Hello. I'd like to ask whether I can give my mum ( 79), supplements (like alpha-lipoic -acid, cinsulin, chromium, magnesium citrate, L-argine, vitamine E, folic acid, two-per-day multivitamin, krill oil, omega 3) , together with the drug Salospir -- which I read is acetylsalicylic adid. 

My mum had a cardiac episode. The doctor prescribed Salospir 100mg once a day at noon. But he doesn't know anything about supplements. My mum is diabetic, so I need to give her at least ALA and chromium. 



Thank you for your time.

The product contains acetylsalicylic acid, which is aspirin, and caffeine.  Because vitamin E and omega-3 fatty acids (including those which occur in krill oil) have, like aspirin, an anticoagulant effect, not everyone can combine them.  It is essential that you discuss this with your physician.

Thank you very much DDye. Ok I won't give any omega 3 or vit E -- I don't have here in Greece any physician that would be able to advise me on this. 
But at least could you inform me about Ubiquinol 100 mg? Can I give it to my mum in the morning, when at midday she takes one salospir 100 mg ? 

Thank you in advance.

Coenzyme Q10 can counteract the anticoagulant effect of blood-thinning drugs.   A search of www.drugs.com did not list any interaction for coenzyme Q10 with aspirin but did list several blood thinners.  Again, it is recommended to consult with her physician, even if he claims to be ignorant on the subject.  He is the only one who can approve her regimen.

I take lot's of natural blood thinners, the addition of only one baby aspirin makes stool bloody the next day (which doesn't happen with the natural ones alone).

My physicians advise to take the prescribed baby aspirin anyway - and quit all supplements. Sure, legally only they can approve of anyone's regimen, practically it's the patient oneself who reaps (in my case) negative effects of their recommendation - and so many benefits by taking nutritional supplements against their strong dis-advise (which they're unable to support with science, just what they learn in medical school: that nutritional medicine would be humbug).

Still, one can never make such health decision for any one other, not even one's mother. She has to weight benefits and adverse reaction and make the decision.

Thank you very much, Pamoja and DDye. As I understand there is noone to guide me with certainty. Now I just give my mum the multivitamin, Ubiquinol, lipoic acid, digestive enzymes and Life flora. All these with the Salospir 100 mg . I hope I'm not doing anything dangerous.
