Can you take aspirin when pregnant?
You should not mix Acetaminophen (Tylenol) and Acetylsalicylic acid (Aspirin). The reason for this is l ong term renal (kidney) damage. What happens in the Tylenol induces the formation of free oxide radicals which damage tissues (especially the kidneys and liver). This is normally not an issue at …low Tylenol doses. However, when you add Aspirin to the mix, the free oxide radicals become an issue. Aspirin is a Cyclooxygenase inhibitor (COX), which decreases prostaglandin (PGE 2) synthesis. Prostaglandins are responsible for vasodilatation of the renal afferent arterioles. If you are on Aspirin the renal afferent arterioles are vasoconstricted and subsequently renal blood flow is decreased. When renal blood flow is compromised your kidney is less able to deal with the free oxide radicals produced by Tylenol. So what happens? The free oxide radicals damage the renal medulla (which may slough off) or lose the ability to concentrate urine due to damage to the most notably the thick ascending limb of the nephron. This is called Analgesic Nephropathy. Having said this, the damage is caused by long term mixing of Tylenol and Aspirin, so having mixed the two in the past once five years ago is not going to compromise your kidneys. Just make sure to avoid the mistake in the future, and pass on this information (there are way too many sources providing incorrect information on this subject). If you're having pain that bad, maybe your doctor can prescribe something stronger or more effective. It's very important not to exceed the recommended daily dose of either medication. Like prescription medications, there are side effects to medications that you can buy over the counter. When you have questions about medications, the best person to ask is a pharmacist. You can call any drugstore and speak to one, you don't have to be a customer. Yes you can take both together (called polypharmacy) There used to be an over the counter med called Vanqish. It had aspirin/acetaminophen (TYLENOL) and caffeine. The Tylenol compliments the aspirin and the caffeine helps aspirin work better. BUT don't take high doses of each--take like 325 mg. Tylenol and 325 mg aspirin. If aspirin bothers your stomach, buy coated aspirin, called enteric aspirin. It dissolves in your intestine instead of your stomach. Generic enteric coated aspirin from a place like Wal*Mart is inexpensive. Also save your money and buy generic Tylenol (acetaminophen). Long term use (within reason) should not be a problem. Do not use Tylenol (acetaminophen) with any other products containing acetaminophen. You can exceed daily recommended limits and cause liver damage. Read all labels carefully (cough syrup, etc.). Advice from a US licensed pharmacist is that it is safe to take acetaminophen and aspirin together as long as you follow the recommended dosages of either and have no allergies to either or conditions that would preclude your taking of either of these medications. As above, do not use acetaminophen with any other products containing acetaminophen. Apparently so, since the active ingredient in Tylenol, acetaminophen, is used in combination with aspirin, in Anacin Advanced (250 mg acetaminophen, 250 mg aspirin and 65 mg caffeine.) (MORE)
Answer . \nNO, but it might make you very sick as it reduces clotting.\n. \nOnly abstention or contraception can stop you from being pregnant.
NO NO NO Please do not take aspirin while you are pregnant. Take Tylenol or even extra stregnth Tylenol. Answer Asprin and all pain killers can cause birth defects. See your doctor for a pregnancy pain killer.
I got this from a vet website http://www.vetinfo.com/daspirin.html Aspirin has the same problems in dogs that it has in people. It can cause gastrointestinal upsets and ulcers if the GI signs are ignored. It can cause renal failure if overdosed. It causes an increase in clotting time. This usu…ally isn't a serious side effect but it does occur. Despite these shortcomings it has a lot of beneficial effects and it is inexpensive. The currently recommended dosage of aspirin varies a little from publication to publication but it is between 5 and 15mg/lb every 12 hours. Since there is a range I usually pick the middle of it and go for about 10mg/lb every 12 hours. This works well and seems to be pretty safe. That works out to an aspirin tablet per 32 pounds of body weight twice a day. I have to admit that I rarely advise giving more than 2 aspirin twice a day despite the fact that some big dogs could obviously take more based on the per pound calculation. (MORE)
Talk to your Dr before taking any type of medication while you are pregnant. All it takes is a phone call to your office.
You should not take these two medications together without checkingwith your doctor, because the combination carries a high risk. Aperson should only take these medications together if their doctorapproves it.
Phone your doctor, or a Pharmacist. DO not trust any reply here. If you do, and you die, don't blame me.
How much aspirin can you safely take? The usual aspirin dose is 325mg and one usually takes 2 every 4 hours, not to exceed 6 doses in 24 hours.
Well, since Excedrin Migraine has both acetaminophen and aspirin along with caffeine, I would think that it's ok.. \nI am not completely sure but you can always call a local cvs or any other pharmacy and they ill tell you.
It is generally not advised for a pregnant woman to take aspirin unless it is prescribed by a doctor. In some conditions aspirin is the appropriate choice, but it can have some consequences if taken in the wrong context. Other than the analgesic (pain killing) effect, aspirin causes the platelets… in the blood to not clot as easily. This is important in the treatment in some diseases, but in pregnancy can cause problems with the developing fetus (rarely), or during delivery (often). (MORE)
I was told if you are allergic to ibuprophen there is a fifty percent chance that you are allergic to aspirin.
It is never recommended that you mix painkillers. Co-codamol isparacetamol (acetaminophen) with codeine added. Before mixing pillsof any kind, it is advised that you seek the advise of a healthcare professional.
I can't speak for paracetomol, but I use tramoldol and aspirin together with great success for back pain. My neurologist assured me that combining them was irrelevant because their actions were distinct, and no synergistic effects have been observed. I suggest being wary of tramodol for long t…erm use. Some person experience very unpleasant withdrawal despite the product literature claims. (MORE)
You can, but I'm not sure why you would want to. They produce nearly identical therapeutic effects.. You should be aware that taking these two classes of medications together increase your chance of bleeding, ulcers, and gastritis. There is also an increase in chances for kidney damage.
Aspirin and morphine are a generally safe combination. A) aspirin is an anti-inflammatory, so it attacks the physical aspects of the pain and B) morphine acts on the central nervous system to literally block your ability to feel as much pain.
Voltaren is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), much like ibuprofen. Taking this medication, along with aspirin, may increase the risk of GI bleeding, ulcers, and perforations. There is also some data to show that Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatories, such as ibuprofen (and probably voltaren)… will decrease aspirin's anti-platelet effects. Likewise, if aspirin is being used as an anti-inflammatory (such as in arthritis), it can decrease the effects of other NSAIDS. Long story short, yes, you CAN take them together, but you may suffer some side effects and have problems down the road from GI bleeding. (MORE)
Yes, but what's the point. Advil is an aspirin mimic in all ways except the platelet blocking function.
According to ncbi.nlm.nih.gov, "The association of adverse reactions to acetaminophen and to ASA is uncommon..." So, it seems that they are safe to take together. Whether the acetaminophen is for you or a child, always consult your doctor or local pharmacist before beginning a new analgesic/antip…yretic regimen. (MORE)
No. Nor is other pain killers, but you can take tylenol.. ANSWER . You should only take aspirin under the doctor's advice. Aspirin is an anti coagulant thus it is dangerous when you are pregnant. If you have Hugh's syndrome or forms of Lupus doctors may prescribe it for you until the 35th week.… If you have a chronic condition with the coagulation of the blood, you might even be prescribed heparin. However, you should always seek doctor's advice before taking any type of medication during and not during pregnancy. Stay away from aspirin. When baby comes, keep baby away from aspirin because of Rye's Syndrome. The best thing to do is to always ask a doctor. (MORE)
Aspirin is very acidic, and can cause heartburn or upset stomach in some people. Aspirin is also tough for your liver to breakdown, and some people believe that drinking extra water may help your body to metabolize the aspirin, though this is highly unlikely
\nI looked it up and don't see any interactions. But that does not mean there aren't any. Call your pharmacist he/she will be able to provide you with a better answer
It depends what you are taking it for. Ibuprofen (advil) is an anti-inflammatory which will help with headache pain, muscular pain, joint pain, pain from an injury or surgery (where there is swelling), it is the best OTC all around painkiller. Acetaminophen (Tylenol) works in a different way, and wi…ll not help pain from swelling so much, which is where the majority of our pain comes from, it is better for nerve pain. (MORE)
I was concerned about the same thing one day when I was having a massive headache. I remembered after taking the aspirin that I never go answer to my question. I called a 24 hr pharmacy and the pharmacist told me that taking aspirin with phentermine was fine and there should be no reaction, however,… I take BC poweder and goodies. You should watch out how much of this you take as 1) it is aspirin and you shouldn't take too much and 2) both contain caffeine which can increase the effects of the phentermine and depending on the person and what other caffeine products you have taken could cause a stroke. (MORE)
It's a pain killer most commonly used for headaches. Some doctors prescribe small daily doses to heart patients.
Yes. Soma (carisprodol) is a muscle relaxant unrelated to aspirin. It does not affect bleeding nor the stomach or kidneys but can cause sedation.
it wouldn't necessarily cause a fetal death, but if the pills were strong enough and you are a small woman than, yes, it could. It would more likely hurt the fetus and give it abnormalities at birth.
\nAspirin causes the platelets in our blood to become "slick" and can inhibit or affect our blood's clotting ability. Pregnant women should not take aspirin due to the fact that she could hemmorhage during spontaneous abortion or delivery.
Aspirin is Aspirin. When people say "Take an Aspirin," they are actually referencing the drug itself. If your question is "What other Over the Counter pain reliever/blood thinners can I take that do not contain Aspirin ," then I would have to ask what purpose you need it for. As for Pain Reliever…s, anything containing Acetaminophen/Paracetamol (Tylenol), Ibuprofen (Advil), or Naproxen Sodium (Aleve) may be of some help. If you're looking for an OTC Blood Thinner, Aspirin is your best bet, however Ibuprofen may also be of some help. (MORE)
Usually, yes you can, they are not the same medicines. Both are NSAIDs however Ibuprofen does not thin your blood, nor should it cause an allergic reaction if you are allergic to aspirin. Always check with your doctor if you are unsure about taking a medication.
Aspirin is a "blood thinner" in addition to being an analgesic (pain reliever). Blood thinners help prevent harmful clots that could block important arteries and/or arterioles that provide nourishment to heart muscle.
Answer#1 Check the label of your Midol bottle. If it does NOT contain aspirin, naproxen or ibuprofen, then yes. Otherwise you could bleed heavily.
http://www.drugs.com/drug-interactions/aspirin-with-lopressor-243-0-1615-987.html The two drugs might counteract each other a bit in their effectiveness, but there seem to be no documented negative interactions between the two. Ask your pharmacist to be safe.
Yes, that is what led to its invention in the first place, Aspirin is a non steroidal anti inflammatory that relieves the symptoms of arthritis. It should be kept in mind however that aspirin will cause damage to the lining of the stomach and intestines should be taken with food and should not be us…ed too often. if the pain from arthritis persists it is important to seek medical aid in handling the condition.

Nope! But it wont be healthy for the fetus. If you absolutely have to take something you should talk to your doctor. Tylenol is usually the thing you are allowed to take.
No Tylenol is better but always check with your doctor first and especially if this is something you need more then once.
Resveratrol seems to have antiplatelet effects, so, taking resveratrol with other antiplatelet drugs might increase the risk of bruising and bleeding. Some of these drugs include nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) such as aspirin, diclofenac (Voltaren, Cataflam, others), ibuprofen (Advil,… Motrin, others), naproxen (Anaprox, Naprosyn, others).

I had a lot of aspirin and codeine a few hours before I had a crestor, it basically made me light headed but didn't seem to do any damage.
Aspirin can be taken for many purposes. You should always speak with your pharmacist or doctor before starting any medications to ensure they're right for you. "Higher" doses of aspirin (300-600mg) can be used as a painkiller, however there are better, more safer painkiller these days (e.g. aceta…minophen/paracetamol). Low-dose aspirin (a.k.a baby aspirin), which is 75-100mg are used by older people to "thin the blood" and protect from cardiovascular disease. There are certain people who will benefit more than others from taking baby aspirin every day. You should talk to your doctor if you're concerned about your heart health. (MORE)
Yes, in fact you should take aspirin before you use cocaine as itis a blood thinner and will counter-act the increase risk of heartattack. No one is safe from cocaine, otherwise healthy athletic individualshave suffered massive heart attacks from as little as half a line.Which is why, if you're goi…ng to use, probably should take someaspirin, along with a banana for pottassium.

because aspirin has many different good effects, not just acting as an effective pain relief it aslo acts as a blood thinner and helps to prevent clots so these reduce the chances of a heart attack
yes you can take plaquenil and aspirin together. I have lupus anticoagulant and my rheumatologist prescribed me plaquenil and a baby aspirin everyday. Do not take over one aspirin a day though
Zofran does not contain aspirin, but you should talk to your doctorabout your allergies before starting new medication.
If you take ibuprofen with anything it cancels out the recognition cells of the stomach Golgi apparatus which is responsible for allergies.
Aspirin and Seroquel have no serious documented interactions, so you should be safe taking them together.
No! If you need a painkiller while taking prednisone, pharmacistsrecommend Tylenol. Aspirin and Prednisone together causes erosionin the stomach.
Acetaminophen or paracetamol is better than aspirin. It is better to consult doctor before taking any medications while pregnant.
Aspirin can reduce fever and is an analgesic. If you have tonsillitis, that might make you a little more comfortable so long as it does not upset your stomach or interact badly with any other drugs you are taking. Do not give aspirin to a child because of the potential to cause Reye's syndrome (see …link). (MORE)
Before a heart attack, a plaque (a blockage of cholesterol- laden buildup in the bloodstream) may rupture. Platelets, tiny cell fragments that help clot up wounds, rush to the plaque, trying to repair it. When the platelets stick together, it can block blood from flowing to the heart, causing a hear…t attack. Asprin prevents the platelets from sticking together, and allows blood to get to the heart. (MORE)
Aspirin, a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medication, has been found to have beneficial effects for some animals. It has been used for conditions related to blood clotting, inflammation, and for its analgesic properties. However, it can also be toxic to the body. Once ingested, aspirin forms salicy…lic acid, which is then distributed throughout the body. Aspirin toxicity is a particular concern in cats because they lack the enzyme critical for metabolizing salicylic acid properly. Cat owners must follow their veterinarian's orders strictly if aspirin is prescribed for any reason. (MORE)
