GODAMED, Acetylsalicylic acid Interactions

  • When taking the drug with other drugs
    • Please tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking / using or have recently taken / used any other medicines, including medicines obtained without a prescription.
    • The effect of the treatment can be influenced if acetylsalicylic acid is taken together with medicines for the following diseases:
      • Blood clots (e.g. warfarin)
      • Organ rejection after transplantation (ciclosporin, tacrolimus)
      • High blood pressure (such as diuretics and ACE inhibitors)
      • Pain and inflammation (such as steroids and anti-inflammatories)
      • Gout (probenecid)
      • Cancer or rheumatoid arthritis (methotrexate)
    • The effect of the drugs or groups of drugs listed below can be influenced by simultaneous treatment with the drug.
    • Enhancement of the effect up to an increased risk of side effects:
      • anti-coagulant medicines, e.g. B. Heparin: Acetylsalicylic acid may increase the risk of bleeding if taken before treatment to dissolve blood clots. Therefore, if you are about to undergo such treatment, you should watch out for signs of external or internal bleeding (e.g. bruises)
      • other antiplatelet agents (medicines that stop platelets from sticking together and clumping together, e.g. ticlopidine, clopidogrel)
      • with alcohol consumption: the risk of gastrointestinal ulcers and bleeding is increased
      • Medicines to lower blood sugar (anti-diabetic drugs, e.g. sulphonylureas): the blood sugar level may drop
      • Digoxin (medicine to strengthen the heart)
      • Valproic acid (medicine used to treat brain seizures [epilepsy]).
    • If medicinal products containing ibuprofen are used at the same time, the anticoagulant effect of low-dose acetylsalicylic acid (preventing blood clots from forming) may be impaired. An interaction is unlikely with occasional ibuprofen use.
