Common Questions and Answers about Acute stroke aspirin

stroke

Avatar m tn In the CAPRIE trial, clopidogrel (plavix) was equivalent to aspirin for patients with a recent (but not acute) MI. Some subgroups of patients with cardiovascular disease in this trial seemed to benefit more from clopidogrel than from aspirin: those with a history of bypass surgery, a prior stroke or MI, arterial disease in two or more areas, diabetes, or high cholesterol. Clopidogrel may be a reasonable choice for these patients.
Avatar m tn Plavix (clopidogrel) was approved by the FDA for reduction of atherosclerotic events in patients with recent MI or stroke or established peripheral arterial disease in November 1997. Since then, clopidogrel has been approved for the reduction of atherosclerotic events in patients with acute coronary syndromes. Clopidogrel does not require routine blood monitoring.

Avatar f tn Hi, are you a hypertensive? in a person with prolonged, untreated high blood pressure, multiple lacunar infarcts can occur. This can cause additional symptoms to develop, including stroke or facial nerve paralysis. The damage has been done and as you are not in an acute phase, the work up now is determining if there are other high risk factors for developing infarcts. So, you can wait and have the tests done. Regards.
Avatar m tn My question concerns the pros and cons of adding a baby aspirin to the Coumadin therapy, mainly with respect to stroke prevention. My level of physical activity does increase bleeding risks somewhat in terms of musculoskeletal injury, and I am aware of the risk for G.I. bleed being increased with Aspirin as well.
Avatar n tn t walk the next day I phoned 999 again they sent another paramedic out who said he was fine and the GPS who said the same hospital diagnosis was acute sinus and middle ear infection following Tuesday I went to pieces at the surgery he visited my husband and told us to go to AECU there they did an MRI and said he has had a stroke started him on aspirin and cholesterol tablets and sent him home again next 48 hours no visit or phone calls I had to chase up the stroke nurse who had no information ab
Avatar n tn Depending upon these phases, the treatment of stroke includes platelet antiaggregants like aspirin, ticlopidine (Ticlid), clopidogrel (Plavix); HMG-CoA reductase inhibitors (statins); antihypertensives; thrombin inhibitors like warfarin and thrombolytics like tissue-type plasminogen activator. Recently a new approach has been used in many hospitals.It is hyperbaric oxygen therapy. You can learn more about this therapy from the following website: http://www.tldp.
Avatar n tn Aspirin will not fully offset this reisk. You should do your best or ask for your physicians help to stop smoking.
Avatar n tn ve already had a heart attack or stroke, or if you have been found by your doctor to be at high or moderate risk for heart attack or stroke, the benefits of taking aspirin can trump the risks. That’s because aspirin acts as an anti-inflammatory and an inhibitor of blood clotting. For those at risk, aspirin is one of the drugs in our arsenal (along with statins, ACE inhibitors, and beta blockers) that can help keep a coronary event from occurring in the first place or recurring.
Avatar n tn I take a baby aspirin (81 mg) daily to help prevent stroke and heart attack. Is their a significant risk of damaging the stomach or any other part of the GI tract using this much aspirin daily? Dear Jim, Aspirin is a type of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug. It works by inhibiting an enzyme called cyclooxygenase, which is important in the formation of prostaglandins. Prostaglandins can have different effects throughout the body.
Avatar m tn My health had been very good post surgery until two weeks ago when I suffered a stroke which an MRI indicated was a acute infarct of 3.7cm in AP dimension x about 3.0 cm wide in the right parietal area. I have been blessed with a quick recovery and have no residual effects from the stroke. After the stroke I was placed on 75 mg. Plavix daily and continued with my previous daily medication regimen of 10 mg. Altace, 100 mg. Toprol XL, 20 mg. Zocor, and 2,000 mg.
Avatar m tn Usually patients with these risk factors are treated with warfarin or dabigatran and aspirin is used in the patients considered at lower risk for stroke. Nonetheless, the decision as to which treatment is best is between an individual patient and his/her doctor, taking into consideration his/her bleeding risk.
Avatar n tn Sorry to hear about your stroke. The data suggests that aspirin a day is enough treatment for your condition. I know that it sounds like you should have treatment such a coumadin but since you only have 50% blockage, the aspirin is the best choice. If you have comorbid atrial fibrillation then coumadin would be the medication of choice. How is the other carotid? Yes, CCF : : : takes medicare.
Avatar m tn Arthur Agatston taking daily aspirin to prevent heart attack and stroke. Recent research has shed new light on this. Indeed, mounting evidence reported in a number of leading medical journals now suggests that if you’re healthy and not at significant risk for a heart attack, you should not be taking aspirin preventively. That’s because the studies show that aspirin doesn’t reduce the risk of dying from a heart attack or stroke in healthy people.
Avatar n tn I had surgery on my right carotid artery two weeks prior to my lumpectomy in 2007. I already take low dose aspirin. Would that aspirin reduce my risk of blood clots, stroke, etc. if I were to risk the Tamoxifen? Thanks. This discussion is related to <a href='/posts/show/770381'>Aspirin effects tamoxifen</a>.
