I Had a stroke 4 months ago,A few weeks before my 60th birthday. I seemed to be recovring well. Diagnosed with AFIB.. A mild case of AFIB. Low heartrate ( 50-80 avg) and no rapid or fast heartbeat like some people here report..Trying to avoid Coumadin or Pradaxa to avoid a stroke, I should at least take aspirin. I have been reading quite a few artaicles and posts since I found this Website. Also eating a lot of natural foods to thin my blood..
Some folks claim aspirin upsets thier stomach.. After my storke The Hospital had me on 1 325mg aspriin daily. So far it doesnt seem to upset my stomach. although some days I feel really good I haved passed on the aspirin. I always take 1 25mg metroprol daily.. I see some people here have swithched to the 80 mg dose of Aspirin.. I wonder if I should also swithch to maybe taking the 80mg dose 3 times a day which is a total of 240mg, 4 times a day would eqaul 320mg or one adult dose aspirin.. I assume that would assure the Aspirin was in my system night and day.
When I was back to work a few weeks ago, I worked with a 52 year old man who I notifced him taking at least 4 Aspirin during a 8 hour work day. I asked him if he had a problem, he didnt want to talk about it but says it dont affect him. Maybe the 2 or 3 packs of cigarettes he smokes daily coats his stomach..
