I take 325 mg. of aspirin each day per Dr.'s orders, so when I saw this I thought I'd put this up for others to see, instead of burying it under the "Heart News" thread...Hugs, Teri tongue
Aspirin treatment sometimes a failure

I always knew this. I was put on 325mgs of ecotrin. I stayed on it for four yrs. I started in 1999 and stayed on it until 2002. Unfortunately, i had a heart attack in 2000 and another one in 2002. After that i stopped taking asprin all together.

I did a drug tracker and discovered asprin interferred with my bp meds. It also caused me to have bleeding stomach. I now take vit. e to thin my blood.

I also hear that asprin in women over 50yrs does nothing.

Eeks, I'm over 50 and take 325 mg of ecotrin aspirin. I'm going to ask my dr. about this as well. How many units of Vitamin E do you have to take jtu?
