Talk with Your Doctor about Taking Aspirin Every Day 


Take Action!

Find out if daily aspirin is right for you.

Talk with your doctor.
Your doctor can help you decide if aspirin is the right choice for you. Talk with your doctor about:

  • Your risk of heart attack or stroke
  • 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 you take, including vitamins and medicines you get without a prescription. Aspirin can cause serious side effects and mix dangerously with other medicines.

What about cost?
For some men and women, aspirin use is covered under the Affordable Care Act, the health care reform law passed in 2010. Check with your insurance provider to find out what’s included in your plan.
