Brief Answer:
I wouldn't recommend it

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

although clinical trials are lacking, this enzyme may impair the fibrinolytic system. Aspirin acts on the platelets to reduce their ability to form clots. Using both at the same time may increase the risk for bleeding, so I wouldn't recommend it, unless your doctor has prescribed it to you (which I doubt).

I hope I've helped!

Kind Regards!
