Any time.: Aspirin's antiplatelet effect lasts for approximately 8 days; therefore, it does not matter what time of day one takes a daily dose. ...Read more
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

I already take a baby aspirin for heart health. Can I take a higher dose for hip pain after a fall?
Yes and no:
Aspirin interferes with blood clotting mechanisms. Therefore immediately after a fall if there is any suspicion of active bleeding it should not be used along with other agents, such as ibuprofen.
After a fall with resulting in hip pain I would be concerned with impending hip fracture versus muscular trauma which requires a thorough examination.
If there is no danger adult dosage may be used. ...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 is safe for everybody in the country to take a baby aspirin daily to help prevent a heart attack?
NO: Routine use of any medication to the population at large can create newer problems that we are not anticipating before. Low dose Aspirin can prevent platelet aggregation and decrease the incidence of coronary thrombosis in high risk patients. People with diabetes mellitus, obesity, family history of heart disease or previous myocardial infarction are the prime people to benefit from Aspirin therapy. ...Read more
Depends: That is a good question. I'd recommend you talk with your doctor about your cardiovascular risk (including risk for heart attack) and also at the risks and benefits of Aspirin therapy, and then together come up with the right answer for you individually. ...Read more

My family history in general have heart problems. They want me to take a baby aspirin but refuse is this bad? I do take fermented cod liver oil 1 gram
You're only 24?: There has never been a study that has shown benefit in men or women in your age range who take aspirin for primary prevention. Unless there's more in your history that has not been revealed, I would agree with you. (what makes you think fermented cod liver oil is beneficial and has no potential for harm?) ...Read more
Interference: They interfere with each other. If you must take ibuprofen, you should take the Aspirin 1 hour before or at least 4 hours after any Ibuprofen or the Aspirin will not be able to provide the platelet inhibitory ("blood thinning" effect. Ibuprofen does not prevent heart disease and there is data that like other nsaids, it increases it slightly. ...Read more
Would it hurt a 20 year old to take a baby aspirin? My heart races from anxiety especially during the 2 weeks before my period, and I also get sad.
Baby aspirin: It would not hurt a 20 year old to take a baby aspirin, but baby Aspirin may not help heart racing, anxiety, or depression before your period. It may help lower abdominal cramping that is common in the premenstrual period, though. You could be having other premenstrual syndrome symptoms and need evaluation for their severity. Please consider seeing your physician about this. ...Read more
Have multiple heart attacks in family history. Taking 25mg atenonlol & 81 mg baby aspirin nightly. Can I also take Advil or ibuprofen for headaches?
Yes: All anti-inflammatory medications increase risk for a cardiovascular event (mi, stroke, death). These risk seems to be associated with higher doses. So it's best if you take the lowest possible dose for a short duration. The other concern with nsaids and Aspirin is increase risk for GI bleed. If you have risk factor for this you have to be cautious and may want to take some zantac (ranitidine) with it. ...Read more
I am currently on warfarin, 81 mg baby aspirin, and metoprolol after two open heart surgeries. I have a horrible sore throat/cold. What can I take?
See below: The use of baby Aspirin has been suggested as it decreases platelet function. This means that clots cannot form as easily, specifically in the coronary arteries. It is not something a 34 year old should be trying unless suggested by a physician. ...Read more
Depends: Assuming you tolerate low dose Aspirin and have had no event or multiple risk factors, epidemiologic data would suggest that men may benefit in their 40s, women in their 50s, for the anti-platelet protective effect on anti-atherothrombotic plaque conversion from stable to vulnerable lesions. If, however, you've already had an event (secondary prevention), then Aspirin is useful at any age. ...Read more
Prevents clots: When cholesterol forms in the wall of an artery, it makes the lining of the artery more likely to break open. When it opens, the body responds by trying to heal the opening with a blood clot which initially forms with platelets. If this clot closes off the entire artery, it causes a heart attack. Aspirin and other antiplatelet medications keep the clot from blocking all the blood flow. ...Read more
Yes: There are studies that have shown benefits of Aspirin beyond heart disease like decrease in colon cancer risk, and stroke. Of course there are also potential serious side effects you have to worry about. Before you start taking Aspirin you need to consult with your doctor to make sure it does not interfere with any other medications you may be taking as well monitor you for any potential problems. ...Read more
