A 46-year-old female asked:

Even though aspirin is one of my meds, does it need to taken every day religiously?

No, but try to: Aspirin is not like many medications that are needed to keep something in control like blood pressure or blood sugar. Aspirin's effects are long-acting, so there is little, if any, harm in occasionally missing a pill. But, like with anything, it works best if kept in a steady state, and taking your aspirin daily at nearly the same time will be best. Good wishes:)
