For some reason when I visited my EP two months ago he put me on Eliquis and told me told hold off on the aspirin. My cardiologist told me not to stop the aspirin. Well to make a long story short I never restarted the aspirin. Been feeling fine and a lot of the breathless symptoms I had while exercising are gone for now. Much of my stamina has returned. I was trying to update my medications list and noticed I had aspirin on it so I called the doctor to verify whether I should be taking it along with the Eliquis. He said yes. I haven't had an Afib episode in awhile(that I'm aware of). I'm wondering do I really need it? Wondering if the aspirin along with all the other meds I'm taking for my stents and the Afib might be a factor? To me less is better but this Afib and heart issues is a whole new realm for me . Thanks for letting me sound off here :-)))
