Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hi! I am Dr Saleem. Welcome to JA.
Thank you for the question. I will be answering your query shortly.
I understand your concern.
Blood thinner like Ticagrelor can be stopped cold turkey and it won't cause any problems if you do that.
Dual blood thinners like Aspirin and Ticagrelor are usually given for at least a year after heart attack. After that, the doctor may decide to stop or continue that. The decision has to be individualised and there's no fixed rule.

You can take Tablet Tylenol for pain as its safe with blood thinners. You should avoid Ibuprofen or Aleve. You could be developing an outer ear infection but that'll need an examination to confirm.
You're most welcome.
