The Dangers of Blood Thinners
A blood thinner is usually composed of several different chemical formations, with the most common blood thinner, and most often used blood thinner being aspirin, taken in doses of 81mg per day, essentially one baby aspirin.
Aspirin has been recognized as a blood thinner for at least 50 years. Aspirin significantly reduces platelet counts. Often, doctors will prescribe a daily dose of aspirin as the only required cardiac medicine for a patient.

- Menstrual bleeding that is much heavier than normal.
- Red or brown urine.
- Bowel movements that are red or look like tar.
- Bleeding from the gums or nose that does not stop quickly.

- Unusual bruising.
