Ecotrin - 81mg
Dear Doc

I am going for an operation on my feet on Monday - 4 February. I take Ecotrin and I am wondering whether I should stop it a fews days before the op due to maybe excessive bleeding or is it safe to continue with it?

Thank you.

It is important that you consult the surgeon. Ecotrin can be reversed but it is important to note that the Ecotrin is given for a spesific reason and that you should not stop the medication without the prescribing doctor's consent.
