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

Is there any harm for younger people to take an aspirin once a day.?

Depends: Like all things in medicine the higher the risk a pt is, the more the reward with therapy. If a pt is younger than 40 yrs of age and very little risk factors the the benefit will be negligable and may cause harm over the long run ( ulcers etc). ...Read more

I take +/- 8 ranitidine 300mg per day for my ulcer it hurts badly. I know aspirin makes it worse but have nothing else for the pain. Is there any harm from the dosage i take of ranitidine?

Different med: You chould not take Aspirin or any nsaid, like ibuprofen. The better alternative is tylenol or acetaminophen. This will not affect your ulcer and will still have definitive pain relief. But if you are taking 8x 300mg of ranitidine, that is too much and you should talk to your doctor about that. There are other more effective meds for the ulcer. ...Read more

If I've stopped taking aspirin and other OTC medicine for over a year, is that bad? Will it cause any harm? Is aspirin good for the heart?

If I've stopped taking aspirin and other OTC medicine for over a year, is that bad? Will it cause any harm? Is aspirin good for the heart?

For example medications to ease pain, relieve anxiety or depression, prevent seizures, etc aspirin reduces risk of mortality from heart disease, but your risk of having any heart disease within the next 30 years is virtually zero. Hard to reduce your risk below that. ...Read more

2 allergists told me taking aspirin won't harm me altho i get 3 or 4 hives after. They say reaction is minor, tho it exists. Not a true alrgy. Safe?

Aspirin allergy?: More severe reactions to Aspirin can occur but i agree it would be unlikely wtih your history. Recent evidence suggests that antihistamines and montelukast (singulair) pretreatment may prevent these hive-like reactions to Aspirin and other nsaids such as Ibuprofen or naproxen. If the Aspirin is for pain relief consider using Acetaminophen instead. ...Read more

I am only take an aspirin once a day. Why blood on tissue when blowing nose?

I am only take an aspirin once a day. Why blood on tissue when blowing nose?

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
