Do You Take Aspirin Daily?
During American Heart Month, the FDA is reminding the public that only health care providers can determine if taking daily aspirin is safe. Aspirin is commonly used to treat minor pain and fever, but regular use to lower the risk of heart attack or stroke is effective only in certain people. Studies show that it seems to be more effective for those who have already had a previously heart attack or stroke or who have disease of the blood vessels in the heart. Also, taking aspirin daily can have harmful side effects. The blood-thinning properties of aspirin can cause bleeding in the brain or stomach. Source: FDA Consumer Education.
