From this study (3 weeks ago):
My husband Brian developed Pancreatic Cancer after being on Pradaxa for two years for Atrial Fibrillation.
He had to have the classic Whipple surgery to remove most of his pancreas, all of his gall bladder, duodenum and the pyloric valve of his stomach. He now faces weeks of chemotherapy.

- Does claritin have an anticoagulant effect?
I thought I had conquered my nosebleed problems with saline nasal mist and saline nasal gel, but now I've started on Claritin (actually Walitin, Walgreen's knockoff) for an unrelated reason and the nosebleeds have started again. Is this because of the Claritin or just a coincidence?
