HEART HEALTH: Aspirin helps thin the blood by a complex biochemical mechanism. The fact is that a heart attack is usually caused from a crack in a cholesterol laden plaque in one of the arteries that feeds the heart muscle. The aspirin, taken regularly, helps prevent the clot from developing and buys the patient time. It doesn't prevent the plaque rupture, but it delays the blockage that the ensuing clot causes ...Read more

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

Stinging pain (mostly right side) in chest, sometimes also felt in neck & near shouldrs. Usualy mild but can intensify. Can aspirin help & what dose?
Probably not needed: You can take aspirin at 81 mg a day, but given that you are 25, this is probably not needed and could lead to easy bruising. Seems like I answered your other question, which seems related to this one. Both of these would be better answered with an established primary care physician (PCP). Also, since you're already on NSAIDs (Advil), better to not start aspirin without PCP recommendations. ...Read more

No worries: Reye syndrome is a rare condition that affects a few children who are recovering from an illness like influenza or chicken pox, who had been taking aspirin or other salicylates.

Should be okay: The combination of Aspirin and Lorazepam does not seem alarming to any extent although I would caution that the propensity to fall while taking Lorazepam for some individuals would make the risk of serious bleed increased.
