Male 55 been on 325 aspirin daily for years for primary prevention. Want to reduce to 81 as I understand that is optimal dose. Is it safe to do so?

Discuss with MD?: I think the key question is -have you had a coronary event? If so I would NOT decrease aspirin. Data for PRIMARY prevention is a little less compelling. 81mg would be sufficient to achieve your goals with less risk of ulcer if you are dedicated to doing this without any personal history of event. Note that aspirin may have more compelling preventive effectiveness for colon cancer. Be well ...Read more

Is it safe to take fish oil supplements with a low dose aspirin daily? Cholesterol is 174, I take aspirin because I've had 2 tia's.

Is it safe to take fish oil supplements with a low dose aspirin daily? Cholesterol is 174, I take aspirin because I've had 2 tia's.

Yes: Both low dose aspirin and fish oil reduce risk of blood clots. They have a synergistic effect & also work together to reduce inflammation, the major underlying cause of cardiovascular disease.
Some advise exercising caution as this combo may slightly increase risk of bleeding but I consider them quite safe together. Your risk of clotting is more than risk of bleeding.

How long can a person safely take Advil, a 200 mg dosage daily? Does switching to aspirin make a difference, or do they both harm the body same?

Why do you need to: Take this medication daily. If you are in pain all the time, you need to consult a doctor to find out why and address the underlying cause. No medication is entirely safe and taking any medication daily for a long time will have adverse side effects.

Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually.
