In brief: Anticoagulants
Vascular ehlers-danlos is a difficult disease to manage.
Any of the medications that suppress platelet function, and the anticoagulants generally, need to be avoided. However, of the common over-the-counter medicines, aspirin's by far the most powerful anti-clotting agent; before you receive any other medicine that could make you bleed, your physician would discuss risk-benefit with you.
