Many doctors prescribe aspirin with Coumadin. I've been taking 81mg for years with my Coumadin. The key is simple, you must monitor the levels. Once you are stable with the aspirin, continue to monitor and you should not have a problem. Diet and meds play an important role in your INR level. If you maintain the same basic diet, your level will stay fairly steady. If you decide that this week You are going to eat spinach and kale and you have not been eating it, the vitamin K will cause your level to change. It's the same with meds. Any change in meds may effect your level. Again, this is why it is so important to your health and well being to continue to monitor and note any changes in diet or meds. Just remember, a person that tries to be his own doctor has a fool for a patient. Regards. Ron Wells
Hi Adam, it's been a while since I wrote, however, it has come to my attention by my doctor and others regarding people not taking their Coumadin and not having their levels checked on a regular basis. I can't tell you how important is is to take the med and to have the level checked. There is a danger of stroke or bleeding. You can't become too comfortable with the fact that you have gone along for months with no change. After 30 plus years of taking it, I learned. Take care, take your meds, your life depends on it. Regards to all.
