Is it good to take an aspirin daily

Is it good to take an aspirin daily

No: For anyone with some vascular event (stroke, heart attack...), the answer is generally yes. As a primary preventive measure in someone with multiple risk factor, possibly yes.

I think my son took 1 aspirin but he won't tell me cause he has Austim ?

No big issue: For years we used aspirin for days at a time for pain and fever reduction in kids, but quit in the 80's after it was associated with liver failure after chickenpox or flu.
