Aspirin is a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug, literally, it is an anti-inflammatory drug, in fact, it is not only this one role, it also has the role of antipyretic and analgesic, anti-rheumatic, prevention of blood clots, treatment of biliary roundworm, etc., we see the role of aspirin is not very powerful, but different people have different degrees of sensitivity to different things, it also caused aspirin is not so perfect, it still has side effects, the following we will learn the side effects of aspirin it.
1,Gastrointestinal reactions. Different people have different kinds of flora in their stomachs as well as different amounts, so some people will experience nausea, vomiting, upper abdominal discomfort or pain, and other symptoms. Oral aspirin can directly irritate the gastric mucosa causing epigastric discomfort and nausea and vomiting. Long-term use is likely to cause damage to the gastric mucosa, resulting in gastric ulcers and gastric bleeding, so when we use it for a long time, we should monitor blood images, do fecal occult blood tests and necessary gastroscopy.
2,Allergic reactions to aspirin. Aspirin can cause rash, angioneurotic edema, asthma and other allergic reactions in allergy-prone people, mostly in middle-aged people or patients with rhinitis and nasal polyps. This is because aspirin will inhibit the production of prostaglandins will lead to allergies.
3,Central nervous system. Neurological symptoms usually appear when the dose is high, symptoms are headache, dizziness, tinnitus, visual and hearing loss, when the dose is too large, there may be confusion, convulsions and even coma, but the symptoms can be completely restored after 2 to 3 days of discontinuation of the drug. High doses can also cause neurotic vomiting and dizziness.
4,Liver and kidney damage. The side effects of aspirin also include hepatic and renal toxicity. Aspirin is decomposed in the liver and then excreted through the kidneys, so the decomposition of aspirin requires the use of liver and kidney function, resulting in a decrease in liver and kidney function, so use with caution if the liver and kidney function is not adequate.
The above is my introduction to the side effects of aspirin. I believe you now know the allergic reactions, gastrointestinal reactions, central nervous system, and liver and kidney damage of aspirin, and since you have a deeper understanding of aspirin, I think you must follow medical advice when using such drugs. Finally, I wish you all good health.
