In the following month to each session of elastic ligature, it is important not to take any medicines that can alter the mechanisms of blood coagulation, specially the anticoagulant ones (Heparin, Sinthrome, etc.) or anti-aggregant platelets (Tiklid, Aspirine, Adiro, Plavix, etc.) as well as most anti-inflammatory medicines. The existence of an ulcer at the same level of the rings could provoke bleeding between fifteen and twenty days after their placing. This normally happens with any ulcer somewhere else, if these kind of medicines are taken.
It is important to mention the prohibition of the acetylsalicylic acid, which is the sole or partial component of the Aspirine, Adiro, Couldina, Alka-Seltzer, etc.
In case of needing an analgesic, please use Nolotil, Termalgin, Gelocatil, Dolagial, etc.
The appearance of haemorrhage between fifteen and twenty days after the session of elastic ligature is extremely rare in patients who have not taken medication that interfere with coagulation.
