    Taking aspirin with cod liver oil may cause bleeding problems. Because cod liver oil may lower blood pressure and prevent blood clotting, drugs that accomplish these same goals, including antihypertensives and anticoagulants, may cause unsafe drops in blood pressure or blood-clotting ability. You should eat a low-fat, high-fiber diet while on cod liver oil.
