Safety Alerts & Recalls
What does this mean?
Both aspirin and ticlopidine (TIclid) can cause bleeding problems. If you are taking aspirin together with another antiplatelet medication, such as ticlopidine (TIclid), you should talk to your doctor to make sure the benefits outweigh the risks of taking aspirin with this medication. If you are taking as much as 100 mg or more of aspirin daily as a preventive measure for heart attack or stroke, you should speak with your doctor about whether you can reduce your risk of bleeding and ulcer problems by using the lowest dose of aspirin possible.
Low-Dose Aspirin For Prevention Has Fewer Side Effects Than Higher Doses of Aspirin
A recent study in the Annals of Internal Medicine showed that low-dose aspirin (81 mg) is as effective as high-dose aspirin (100 mg or greater) in preventing heart attacks and strokes. Low-dose aspirin also has fewer ulcer and bleeding complications.
