No sooner had I stopped taking the baby aspirin (because according to a large clinical trial it caused higher rates of bleeding in the brain and was no longer recommended for preventing a first heart attack), than the ziggies started up again.
Here I was feeling my oats because I had found a better way to take the prescribed topiramate, or so I thought, and I had gone a record nine weeks without a ziggy.
Apparently it wasn’t my clever method of taking the topiramate, it was the baby aspirin.
Ever since I’ve stopped taking the aspirin, the ziggies have come back.
With a vengeance.
So now I’m in a quandary. Which is worse? The ziggies or the potential for bleeding in the brain?
