Does ibuprofen thin blood

Common Questions and Answers about Does ibuprofen thin blood

ibuprofen

It affects the kidney/urine output of the fetus, which results in lower amniotic fluid levels. It can also thin your blood, which can increase the risk of heavy bleeding during delivery and after. Your OB will tell you the same thing. Everything will be ok, and now you know, and you won't take it again. Good luck with the pregnancy!
I have asked 2 different chemists and my liver specialist about whether Ibuprofen thins blood and they all confirmed that is does. It does not thin blood as much as aspirin however. I had a liver biopsy a week ago and was told not to take any Ibuprofen one week before or one week after the biopsy because of bleeding risks. I have also been told that Tylenol (in Aus known as Paracetamol) is harmful to the liver in doses higher than 2 grams in 24 hours for people with hep c.
acetaminophen does not help inflammation, does control pain but taxes the liver. Ibuprofen/advil/alleve etc are a class of drugs known as NSAIDs non-steroidal anti inflammatory drugs. NSAIDS help inflammation but are harmful to damaged kidneys. Your dr. can tell by blood tests such as creatinine levels and bun creatine ratios whether your kidney function is within normal limits or not. Drugs such as lasix which are used to control swelling (edema)also tax the kidney.
No aspirin works as a blood thinner. NSAIDs such as ibuprofen do not thin the blood. My grandpa and dad both have to take blood thinners and can only use NSAIDs and Tylenol with their blood thinning drugs so as not to thin the blood too much.
As for ibuprofen, all I know for certain is that, like other NSAIDS, it will thin your blood, and can irritate the stomach lining. Some people tolerate it just fine - others don't. One thing in your favor is that ibuprofen is not as toxic to the liver as tylenol.
My doctor told me to try and take tylenol if possible as the NSaids and Ibuprofen change your blood chemistry and the acetaminophen does not. I like that he explainned WHY and didn't just say "dont take"...I don't work well without a reasoninng! Still - Advil is NECESSARY to avoid the migraines I get and I've had to take it a few times during treatment (week 68 of 72 coming up). You HAVE to do what you have to do in those circumstances.
I am only 21 and i only have blood clots in my period... what does this mean? and my cramps are umbearable!
I am so glad to hear that others get it too. I am thin, athletic with low blood pressure. I do have low platelets and have a border line low thyroid problem. Other wise I am in good health.

Hi I'm interested to know if there are many FMS sufferers who have a RH Neg blood type. I have seen quite a few people on forums who have FMS and are also RH Neg. Does anyone know if there is a connection? I would be very interested to find out. I have been diagnosed with FMS and also have a RH Neg blood type.
Hi you guys! I found this forum in trying to deal with my 3 year dependence on Norco for s/p 2 lumbar laminectomies.... Oh my GOSH! who would have thought that I would become chemically dependent on a perscribed Pain Med??? Not ME! Heck, I have an 'ENDLESS RX" @ only $5.00 FOR 70 10/325 Norco EVERY 10 DAYS. Anyhoos....heres my story (if ya wanna read it).. Lami in 1983 from being a compulsive runner/exerciser; oK, THEN...
What is true from what he said this morning is that the blood does come from the prostate...... I tend to instinctivly agree with seeker01 however that it's a tear or leak when fully errect, what makes me think that this may not be the cause is that you'd think they could see this down the scope and it's a simple diagnsis. A mate joked saying I'd got a high pressure leak ...maybe he's right. As I get more diagnosis from consultants I will for sure post up any findings.
Reason I say that is because I thought about when it's about that time for a period to come on, a bit of blood comes with some cramping but it don't be as full or long as a regular period. When it does that, the baby is usually implanting itself in the uterus.
I would suggest you taper your dose to prevent any possibility of seizures and ibuprofen or aspirin would be a good pain reliever because they thin the blood and act as pain relief. I would not recommend anything with caffeine because it constricts blood vessels. You could alternate tylenol and ibuprofen during the withdrawal pain and then stick with ibuprofen and adding acetaminophen only when pain is more severe.
I am a healthy 31 year old male and after getting a couple of blood/ urine tests, they have determined my protein level in urine is high. In the 24 hr urine collection, I had 864 mg of urine and it should be < 150mg. I don't have high blood pressure or diabetes symptoms. My only issue now is headaches I get every day which goes away when I take ibuprofen.
I wouldn't take anything but Tylenol (acetaminophen) unless instructed to do so by your physician. Sorry Belle, Tylenol does NOT thin the blood. It does not contain blood thinning properties, that's why it's usually approved before treatments or surgeries that bleeding may be a problem. I wouldn't take the Tramadol either without approval. Good luck to you.
Unless your Dr. says you need to take it....dont take anything. I know Ibuprofen and I think aspirin cause bleeding. Not 100% sure on that though. Have you tried Robitussin? It suppose to thin all mucus including cervical mucus to help the sperm through easier. I tried for 13 months and m/c'd then we tried for 2 months and on the 3rd month I used the robitussin and got pregnant. I guess I'll never know.
My only thought about asprin is the same as w/ Ibuprofen, if your platelettes are low. Both thin the blood and w/ low platelettes, that could be dangerous. Other than that, I used asprin until they dropped.
Family history of high and low blood pressure, thick and thin blood, joint and nerve problems, heart problems, diabetes. What would you consider likely? From the brief reading I have done it seems to resemble TIA, but I'm a psych student. Real medicine passes me by :P.
I never in a million years thought taking aspirin could harm my chances at concieving or not m/cing. Thinking about it now...i guess it was kinda stupid. Aspirin does thin the blood...hmmm...im such a idiot. Its got me thinking that i m/c because of the aspirin, and have not concieved since because iv been thining the lining of the womb!!! I took 2 yesterday as i had a banging headache. A few days before my fertile window will open...damn it!!! No more aspirin for me.........
You must be careful with pain meds, and avoid anything with aspirin or ibuprofen as these tend to thin the blood and in my case cause my ulcers to burst. Perhaps the pharmacist can advise you until you get to see a gastroenterologist. Liz.
About the only requirement I would have had (if I was on them) was to not take any type of blood thinner (aspirin, coumadin, ibuprofen, etc.) for several days before my injection. They also use a dye during these injections to make sure they are getting the steroid into the correct spot in the joint.
I have had to toxoplasmosis flare ups. My immune system is not surpressed well at least that is what the blood work determined. My second time I took daraprim, folic acid, and azithromiacin for a month. I stoped taking the daraprim because my retina specialist said that my condition had resolved. I saw her about three days ago. Oh, I still have to take the azithromiacin for another month. I have been having eye pain whenever I move my eye to my far right, left, up, down, and just all around.
but please do err on the sid of caution and head to your drs pronto. Ibuprophen does thin the blood/.
I don't think you can take ibuprofen right after a surgery because it can thin your blood, but idk what your post op dr said when they released you. You need to really closely watch that fever though, make sure it doesn't go any higher. if it does get to the ER, because you could have an infection.
Are you sure that they are bruises, and not just spots that appear to be bruises? Although ibuprofen does not thin the blood the same way aspirin does, it could potentially be thinning your blood to an extent that could cause mild bruising even at the slightest bump... However if they aren't bruises and just spots that look identical to bruises that could be a totally different issue altogether.. Hope this helped!
Assuming this is a thrombosed vein as I have read about, would it then be a blood clot? I have tried asprin/ibuprofen to help thin the blood, and abstinence but have had little success. I am not sure how much asprin or how long someone typically should do this with no results before giving up.
I get these tears about a week before my period and after sex. I've been tested for all sti's twice, yeast, bacteria, herpes blood test and swab and its all been negative. I am only 28...is it possible for my skin to because thin down there at this age? There are no tears on the inside. I've seen so many doctors and no one can seem to give me any advice. I've mentioned the thinning to my doctor and she said nope that can't be happening because I'm only 28!! Thoughts??
