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

What is the recommendation on children under 19 and products that contain aspirin that are used topically not orally? Can they even be around them?

What is the recommendation on children under 19 and products that contain aspirin that are used topically not orally? Can they even be around them?

Confusing wording: We recommend no oral salycalates (aspirin or other salicylate products) in kids under 16 due to an association with Reye syndrome.If given during viral illnesses, specifically flu or chickenpox, liver failure might occur. The condition is almost unheard of today. There is no reason to fear their use in older kids/adults or having them around kids. We still use aspirin in a few kid diseases.

I took two Excedrin Migraine about 24 hours ago, but I'm only 15. Should I be concerned because it contains Aspirin?

No: It is better for you to avoid aspirin, however, the dose and the circumstances under which you took the medication is not a cause for concern. Wish you good health. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex.
