How many aspirins a day is it safe to take on a regular daily schedule? I take four 325mg tablets every day.

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

Prednisone is a synthetic cortisone. The body makes cortisone, a natural hormone made in adrenal glands. The body converts it to Hydrocortisone to become active. 25 mg of cortisone has about same effect as 5 mgm prednisone. The average person would produce 3-6 mg of pred daily. So why use a substitute? The synthetic has more anti-inflammatory effect; but has less effect ...Read more

How far apart to safely take Prednisone, Aspirin, Plavix, Metoprolol, Pepcid (famotidine) in AM? And Prednisone, Pepcid (famotidine), Metoprolol in PM?

Combination of meds: pepcid (famotidine) blocks the acid receptors in the stomach and may interfere with the breakdown and therefore absorption of some of the medication you have mentioned...i would suggest taking the pepcid (famotidine) a few hours after your other medications but i know may patients who safely take all of these medications together ...Read more

Is Aspirin and prednisone a contradiction? My father had Essential Thrombositosis and takes aspirin but was just prescribed prednisone

Is Aspirin and prednisone a contradiction? 
My father had Essential Thrombositosis and takes aspirin but was just prescribed prednisone

Not necessarily: The literature describes that caution should be taken when prescribing both but it is not an absolute contraindication. The combination can cause stomach upset and issues, and prednisone may decrease levels of aspirin. However, it all depends what the prednisone was prescribed for since the benefit might be of a lot more value than the risk. Keep an open communication with the prescriber on this ...Read more

Need schedule recommendation taking aspirin, plavix, prednisone, protonix (pantoprazole). I'd like to know in which order to take first, all together or hours apart.

Need schedule recommendation taking aspirin, plavix, prednisone, protonix (pantoprazole). I'd like to know in which order to take first, all together or hours apart.

Timing of Meds: I tell my patients to take Prednisone in the AM, less likely to cause insomnia. Protonix (pantoprazole) should be taken before a meal. Plavix should be taken at the same time every day.Can take the Rx spread out, 2 a day or all at once ...Read more

80 yr old mom takes aspirin, Protonix, (pantoprazole) prednisone and plavix. Need a schedule for when/how to give meds to minimize stomach upset. What order to take?

No specific order: However, there are potential drug-drug interactions (http://www.drugs.com/interactions-check.php?drug_list=243-0,1936-0,705-360,1790-1152). Discuss your concerns w/prescribing physician. Assuming that these are taken just once daily, she may consider taking one w/each meal to minimize too many in stomach at any given time. Bottom line, check w/prescribing doctor. ...Read more
