Same time: Due to aspirin's effects on the platelets, as long as you take it at a similar time each day, the particular time of day does not have such a great impact.

What time of the day is best to take a baby aspirin for heart health purposes?

What time of the day is best to take a baby aspirin for heart health purposes?

Glad you asked!: Aspirin irreversibly binds platelets for the life of the platelet (which is 10 days). Every day, our bodies make new platelets replacing the 10% that is lost. When you take one single aspirin, you have an antiplatelet ("blood thinning") effect that lasts at least 5 days (50% of your circulating platelets). Bottom line: it doesn't matter what time you take the aspirin. The effect lasts a long time. ...Read more

Was just given baby aspirin for first time in er. How long would it take for salicylate intolerance or pseudoanaphylaxis to present?

Stop: Please go see your family doctor. Do not take the Aspirin until you have been cleared by a physician who knows you well. I see nothing in your history that would have warranted an er visit. You have chronic medical problems and possibly some mental health issues that could be stress caused by these conditions. It is always best to keep this in the primary care medical clinic. ...Read more

Not standard of care: Autoimmune hepatitis is treated with immunosuppressive medications including steroids or azathioprine. Aspirin is not treatment for aih and there is no evidence that using it either with or without pregnancy has any beneficial effect on the natural course of this disease. You should be followed closely by a gastroenterologist during your pregnancy to ensure that the disease remains under control. ...Read more

My cousins heart races. And she takes a baby aspirin. My heart has been racing every day during ovulation. I took a baby aspirin today. Will it help?

Palpitations: Aspirin is of no therapeutic benefit for palpitations. I would recommend you have an evaluation to determine the cause of your symptoms, as that would dictate appropriate treatment. Cutting back on caffeine and alcohol and over the counter cold remedies with phenylephrine may stop the problem, so try that first. ...Read more

Is it OK to take vicodin and a baby aspirin a day 81mg as a preventative? Does 81mg aspirin help with high cholesterol?

Not vicodin: Vicodin is hydrocodone and is a dangerous opiate painkiller. Lawfully you cannot even have it without a physician's close supervision, and if you use it casually, you'll end up enslaved to its subtle addictive powers. Aspirin is worthless as a means of managing cholesterol though in some people it counters atherosclerosis by other mechanisms. Your physician is your guide. ...Read more

I have lots of bruising on the front & out side of my leg. I do take 1 baby aspirin a day & inhaled steroids. What is causing this. Sore in spots.

I have lots of bruising on the front & out side of my leg. I do take 1 baby aspirin a day & inhaled steroids. What is causing this. Sore in spots.

Purpura: Easy bruising can have many causes. One of the more common causes is minor trauma--hands, forearms, legs--in people on blood thinners. Something that accelerates bruising is the use of either topical or systemic steroids. I think your Aspirin and inhaled steroids are causing/worsening the problem. Do not stop them, but talk to your doctor for options. ...Read more
