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 you are taking Aspirin for its cardioprotectant effect, the dose is considerably lower than what you are taking on the other hand, if you are taking it as an anti-inflammatory agent for osteoarthritis, the dose seems a little low. The doctor who prescribed your Aspirin therapy is the best person to answer this ...Read more

2 doctors agreed:
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

How many aspirins can I take in a day?

How many aspirins can I take in a day?

Aspirin: 2 adult aspirins every 6 hours would be the limit, but you shouldn't take this dose for more than a day or two because of potential irritation of the stomach and duodenal lining and gi bleeding. It is unnecessary to take this theurapeutic dose of aspirin nowadays because of the availability of medication like Tylenol, (acetaminophen)ibuprofen, Aleve, etc and these also have their own precautions. ...Read more

Should I take an aspirin a day? I have hypertension and cholesterol. I'm 50.

Prevention: In view of your age, history of elevated cholesterol and hypertension, I feel that daily aspirin (81mg) is some protection against heart attacks and strokes (not hemorrhagic stroke though). Of course you shouldn't take Aspirin if there are contraindications such as allergy, ulcers, bleeding tendencies, etc. And your blood pressure should be controlled. ...Read more

Can one take Valium (5-10mg/day max, only as needed) and (Bayer) aspirin (regular dose, one pill 3-4 times a day) together for one week?

Can one take Valium (5-10mg/day max, only as needed) and (Bayer) aspirin (regular dose, one pill 3-4 times a day) together for one week?

Yes, usually okay.: Very low to almost no potential for problems from taking Valium and aspirin as you described for one week, though 5 mg of Valium twice a day rather than 10 mg once a day may provide somewhat better control of anxiety. Suggest avoiding Valium and similar medications if you have a personal or family history of alcohol problems due to high potential for addiction. ...Read more

See: See the link below and quotation of the executive writing committee of the american heart association feb 16, 2011.

"aspirin therapy can be useful in women > or = 65 years of age (81 mg daily or 100 mg every other day) if blood pressure is contolled and benefit for ischemic stroke and mi (heart attack) prevention is likely to outweigh risk of gastrointestinal bleeding and hemorrhagic stroke, and may be reasonable for women <65 years of age for ischemic stroke prevention."

I've just started Zoloft (sertraline) and also am supposed to take 1 325mg aspirin per day per Dr instructions. I've read this can cause bleeding. Should I take?

I've just started Zoloft (sertraline) and also am supposed to take 1 325mg aspirin per day per Dr instructions. I've read this can cause bleeding. Should I take?

Discuss with your Dr: Zoloft (sertraline) and other SSRI type medications have the potential to cause bleeding because they increase the anti-platelet action of aspirin. A 2009 review of the medical literature http://1.usa. Gov/1zMVIjj concluded that Because the absolute risk of GI bleeds with SSRIs is low, precautions are probably necessary only in high-risk patients, such as those with history of gastritis, ulcer or bleeding. ...Read more

Several reasons: It may be as simple as a very dry environment with irritation of the skin inside your nose (mucosa) or irritation due to minor trauma. Nevertheless the only way to make sure you are not dealing with something more serious is to have your doctor look in your nose and maybe obtain blood work to insure your blood clotting mechanism is ok. ...Read more
