aspirin a day in question

Elderly people in good health should not take an aspirin a day, according to a major study in the US and Australia.

There are proven benefits of the drug for people after a heart attack or stroke.

But the trial found no benefit for healthy people over the age of 70, and the pills increased the risk of potentially fatal internal bleeding.

Experts described the results as very important and cautioned against self-medicating with aspirin.

People are prescribed aspirin after a heart attack or stroke because the drug thins the blood and reduces the chances of a repeat attack.

Some completely healthy people also choose to take aspirin to reduce their risk and there is continuing research into whether the drug can be used to cut the risk of cancer.

However, most research on the benefits of aspirin is performed on people in middle age and there is mounting evidence the dangers increase as we get older.

My doctor has me taking one 81mg enteric coated aspirin a day as preventive due to a few medical problems. As I just turned 70 a few months ago will be reviewing this with him during my next annual physical in late Feb.

From what I have read I decided to take a low dose aspirin daily. People should take the initiative to learn what is proper for them to to maintain their good health. I was slow to do so and think that I am paying the price for my neglect.

Same here. Two leaves a day. Have trees in the yard. Excellent.

Anyone looking for bael, there is a capsule form in many brands all over the Internet. Read up.

At one time it was difficult to find the 81 mg aspirins so I was taking 325 mg. My doctor was quite adamant that I quit taking them and that the hospital had 81 mg tablets if I couldn't get them at the local pharmacies. I was surprised that Boots had the 81 mg but I couldn't buy them without a prescription. ?? No problem now. Most pharmacies have the 81 mg size and I can get them without a prescription. I'll continue taking them until the doctor advises me to stop.
