Talk With Your Doctor About Taking Aspirin Everyday

Page:  1  2 

Take Action!

Your doctor can help you decide if aspirin is the right choice for you. Talk to your doctor about:
  • Your risk of heart attack
  • What kind of aspirin to take
  • How much to take
  • How often to take it

Be sure to tell your doctor about all the other medicines that you take, including vitamins. Aspirin can cause serious side effects and mix dangerously with other medicines.

Start Today: Small Steps
  • Call your doctor or health center. Make an appointment to talk about lowering your risk of heart attack.
  • Write a list of questions to ask your doctor. What kind of aspirin should you take? How much should you take? Should you take it every day?
  • If you already take aspirin, make it easy to remember. Put a note on your bathroom mirror where you will see it each day.
