In brief: A large number

There are a lot of OTC medications and herbal supplements can 'thin the blood'.
Medications like aspirin, ibuprofen, Naprosyn, (naproxen) fish oil, all can have this effect. Herbal supplements such as borage, ginko, garlic, ginger can also have some effect. If you are on a prescription. Blood thinner, then discuss the use of OTC and herbal medications with your physician before taking anything new.
