluation. Don't stop taking the Aspirin without being directed to do so by your personal physician. Good luck.

No real issue: Absorbed fine. If it bothers your stomach it is perfectly good to take it with food.

Why can’t I give my baby aspirin?

Why can’t I give my baby aspirin?

No: Although rare, babies with certain viral illnesses who are given Aspirin for fever can develop something called reye syndrome. The symptoms include vomiting, confusion, seziures and can progress to coma and liver failure. So unless your pediatrician specifically told you to give your child aspirin, it's best to stick with Acetaminophen (tylenol) or, at 9 months or older, Ibuprofen (motrin, advil).

Prophylactic baby aspirin - 1 or 2 daily?

Depends: Why are you taking it (to prevent what problem?). In the vast majority of cases, a single baby Aspirin a day is all you need. Ask your doctor to be sure of what you should do in your particular situation.

Shuld I take baby aspirin if my LDL is 150?

Shuld I take baby aspirin if my LDL is 150?

Not necessarily: Your LDL (bad cholesterol) goal is based on your cardiac risk factors. So, a level of 150 may be fine if you are a healthy 21 year old marathon runner but too high if you've already had a heart attack. 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.
