Interesting. Are you sure you should be taking even the 81mg dose while on blood thinners? I know different thinners work differently, but I would be a little wary of this.
Actually...it is an anti-coagulant...and my doctor would prefer a full dose aspirin...but my stomach just cannot tolerate it.
Without knowing how badly you cut yourself, I'd still speculate that 81mg may be too much. I take 325 and have not noticed any problems.
MONDAY, April 14, 2014 (HealthDay News) -- People taking blood thinners to prevent clots in their legs or lungs may put themselves at risk for serious internal bleeding if they also take common painkillers such as aspirin or ibuprofen, researchers warn.
These over-the-counter painkillers -- called nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) -- include such drugs as Advil, Aleve, Bufferin, Excedrin, Motrin and Nuprin, as well as aspirin. Patients who use blood thinners such as warfarin, Eliquis, Xarelto or Pradaxa should not take them, the researchers said.
"If you are taking an NSAID while taking an anticoagulant, your risk of a major bleed is double what it would be if you weren't taking an NSAID," said lead researcher Dr. Bruce Davidson. He's with the division of pulmonary and critical care medicine at the University of Washington School of Medicine in Seattle.
