Symptoms, conditions and causes

Do blood-thinning medications cause bruising?

Blood-thinning medications can cause excessive bruising because they prevent clots from stopping blood loss. If you are on blood thinners or calcium channel blockers (for example, in some blood pressure medications) they can cause easy bruising. If you suspect this is the reason, consult with your doctor.

Remedy:

  • Ask your doctor to reevaluate your medication dosages.

    Other Cause:

  • Gastric bypass
