Some Medications Do Increase Bruising CandyLipz April 25, 2014 Cupping Marks & Bruising Tips By Candylipz.com If you are using the following medications listed below, consult your medical physician before you use any suction tools or devices on your body. These medications can make your cupping marks very dark. AWARNING: Never stop or take a medication without physician advice. Blood thinners are primarily used to prevent a stroke. These drugs reduce blood clotting ability in the body. This is the reason why you can bleed and bruise more easily. For example, when your blood is thin, more blood can rush out from the broken capillaries and leak into the surrounding tissues of the affected area. If you have low blood clotting factors (gluing substance), they cannot seal up the broken capillaries quickly enough. As a consequence, more blood formation leads to darker and deeper bruising colors. 1. Many prescribed blood thinner drugs include: Aggrenox, Clopidogre, Coumadin, Enoparin, Heparin, Lovenox, Plavix, and Ticlopidine , and other nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). 2.
