Hi!
Yes, blood thinners which increase bleeding risk are better avoided in PXE disease. However, there is no absolute contraindication. The patient and caregiver has to be vigilant for signs of bleeding like blood in saliva, black stool, bleeding under skin (bruises), blood spots in eye, nose bleeds etc. There may be increased risk of bleeding in brain as well. However, patients who have suffered from stroke do need to be on blood thinners. This need is greater than the risk of bleed due to the drug. Also, you can ask for repeated prothrombin time or INR levels to assess his risk of bleeding. Please discuss this with your doctor. Take care!

The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history. Hence this reply to your post should only be considered as a guiding line and you must consult your doctor at the earliest for your medical problem.
