is acetaminophen considered a blood thinner
21 Apr 2006
Well, it is considered a mild analgesic with the side effect of thinning your blood. It doesn't thin as effectively as say Aspirin or prescription meds like Warfarin, but yes, it will thin your blood. If you have been taking it for awhile, you should always make sure you doctor or dentist knows this before you undergo any medical procedures that could involve blood loss, such as surgery or dental extraction.
