Aspirin has anticoagulant, anti-inflammatory, antipyretic and analgesic effects. It is mainly used for the following diseases: inhibition of thrombosis, such as prevention and treatment of myocardial infarction, stroke, angina pectoris and postoperative thrombosis. Antipyretic and analgesic. Rheumatic fever, arthritis. Biliary ascariasis. Cutaneous mucosal lymph node syndrome in children (also known as Kawasaki disease). Your doctor may prescribe this medicine for other reasons.
If you cannot use aspirin under the following circumstances, please tell your doctor about all the confirmed diseases and the treatment plan you are receiving: you have had urticaria or allergic reaction, gastrointestinal bleeding or perforation due to the use of non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (such as butazone and Celebrex). Asthma, or asthma after using salicylate or substances containing salicylic acid (especially non steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs). Peptic ulcer or history. Bleeding (including gastrointestinal bleeding) or at risk of bleeding (such as hemophilia or thrombocytopenia, hemorrhagic constitution).
Nasal polyp syndrome. Severe liver and renal failure. Severe heart failure. Coronary artery bypass grafting will be or has been performed in the near future. Aspirin can only alleviate symptoms when used for antipyretic and analgesic, but can not treat the cause of disease. You may need to be treated for the cause at the same time. Medication in children with influenza or chickenpox may increase the risk of Reynold’s syndrome, a toxic side effect that severely damages the liver and brain, characterized by vomiting and confusion. It’s best not to give drugs to children. If children continue to vomit after medication, please see a doctor in time. The elderly have an increased risk of gastrointestinal bleeding and perforation after medication. If medication is needed, please monitor closely for discomfort.
Aspirin passes easily through the placenta. Medication within 20 weeks of pregnancy may increase the risk of abortion. Massive medication in the last 3 months of pregnancy may lead to prolonged pregnancy and fetal cardiopulmonary toxicity (such as contraction or early closure of arterial catheter). For pregnant women, please consult a doctor or pharmacist first. If medication is used, ultrasound examination shall be carried out regularly.
After medication, the milk contains aspirin. Breastfeeding women should stop breastfeeding if they take drugs. If you are breastfeeding, please inform your doctor so that you can make better treatment choices.
If you use enteric coated and sustained-release dosage forms, in order to avoid toxic and side effects, you’d better swallow them completely without breaking, crushing or chewing.
If you are taking effervescent tablets, please dissolve the tablets with warm water before taking them. Do not swallow directly, so as to avoid the rapid release of a large amount of gas in the oral cavity and gastrointestinal tract, stimulate the mucosa and cause accidents.
Aspirin stimulates the gastrointestinal tract. Except for enteric coated tablets, please take other dosage forms after meals to reduce gastrointestinal discomfort. Because eating will increase the pH value in the stomach and stimulate the dissolution of enteric coated tablets in the stomach in advance, please take enteric coated tablets at least 30 minutes before meals. Failure to follow the doctor’s advice or instructions may affect the curative effect and increase toxic and side effects.
Drinking alcohol during medication may increase the risk of gastrointestinal ulcer and gastric bleeding. Please avoid drinking alcohol or alcoholic beverages.
You are more likely to bleed during medication. Please avoid injury, such as using a soft toothbrush or electric razor.
If you have tonsillectomy or oral surgery, you’d better not use chewing tablets within 7 days after the operation. In order to avoid drug overdose, please do not take other drugs containing antipyretic and analgesic ingredients (such as some compound anti cold drugs) at the same time. Aspirin may induce or aggravate hypertension. It is recommended that you closely monitor your blood pressure during medication. It may be necessary to regularly check hematocrit, liver function and serum salicylic acid content when taking large amounts of drugs for a long time. The following side effects may occur after administration:
Side effects such as heartburn, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, diarrhea and slight gastrointestinal bleeding may occur after medication.
Long term overdose may lead to drowsiness, dizziness and confusion.
