Thanks for writing to us.
Loprin is usually advised for the cardiac issues and thinning of the blood. It is not likely to affect the rheumatoid arthritis he is having. You need to consult his cardiologist for the alteration of the doses.
I hope this information has been both informative and helpful for you.
