Capsicum in Tabasco Pepper may interact with ASPIRIN in Caffeine, Aspirin and Dihydrocodeine
Chemicals in capsicum may reduce the stickiness of blood components called platelets. Platelets are partly responsible for forming blood clots that stop bleeding from injuries. When taken together with drugs like aspirin that also decrease the blood's ability to clot, capsicum can increase the risk of dangerous bleeding. Additionally, in animal studies, blood levels of aspirin were much less than expected when aspirin was given after chronic doses of capsicum. As a result, aspirin may not be effective in relieving pain. Individuals who take both should be aware that pain may not be controlled adequately and that they may need more frequent blood tests to make sure that blood is clotting properly. Those who experience problems may need to stop taking capsicum until aspirin is discontinued. You may want to ask your healthcare provider about this potential interaction if you think you are having problems.

This interaction is poorly documented and is considered minor in severity.
