    Hi. No, I'm on Warfarin which I hate as I can only eat a tiny amount of greens.

    Discuss it (firmly) with your doctor. My problem is also that my blood pressure

    just won't come down. Am on a horrible tablet called Physiotens and am hoping

    to get off it soon. All I want to do is to sleep.

    The reason aspirin should not be taken with blood thinners is because aspirin also thins the blood, which increases your risk of serious bleeding. Speak to your doctor, but I'm on Eliquis and was told that I should not take any NSAID painkillers (which includes Nurofen, Voltaren, aspirin, etc), so I only take paracetamol these days.

    I have just seen your other post, I am surprised you have been given aspirin as well as apixaban, I would be scared of thinning the blood too much. Where is your clot?
