What Is The Long Side Effects Of Aspirin And Other Heart Medications?

3 years ago my husband had an angioplasty 3 times. He s 63 yrs old. After that he s taking aspirin, flavix, statin and other heart medications. 2 months ago he wasn t feeling well and he went to see his cardio n they decided to have an angiogram and the result was good as there s no blocks in the major arteries except for the smaller arteries. After the angioplasty 3 years ago his blood pressure has always been normal but this week it s been quite high like 166 over 93. Im very worried about the high reading. What is the long term side effects of taking aspirin and other heart medications?
