Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

Since you are already on oral anti-coagualnt with INR 2-3 ,you need to avoid anti-platelet drug like aspirin as it can lead to GI bleeding.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
