Detailed Answer:
Thank you for sending your question.

This is a very good question. As you know since you're taking warfarin you can have bleeding when you get even small injuries. At this time I would not take any additional doses of Coumadin or aspirin. Continue taking your normal dose of Coumadin and watch for any excessive bleeding or bruising.

Again no need to change the dose of your medication. I would not add additional aspirin at this point.

Thank you again for sending your question. If you have specific concerns which we can discuss further I would be happy to review those with you as well.
