Default Baby Aspirin

Hello,
I had pain (some time mild and sometimes moderate ) in my left arm (upper area) and above the chest since 4-5 days. One of my friend suggested me to consult with any cardiologist as I am diabetic.

I took the appointment and had approx 20 min discussion with him. He chekced by blood report etc. He also did ECG and other basic check-up. He told me that everything is normal and this pain is not related to any heart related issue However further he suggested to have stress test for 100% sure.

He suggested me to have baby aspirin (81mg) daily to prevent any heart related problem in future. He told me that he is also taking it even he has not any diabetes/heart problem.

Is it OK to start aspirin 81 mg at this age (32)? I read somewhere, if we stop to take it after starting, it can give wrong result.

My husband takes a baby asprin every night before bed. I did it for awhile but I stopped. I think it may help men more tha women.

I've been taking a baby aspirin in the AM for the last 30 years. I'm still here. Studies do show that it seems to benefit men over women.

The aspirin ER is given as an anti-coagulant & will help.

I was advised to take baby aspirin everyday by my doctor. I've been doing so for the last two months. An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure as they say.

Thanks. What should be best time to take baby asprin? Some says it is at bed time and some says with morning meal consider that we are taking it for prevention. Currently not having any heart issue.

is it significant difference between 75MG and 81 MG aspirin? My doc (in USA ) suggested 81 MG but in India, 75 MG is available.

I wasn't given any specifics. I take a baby aspirin the first thing in the morning.
I am not having any heart issues; however, I was advised to start taking aspirin. I take the Bayer 81 milligrams.

I take 81mg at bedtime. 75mg is a very similar dose and should have the same preventative effects.

I take that and fish oil for heart-health. As a formerly-obese "bad" dieter (I used to eat a LOT of refined carbs... I had no idea the problems with white flour, etc.), even as a former athlete it's very likely I have some build-up in my coronary arteries, and with my family history of heart problems, it was actually MY idea to start taking it - I told my doctor and they were in agreement.

I personally believe based on current research it might be best to take it in the evening. Multiple studies now have confirmed that taking aspirin at night, but not in the morning, shows a slight improvement in ambulatory blood pressure. So if blood pressure is a concern at all, take it at night.

As with ANY medication, there is a potential for severe adverse reaction. If you are not otherwise allergic or have adverse reaction to aspirin, AND it was recommended, try it. I've been taking 81 mg at bed time for a few years. I haven't noticed any problems.

I was taking it, stopped when I saw omega-3's do about the same thing ... went off my STATINS, and resumed the baby aspirin then, because I read another article that baby aspirin has the same anti-inflammatory effect as a statin ... whole lotta manure floating around the internet, but hey, which industry do you want to support ... ?

I will stick with aspirin.
