    I am a heart patient.

    My age is 55 years.Wt is 50 kg, Height 163 cms

    Last year Bypass Surgery was carried out.

    After that I am regularly taking Aspirin tablets for thinning of blood.

    But I have observed that if there is small wound anywhere it takes lot of time for recovery because due to this tablet clotting of blood becomes difficult.

    There may be other unknown side effects of this tablet.

    If anybody has noticed other side effects pls share your experience.

    Also if anybody is taking any other medicine pls share the experience

    You can try using wheat grass juice. It contains omega-3 fatty acids which have several health benefits. I've personally seen it having incredible effects on men of an advanced age.

    The best results are obtained by growing the wheat grass yourself

    Given that the concern is post-surgery blood clots, and the treatment is aspirin to thin the blood and reduce the clotting potential, any treatment that satisfies the desired effect (reduction of clotting) will also cause the unwanted effect (reduction of clotting at wound sites).

    So unless you can convince your doctor to move away from his/her current treatment of clotting reduction, I'd say you're out of luck.

    Omega-3 fatty acids are a good recommendation in general, however I don't see how they would help this particular situation.

    edit: as for the side-effects of aspirin: http://www.drugs.com/sfx/aspirin-side-effects.html

    Omega 3 fatty acids also increase clotting time and may be less severe than aspirin. But of course, such things should be done with the consent of the surgeon, which is why I gave a nutritional remedy, rather than a daily dose of pharma. Wheat grass has additional benefits on health and I prefer holistic remedies rather than targeted ones.

    as far as i know there are only 2 other choices
    Heprin or worfrin
    Heprin has to be adminstered by IV but is VERY fast acting which is why its used post heart atack in hospitals. Worfrin can be taken orally but has to build up in your system before its effective which is why pts are normally kept on heprin until worfrin can build up and only then are they releaced from hospital with worfrin tablets

    There is another widely recognized drug - Plavix. That's what I was given following the placement of two stents.

    Take 25mg of Tenormin on a daily basis and it should have a better effect without the side effects:

    The generic name for Plavix and Iscover is Clopidogrel. Generic names are very easy to look up in Wikipedia. Anyone in the medical profession needs to become familiar with the process. Also this is an area in which you will absolutely have to put more effort into your spelling. If you spell diazepam and Valium wrong you probably won't find them.

    Start with pronunciation. There's no R phoneme in "diazepam," a name derived from the family name of the benzodiazepine drugs, which also include flurazepam, (Dalmane), and clorazepate (Tranxene).

    http://www.tga.gov.au/adr/aadrb/aadr0408.htm#a2

    note its not its own page, you will have to scroll down to it. At this stage its number 2 but being a goverment website which is regually updated it could fall further or be removed

    I am a heart patient.
    I take Antiplar Plus (Aspirin + Clopidogrel) for thinning of blood.
    Recently I have ear infection.
    There is liquid discharge from ear.
    For last two months it is there.
    I am afraid to take other biocide drug because of their side effects .

    Anybody has similar problem and how is it solved?

    I'm not going to even ask the details of the discharge - either there is a serious imbalance in the inner ear or it's badly infected - either way, you need a properly qualified doctor (hopefully an ear, nose and throat specialist) look at the problem.
