Ask you Dr.: Most commonly, aspirin can be used, but with different strokes you may not want to take a blood thinner. Your Doctor who knows your case best will be able to tell you if aspirin is the drug for you. Best wishes.

Call 911: I'm not sure actually what you are asking. Aspirin is the best prevention for heart attack and stroke. Taking 1 baby aspirin (81 mg) each day reduces incidence of stroke and heart attack in adults with risk factors for atherosclerosis. It is also good first aide if someone is thought to be experiencing symptoms of stroke or heart attack to give the person Aspirin 325 mg. First, Call 911.
