Is it safe to take one adult aspirin a day if I have pain? My doc told me it was safe as long as I "tolerated" it well.

In brief: Asa

Usually one Aspirin is safe though there are occasional bleeds with this dose.

In brief: Yes, maybe

An Aspirin a day can benefit men over the long run to decrease heart disease.
In women, long term usage is less effective. If you take a lot of aspirin, it may cause GI irritation and actually bleeding. Thus, make sure you take it with food to help decrease this.
