Yes, but...: MKennedy, there are many, many, many, many different brand names for a handful of medications. Aspirin is no different. Simply look no further than the ACTIVE INGREDIENT!

I had a heart attack 6 years ago and currently I take lisinopril, clopidogrel, ecotrin (aspirin) and metoprolol and atorvastatin at night.can I take melatonin?
Yes, but . . .: While there's some debate regarding prolonged combined use of aspirin & clopidogrel, your combination of meds is pretty much standard of care despite mention of interactions at http://www.drugs.com/interactions-check.php?drug_list=243-0,276-0,705-0,1476-0,1548-0,1615-0, tho luckily none w/melatonin. More important fact is for you to discuss all meds w/your prescribing doc or Family Doc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
