What Time Of Day To Take Aspirin For Heart
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

Can i take 81 mg baby aspirin just 3 times a week and still get the heart benefit. What is the aspirin half life.
Hypothetically; If I were to have a heart attack would it be safe for me to take Aspirin and to keep it on me at all times?
Depends: If you already had a heart attack, chronic Aspirin therapy is recommended as the risks of bleeding outweigh the risk of having another heart attack. For primary prevention (to prevent the very first heart attack) it is only recommended for patients at high risk of having a heart attack but not everyone, as it does increase the odds of bleeding. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have Af I take verapamil and aspirin therapy. At times my heart rate drops into the 30's for a few seconds then back to the 60's is that normal?
Several points.: without an exam, I can only give general information and cannot diagnose, treat/prescribe/etc. and, asymptomatic rate changes are not an indication for a pacer nor even necessarily changing therapy. AF requires rate control and stroke prevention. Aspirin alone is not enough and coumadin (warfarin) or the newer anti-stroke medicines are generally recommended. ...Read more
FDA recently stated non-aspirin NSAID can increase risk of heart attack and stroke. As a user of Advil, (ibuprofen) I take 400mg a few times a week or less for headache, some weeks not at all. Should I worry?
NSAIDS: NSAIDS are associated with such side effects. In your case, you are young and NSAIDs may not cause heart attack or stroke at this stage. People with underlying atherosclerosis and with plaque formation in their arteries are at higher risk. If you can avoid, that is preferable as Routine use of NSAIDS may contribute to gastritis, peptic ulcer, kidney damage etc. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer
