Can I Use Aspirin Externally While Breastfeeding
How many aspirins a day is it safe to take on a regular daily schedule? I take four 325mg tablets every day.
Aspirin Dose: This is a difficult question to answer without knowing why you are taking it.

If sick, pump and dump for 8 hours and it should be fine thereafter. ...Read more
