Hi there,
Thanks for writing in.
I am a qualified and certified cardiologist. I read your question with diligence.
Blood thinners are very few, clinically these are a) antiplatelet or platelet function inhibitors like aspirin, clopidogrel and Group II/IIIa inhibitors like abciximab, tirofiban etc. And those which act as anti-coagulation function drugs like Warfarin and Acitrom.
In your case bruising may be due to platelet dysfunction due to some substance which you might be taking.
As of other drugs and chemical substances depress the function of platlet and the list in standard A4 Size text book (for example Wintrobe's Text Book of hematology) run in two columns for four pages.
To Answer your question these are officially named anti oxidants which do not have function as blood thinner.

Antioxidant substances include
• Lutein
• Lycopene
• Selenium
• Vitamin A
• Vitamin C
•Vitamin E

If there is further query which you might have I will be most happy to answer. Good Luck.

Escitalopram and

All are known to cause bruisabi.lity incidence may be one case in a million but data on records with the FDA shows the portential Side effect. You can do seach on these drugs on net. You will find the reference. I had written drugs causing platelet dysfunction is 4 pages double column.
