How long does aspirin stay in your system?

Depends on dosage-: Half-life = 2-3 hours for low dose, and about 30 hours for higher dosage. Because of the way it acts on your system, especially platelet, it exerts its effect for about 1 wk, hence you are often advised not to take aspirin/aspirin-related products for about 5-7 days before surgery. So, I would say a week is a safe bet here. Good luck. ...Read more

Can I take 2 aspirins a day to thin my blood?

Yes, but depends: The issue is why you may need to thin your blood. Aspirin is a good, relatively safe, inexpensive antiplatelet agent. Sometimes, though, antiplatelet activity is not adequate "blood thinning", e.g., for phlebitis or artificial heart valve protection (especially mitral valve), or an acute stroke. For long term use, or less critical circumstances, Aspirin in varying doses may be adequate. ...Read more
