do voltaren (diclofenac) contain aspirin or nurofen?

No: Although all 3 are non-steroidal anti inflammatory medications, they are also uniquely different chemicals. Neither of them contain the other medication. If you are allergic to Aspirin and nuprofen, you may have trouble taking voltaren (diclofenac) to. Consult your physician before taking.

No: Aspirin was used for a long time to reduce fever in children, that is until doctors found an association between the use of Aspirin and reye syndrome. This condition happened in children who had the flu and received Aspirin for the fever. Reye syndrome is a potentially fatal illness that affects the brain and the liver. You should not use Aspirin to reduce your baby's fever.

Should I take a daily aspirin to prevent stroke?

Dr. Danny Proffitt

Depends: This should be discussed with your pcp. You may have risks that place your at high risk and need for asa or you may have other risks that would preclude your from being on aspirin. Not everyone is amenable to aspirin. Aspirin can have serious side effects. Your medications would dictate this too (or not). Be safe and discuss with your pcp/cardiologist/neurologit or other health care giver.
