Hi;
welcome to HealthcareMagic
Ecosprin is asprin and Plagarine is clopidogrel;both are platelet inhibitors and are used to maintain anticoagulant effect.If there is a itching problem with Ecosprin then you can get the medicine changed.But before doing so it ia necessary that you consult your Cardiologist.To change medicine on your own is not advisable so better consult your doctor.
Thanks

Hi, Am 55 year old, got 2nd relapse of Partial Bells Palsey 2 weeks back. Undergoing medication of Wysolone and physio therapy. During investigation, came to know Tiny focus of restricted diffusion in the right parietal cortical region - likely represents a acute infract. Dr advised me to start Ecosprin 75 mg tab daily at noon. Also heard that elopitab is better., and am told to take this one tab at night. Pls suggest Ecospin or Elipitab which one is better and if there any side effects, I am not diabetic and BP is within the range My e mail id is YYYY@YYYY Thanks and regards sreedharan

Hello, this is great! I am taking two drugs which may be leading to another problem. My doctor is not worried and he is probably right because my family has been treated by him for almost 40 years. I am 64 years old and I am taking two drugs--Plavix(75mg) in the morning with breakfast and Dexilant (60mg) at night half an hour before dinner. About 6 months after taking these two drugs, the doctors started noticing low blood platelets when they tested my blood. My doctor wants to monitor this every 4 months. I wonder if the combination of these two drugs is causing this new condition. By the way, I can t take Baby Aspirin because I cannot tolerate the acidity. I have enjoyed good health all my life, but this issue with low platelets. Thank you in advance for your listening...

Have been prescribed hydromorphone for heart related issues, as needed for pain, 7 stents and a single CBG. Have pleurisy often and allergy Anaphylaxes to Tramadol, Morphine and Demerol. Due to relatively young age the Hydromorphone is not normally given but due to the severity of my Coronary Heart Disease along with Small Vessel Disease it does seem to comfort me better than anything else. Was given 15 pills March 14th, 4 mg and split them 1/2 when needed. Still have 3 full remaining pills. I make it a point to not take them and luckily do not have an addictive personality so am overcautious about taken them at all and only in severe cases. Seems the VA after today will only give Hydromorphone to patients with terminal cancer. They suggested Percocet as the Hyrocodone does not have any effect or body just does not process it well. Heart has a problem with bottoming out so I can take 1 nitro every 10 minutes if needed and not the normal 3 within 15 minutes and baby aspirin. Is there anything else on the market that will be as effective as the Hydromorphone that I can ask about that does not cause any addiction or inflate the liver or overwork the Kidneys. After Bypass had to have 15 transfusion due to IBS and COLITUS along with ulcers from the blood thinner Plavix. I know longer take a blood thinner. Thank you!!!
