We're all men here, mostly over 40. What
meds do you take. I take a beta blocker
and a water pill for blood pressure. The
dosage hasn't changed for 17 years. I
take a coated aspirin for afib, and Allopurinol
for gout.

I'm lucky about the BP, my brothers BP meds
are constantly changing.

Hydrochlorothiazide/Lisinopril to treat high blood pressure. Its a pretty common medication.

allopurinol affects xanthine oxidase pathway... simply take hypoxthanine in your diet.

Warfarin sucks. It's rat poison. Causes
bleeding in the brain you can't eat
leafy green salads. Look up Warfarin/lawsuits
and there are pages of results. There
are studies and studies, my cardiologist
still prescribes aspirin, as does the regular
doc.

No prescription medicines, 1 or 2 aspirin daily for aches and pains - especially for a stiff back in the morning. Arthritis symptoms, the Doc says.

My father was on Warfarin for about 3 years and he hated it. They switched him to apixaban about 15 months ago.

A number of anticoagulants are available. The traditional ones (warfarin, other coumarins and heparins) are in widespread use.
A number of new agents have been introduced that are collectively referred to as the novel oral anticoagulants (NOACs) or directly acting oral anticoagulants (DOACs). These agents include inhibitors of factor IIa (dabigatran) and factor Xa (rivaroxaban, apixaban and edoxaban)

300mg of Allopurinol every morning. coz too many years of big plates of meat for every meal, and all the drinking. Allopurinol is a savior.

I just found out Pepto Bismal does
not go well with Allopurinol. I don't
use Pepto often so it doesn't really
matter to me.
