Aspirin Shelf Life
Aspirin = bad idea: Assisted-dying is not illegal in about 5 states in the U.S., so if an adult there has a terminal illness, or is in a comparably bad situation, she has the right as a free American to choose her own destiny. However, many people become suicidal for other reasons, which are often temporary (breaking up with a loved one, loss of a job, etc...), so calling 911 to save them gives them a second chance.See 1 more doctor answer
Would I be able to live in full life after I overdosed on aspirin in 2012. the level went up to 75. or have it perhaps damaged my body?
You should be fine: There is no lasting damage from salicylate overdose. So don't spend much time worrying about that, rather concentrate on managing your life so that depression will not interfere with it. There are many useful resources online, but most people will need help from time to time and/or medications from a professional. Good luck, and congratulations for tending to your physical & mental health!See 1 more doctor answer

It's not: Aspirin, although, used for anticoagulation, is drastically different from warfarin. It acts upon platelets preventing their aggregation, whereas warfarin acts upon clotting factors (proteins) in the liver, therefore being much stronger in its ability to thin blood. For DVT prophylaxis warfarin is indicated and Aspirin is not.

Mitral valve repair: Many mitral valve repair operations involve the implantation of a ring around the valve annulus. The ring is covered with cloth. Clots can form on the ring, or in other parts of the heart.

No: We have not used Aspirin or Aspirin like products in kids under age 16 for decades after it was tied to a rare cause of liver failure/death.
