Here are alternate suggestions.
1.Aspirin is the safest blood thinner or which prevents blood clotting by platelet inhibition. Occasional nose bleed can occur. Since nose bleed is not life threatining , you need to endure it.
2.You may try to space out the dosage or reduce it and see.Doctor need to be kept informed.
3.Alternate Plavix is not useful in such cases.Howevr it is more useful in case Aspirin causes more gastric trouble.
4.One can keep icepack handy and bear the nose bleed. If it is too frquent and impossible to bear, then surgical opnion will be better .
5. Meditation , Praying , Diet control and Happy state of mind can help such situation. God Bless
