Hello,

My father, a diabetic from last 10 years, suffered from a heart attack 2 months back and had an angioplasty done with 2 stents implanted.

He has been prescribed medicines such as Aspirin (Ecosprin-AV 150 ) and Clopidogrel (clopilet 75) among others.

After taking these medicines for 2 months, he suffered from extreme gastrointestinal bleeding and had to be hospitalized under ICU care and was also administered 6 bottles of blood. Now he is fine, but it is known that the main undesirable side effects of aspirin are gastrointestinal bleeding, stomach bleeding, etc especially in higher doses.

My doctor tells me that it is necessary to continue with the aspirin for the sake of stents implanted. I am afraid that continuing with this medicine may cause another bout of stomach/gasto-intestinal bleeding in future. If it is extreme necessary to take these medicines, can a lower dose reduce the risk of bleeding? His average platelet count is in the range of 150,000.

What should be done? I know any step has to be taken with a proper medical/doctor advice. I am looking to gain further information which may help me sit with the doctor again and work upon a solution for this.

Do they currently have him on any medications to reduce stomach acid and/or help protect his stomach? Such as an antacid or proton pump inhibitor?

Even a form of enteric coated aspirin could help prevent the damage.

On top of those suggestions, he also needs to closely watch his diet, since anything spicy can contribute to stomach damage, as well as caffeine, coffee and very hot foods.
