kindly guide me whether aspirin 75 or 150 has any difference. My physician has prescribed ecosprin 75 whereas cardiologist says no need for it. I am diabetic hypertensive. Is 75 mg enough for obese person wt 110 lg.
First my apologies for the delay, I was trvelling and did not get the time, nor did I have the facilities to reply. The hotel advertises wifi for its guests but that seems to be just a marketing gimmick.
Aspirin can be used in doses as low as 50 mg and this is adequate. Companies have come out with different strengths only to avoid the label of "copycat".
So also one tablet is adequate for as long as 15 days but it has been noted that if such an advice is given, most patients forget to take it, that is why a daily dose is advocated.
Aspirin does not stay in the body for more than an hour or two, but its inhibition of the enzyme (COX I)is permanent and hence the platelets once exposed to aspirin, become active only when new platelets are formed.
Irrespective of your other problems you will do well with any dose of aspirin between 50 and 150 mg, so please do not worry about it and contine taking a tablet of aspirin daily.
All the best
