I've since cut back to two doses a week of the low-dose aspirin. Never had nose bleeds in my life until I started a daily regiment. Has this happened to anyone here?

Was the aspirin routine suggested by your doctor and have you discussed this with him?

My parents take one half a child size asperin...40 g/day....I'm thinking that you've been taking too much...thus the bleeding....asperins being blood thinners, should not be mixed with some other blood thinning drugs or foods...vitamin e for example..........http://www.healtharticles101.com/top...r-thick-blood/

To answer.....I was on the low dosage (81 mg); doc agreed it was a good idea that I started to take them; I take no other drugs save for a vitamin once a day. I eat lots of leafy greens, veggies, water, etc. The twice-a-week deal seems to be working now. I realized aspirin was a blood thinner, but maybe even that little amount was too much every single day.

I'm not sure there's any benefit to your health in taking an aspirin twice weekly. From what I understand, the whole point of it is to regulate *and maintain* your bloodflow through your arteries.. If you're not taking it regularly, then you're not regulating or maintaining anything.

I'd suggest getting the chewable 81s, and taking half of one, every day.

I get the same problem when I take an alieve, then take another one a second consecutive day. I rarely take alieve at all, mostly just when I'm feeling my hip acting up and know I have to work a long shift that day. I've since switched to acetominophen and it's working out better for me.

But that won't help me with my heart, and thankfully I'm not at risk (and I'm what they call a natural "bleeder" - I have thin blood) so I don't need aspirin anyway.

But I do have family members with clotting risks, and the ones who aren't taking warfarin (coumadin) are on a baby aspirin regime, and it's working out well for them.

Aspirin is a blood thinner so this doesn't surprise me as a side effect
