Has anyone heard of the "Aspirin rebound" effect, or is it just a myth ?
I was on 75mg of aspirin for about five years until I stopped taking it (for a variety of reasons). About a week later I had a TIA, and was then prescribed Warfarin.
I've since heard that if one goes "cold turkey" when stopping long term aspirin treatment instead of "phasing it out", it can result in platelet production going into overdrive for a brief period.
Both my GP and consultant poo-pooed the idea. But I feel that the two events were connected in some way.
