Brief Answer: Briliant and ecosprin combine can occasional caus Detailed Answer: Hi, thanks for the detailed query. Briliant being powerful anti plate, especially when used with aspirin is known to cause. As long as it is small quantity as you have described it doesn't matter. and usually spontaneously subsides. I was noting that you have written tid at the end of each medicines, does it mean he is taking all medicines three times a day. Because most of these are not 'tid' medicines and also brilliant 90 mg should be taken one tablet two times a day and not three times day. Please get back to me with clarification or may be you should scan attach the prescription. Awaiting your response...

Thanks for responding back, Doctor. With tid we meant: number of times a day. Should i reduce any medication and if so for how much time? Does the present condition warrant any alarm and necessitate any kind of visit to a doctor as i am only visitor to the USA. Attaching prescription.
