Hello Anonymous,

Anticoagulant medicines reduce the ability of the blood to clot. they are most commonly prescribed for people who have had a condition caused by blood clots or who are at risk of developing one.

Antiplatelet drugs, such as aspirin, prevent blood cells called platelets from clumping together to form a clot.

Aspirin has been known to help reduce the risk of a transient ischemic attack (TIA), stroke, and heart attack.

Anonymous, has your physician prescribed a daily dose of aspirin to reduce your risk of having a heart attack, TIA or stroke?

Is your physician aware that you take a daily dose of fish oil? If not, please discuss this. Upon ingestion, the fatty acids present in the fish oils are transformed into substances, known as prostaglandins, which affect the body's ability to clot, both from internal and external injuries.
