Why Should not We Take Aspirin Daily?

We might familiar with Over the Counter (OTC) drug called “aspirin,” since its commonly used for:

- reduce fever
- relieve pain.

Aspirin may relieve from light to medium pains such as:

- common cold
- headaches
- muscle aches
- toothaches
- arthritis

Another use of Aspirin is to prevent blood clot in the artery. The clot obstructs the flow of blood which may cause:

- heart attacks
- strokes (due to disturbance of blood flow in the brain)

The facts, based on reported from Annals of Internal Medicine (2019) that million of people take Aspirin even they don’t have heart diseases.

Based on age, number of people who consume Aspirin daily are:

- 40 years old, 29 millions
- 70 years old, 10 millions

The main reason not to take Aspirin daily is:

- increasing risk of bleeding, especially to people above 70.

For people any ages, should not take Aspirin daily if they have certain diseases or disorders. Some of them:

- peptic ulcer disease.
- low blood platelet count
- bleeding disorder
- chronic kidney disease
- diabetes
- high blood pressure.

Hence, it will be better to consult to physicians, even if we want to take very lower doses of Aspirin daily.
