  • Hi there, well done for contacting us, the right place to ask questions. First of all it would help us to know where you are, and where your patients was diagnosed and treated as we can probably help with directing you where to find help, and or which papers to take to the GP etc and where the nearest place is with the knowledge of this disease profile. Thanks Mary F

  • Well . . . Problem is. . . Like most other meds, asprin is safe except when its not. Doctors are the ones who can iD those specific symptoms which would preclude asprin. So, yeah, help us help you find a local doc who we can ID as experienced with APLS. Because again, asprin is safe, except when it's not. And you need a doc to ID those " not scenarios.

  • Hi you need to get permission from the doctor and if not them, if you patient has a consultant, I take aspirin twice a day on a full stomach, but this on the advice of my professor and backed up by GP. This sounds complicated, and you are doing the right thing.. I hope the GP is being supportive for your patient and if not you may have to get their MP involved to fight for normal and consistent local care. Please let us know if we can be of any further use. You may wish to try and contact the hospitals involved to get some help. Mary F x
