Does Aspirin Work for Everyone to Prevent the Blood Clots?

Since aspirin reduces the ability of bloods platelets to stick to each other, it’s often prescribed to those not only at risk of a clot-related stroke, but also for those who have certain blood vessel diseases.

But you need to avoid aspirin if you have the following conditions:

Pregnancy, unless prescribed by your doctor
High blood pressure
Bleeding disorders
Asthma, in some cases
Aspirin allergy or sensitivity
Side effects of aspirin therapy include increased risk of stomach bleeding and kidney failure.

If you’re worried about DVT, talk to your doctor about your individual risk factors and the things you can do to minimize those risks.
