London: Aspirin and warfarin, a drug also used as rat poison, are equally effective in preventing heart strokes, a new study says.However, aspirin was safer because fewer patients suffered bleeding brought on by side-effects such as excessive blood thinning.The study, coordinated by Columbia University Medical Centre, New York, concluded that for most patients with heart failure, who do not have other problems such as irregular beats or narrowing of the arteries, aspirin would be a better choice.Warfarin is difficult to take because it interacts with other drugs and some foods, necessitating regular monitoring of patients to check that their blood is not thinning or remaining too sticky, the New England Journal of Medicine reports.
