    Easy bruising

    Just wondering if there is any connection between easy bruising and the following meds - lexapro, synthroid, and Crestor? I try to avoid anti-inflammatory meds as Id end up looking like a purple, splotchy mess. All of my labs are normal, so Im wondering if easy bruising can me med related or possibly hereditary?

    Re: Easy bruising

    Yes, possibly. Crestor states it as a rare side effect. Are are you taking any supplements....if so, which ones? And are you eating any foods in excess? Reason is that some supplements and foods can thin blood a bit more causing easy bruising.
    On the other hand...Deficiencies of vitamin K, vitamin C, and/or vitamin B-12 may also contribute to easy bruising.
    Thin, fragile skin can cause it as well (which I've inherited).

    It would be a good idea to have blood clotting ability tested.
