Greetings, thank you for your question.

The answer is a general description of the problem you’re having. Please click on this link (DoctorOnCall) to speak with us.

Based on the above information, we understand your concern about the problem you’re having. For your information, in patients taking casprin, the function is to prevent blood clots formation and clumping. This is in order to prevent the clump from dislodging in the heart’s blood vessels causing heart attack. If red dates drink has coagulation properties, this means it allow faster formation of blood clot, which actually works against the casprin. Therefore, you are advised to not proceed with giving the herbal medication.
