Doctor insights on:
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

Does Prednisone Have aspirin in it?
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
