Aspirin may be safe for those with brain bleeds

'Unexpected' findings are reassuring for those with previous haemorrhage: study

Aspirin may be safe in patients who have had an intracerebral haemorrhage and may even lower the risk of a repeat event, a new study suggests.

Researchers say the findings are reassuring for patients who have had a brain bleed but who need antiplatelet therapy, as the medications probably do not increase the risk of recurrent haemorrhagic stroke.
