Each ASPIRIN® product has a different formula, so dosing information varies depending on which product you’re taking — and why you’re taking ASPIRIN®.
For use during a suspected heart attack, call 9-1-1 immediately; then chew 2 ASPIRIN® 81mg tablets.
For doctor-supervised long-term preventive therapy, talk to your doctor to learn what’s right for you. Always talk to your doctor before you start, stop or modify any medication.
For pain, read each Consumer Information sheet carefully. If you are already on doctor-supervised daily preventive ASPIRIN® therapy, talk to your doctor about the dosage that is right for you for pain relief.
We cannot guarantee the quality of expired product. ASPIRIN® that’s reached or passed the expiration date on the package may no longer be effective for use as indicated. Please discard any expired product appropriately.
Like all medicines, ASPIRIN® may occasionally produce unwanted side effects. You should call your doctor if you experience: nausea, vomiting, stomach irritation, ringing or buzzing in the ears or pain, or if you notice that you are bruising more easily than you were before starting a daily dose of ASPIRIN®. Regular daily use of alcohol while on ASPIRIN® daily therapy may increase your risk of developing gastrointestinal bleeding.
Stop use and call your doctor if you experience an allergic reaction (skin rash, hives, itching or breathing difficulties); stomach bleeding; loss of hearing or bleeding.
To be sure this product is suitable for you, always read and follow the label.
Enteric/delayed release coating is a delayed-release coating that provides added stomach protection. It is designed to allow the ASPIRIN® tablet or caplet to pass through the stomach to the small intestine (duodenum) before dissolving.
This delayed-release coating means that it will take longer for the ASPIRIN® to be absorbed. For this reason, products with enteric coating are not recommended for quick pain relief and must be chewed if used during a suspected heart attack. Enteric coated ASPIRIN® is most often used by patients who are on long-term daily preventive therapy under their doctor’s recommendation.
According to the ASPIRIN® label, gluten is not listed as an ingredient. However, since raw materials are sourced from various suppliers, we cannot guarantee that it has not come into contact with gluten at some stage. Therefore, we cannot guarantee that ASPIRIN® is 100% free of gluten.
ASPIRIN® 81mg is specially designed for doctor-supervised long-term preventive therapy. It is a smaller dose than you would need to take for a headache or other types of pain and is unlike other pain reliever products such as acetaminophen and ibuprofen. Ask your doctor or pharmacist about other ASPIRIN® products available (or other pain relievers such as acetaminophen or ibuprofen) and the correct dosage for the relief of your headache, fever or arthritic pain. Always consult with your doctor or pharmacist before taking other medications or if you have any concerns.
