No, I do not. I have multi organ autoimmune autonomic small fiber neuropathy for which I get IVIG treatments each week, stage IV chronic kidney disease and a pacemaker for bradycardia. My neurologist and nephrologist and cardiologist don’t want me taking more meds than I have to.

I have afib and should be on a blood thinner. However I also have leukemia and after undergoing chemotherapy I am chemo pills which is counterindicated with blood thinners (apparently they increase the possibility of internal bleeding that can not be stopped) so I take the baby aspirin which is not as effective as actual blood thinners but doesn't have the risk.

No, because that's for suckers.  Instead, I take half of an adult aspirin every day because it's cheaper.
