According to Blue Cross, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) says that studies show aspirin lowers the risk of heart attacks and other health problems in some patients. But taking aspirin doesn’t fix everything, and it isn’t for everyone.
What to ask your doctor about taking Aspirin:
- Is taking aspirin a good idea for me?
- What are the risks?
- How much should I take?
- Will it cause problems with the other drugs and vitamins I take?
