I want to know if it is bad to take aspirin with a heart murmur. My husband who is 46 years old was born with a heart murmur and he started taking aspirin about a year ago for blood clots/vericous veins in his legs to make them shrink per advice from a doctor at our local low-cost healthcare center. The doctor who examined him said that if we had health insurance that he could do a lazer procedure on his legs but we don t so the doctor recommended to him take a regular aspirin everyday to make the blood clots shrink. However, this has not worked and for the last two weeks his heart has been beating much faster then normal. Before he started taking aspirin he did not have this problem. Please give me an answer to what we should do and if my thinking is right that the aspirin has done more harm then good.

age 75, 9 years after bypass, 8.75 years after stents. Regular exercise 1.5 hrs. 3 times a week on machines and treadmill. All otherwise healthy. Taking Clopedagrel and full asprin. Should I keep taking both? No side effects except that if I cut myself it takes longer to stop bleeding and heal.

My neurologist told me to take 1/2 of a 325mg UNCOATED aspirin every day since I had a Stroke 12 years ago. the reason for the uncoated vs coated aspirin is that there have been studies that show uncoated aspirin protects against stroke 40% better than coated aspirin. I can t seem to find anyone that still makes the uncoated aspirin. Do you have any ideas where I can still get it? Any suggestions what I should do if it is unavailable? Thank you for your help email: YYYY@YYYY

Good afternoon I was told back in Aug 2013 that I have Factor 5 Leiden thrombophilia. The doctor put me on Xarelto for 6 months now and has taken me off and to start using aspirin again. The doctor states that they do not like to keep on medication no longer then 6 months. But I m still on Hydrochlothiazide 25 mg every other day and my ankles are still swollen. I asked the doctor how will I know if I get the blood clots again and his response was I will know. Should I find a hematology & oncology? This scares me!
