... currently on ecotrin. Do i need to use Clexane for the flight and for how long must I stop the Ecotrin?

I am not familiar with Brand names of drugs/medicines. All I can add is that if you are on warfarin and modify the daily dosage based on monthly PT/INR readings, then your chances of getting another clot are remote.
Generally, it is suggested that if you had a history of DVT, you should wear the anti-DVT socks on flights of over 4 hours. My Brand of choice is Scholl 'Flightsocks'. Visit www.scholl-footcare.com for more information.

Yes you should take your meds on your normal schedule. Are you taking the Clexane 1 a day or 2 a day? If you are having recurring DVTs then you may want to discuss with your doc about taking a supplemental shot of a lower dose of Clexane in addition to your regular dose if you are on 1 a day on your long flights. I would not stop the Ecotrin unless your doc tells you to. Why do you think that you need to stop the Ecotrin?
