Is it safe to mix oxycodone and aspirin?
First of all I would like to say that there isn't any need for negative comments, I have a prescription for the oxycodone. I have a lot of back problems and this morning it was just killing me and I had forgotten my prescription so I took an aspirin. I'm very uneasy about mixing anything. It was around 12 or so in the afternoon when I took just one aspirin and it is now nearly 9pm so I was wondering, would it be safe to take the oxycodone now or should I wait for a longer period of time?
Emme Cooper
  It should be fairly safe to do so. Aspirin isn't prescription where all the big problems come in, that you have two different things working on the same problem and you can get too much of them in your system. If you are interested in pain free living I have the techniques to pass along to you that can bring you out of that pain world. It did me after 40 years of it. If interested, let me know and they will be yours.

  Emme, why not just have the doctor prescribe Percodan rather than Percocet? Percodna such as Watson 3551 has the opiaoid combined with the aspirin already.
Is it bad to mix aspirin with oxycodone?
My aspirin is from wall greens and I don't know who its made by (just more proof of my bad at medicine and finding information on bottles-ness) and I want to also take some oxycodone. I usualy take about 7 pills of it (I know thats bad please don't judge me by that) and I also want to take some aspirin. I was wondering if this could be dangerous or harmful in anyway. Thankyou!!
  You can take oxycodone with aspirin. Oxycodone is synthetic morphine and acetaminophen. I just wonder why you would want to take aspirin with Oxy's unless you are trying to get rid of some inflammation. I take 10/325 oxycodone and BC powders everyday.
Oxycodone script refill?
I just got back from a major surgery on my arm a couple of weeks ago and was prescribed Oxycodone, they normally said they wouldn't put me on any kind of painkillers but I can't use any kind of aspirin or Ibuprofen because of the antiplatellet effect and I could bleed a lot easier.

Well now that is over and my counts are back to normal and I only had one refill for the oxycodone. The thing is neither aspirin nor the ibuprofen helps the pain that I still have. What are the chances I could get them to allow me to get another oxy script?

I really am tired of feeling like shit..

  If the surgeon/physician has "released" you from his/her care, he/she will not refill your prescription. Or at least should not, according to federal law. Doing so will risk his/her license. If you had a followup visit and the doctor didn't schedule another one, you have probably been released.

You don't mention what type of major surgery you had on your arm, or what the surgery was for. Sometimes arm surgery can result in loss of range of motion, stiffness, and pain. And sometimes a Physical Therapist can help you with an exercise program to strengthen the arm, increase the range of motion, and even decrease the discomfort of shortened ligaments and tendons.

You should contact your physician's office to find out if you've been released. If not, you may appropriately ask for another prescription, perhaps in the smallest amount (i.e., 2.5 mg). You may also want to ask about a referral to Physical Therapy.

If you've been released, you may want to ask for another appointment and tell them you're having a lot of discomfort. Not every major surgery goes perfectly well, and there may be complications with yours. Ask the doctor how long you should expect to have this discomfort.

Many people have major surgery and end up dependent on oxycodone. My own brother was one of them. As another poster suggested, be careful with this situation!
What is the difference between Percocet and oxycodone?
I suffer from chronic back pain and it has been suggested to me to switch from the Percocet to the Oxycodone so I can minimize the amount of aspirin/acetaminophen my liver is exposed to

  oxycodone has no acetaminophen in it like percocet, it is just the narcotic. percocet is the brand name for a pill that contains oxycodone and it does have acetaminophen. an example would be 5/500 the five being the mg's of oxy and the 500 being the amount of acetaminophen. there is oxycontin which is just oxycodone. the contin part of the word just means continuous release and does not contain any other medication. many medications for pain have part narcotic and part acetaminophen like fioricet which is part butalbital and part aceta. fioricet is the brand name for butalbital. percocet has many siblings the exact same medication by a differant name because it is made by a different pharmaceutical company. try they have all the info you need. gd lk
Oxycodone and itching?
I have taken oxycodone for about 5 years for breakthrough severe Restless Legs Syndrome in both my legs and arms. While the dose is moderate (usually less that 20mg of an evening) for treatment of RLS and it has never been an abuse issue for me, suddenly, I have developed head to toe itching. I use straight oxycodone without any aspirin or acetomenaphen, There is no rash, but I itch in some pretty personal areas. Benadryl will exacerbate the RLS. Any suggestions as to what and when to take it
It is straight Oxycodone not Oxycontin. I got 5mg tabs so I could easily take only what I need to control the symptoms. Oxycontin did not work that well and make me dopey. I am surprise about the fuss with Oxycodone. I have never gotten any high from it - just might get a bit sleepy. I avoid the benzodiazopine as they make me dopey and may exacerbate the RLS. Had it since I was a kid. I am a 56 year old retired RN (ER and Infection Control) and it is getting worse every year.

  Oxycontin comes in 20 mg., I'm not sure about Oxycodone, thought it was categorized as 325 mg. Acetaminophen with 5 mg. Oxy, or just 5 mg. Oh well, keep up the Benadryl. Also, I don't understand your itching, I have only seen it after Epidurals and Morphine. I don't think you need any Oxy drug at all. You should take the Beta Blocker Propranolol 20 mg. for the restless leg syndrome. Valium or Diazepam works too, and doctors may not know that, I do.

How much Oxycodone is in 30MG Oxycontin?
I know that part of the Oxycontin pills contain stuff like Tylenol or Aspirin or something like that. Does anyone know the exact amount? Thanks!
Another Question: If the 30MG relates to the Oxycodone, then is there anything else in the pill?
  It is true that Percocet typically contains anywhere between 325 and 750mg of Aspirin in it, but nothing that exceeds 10mg of oxycodone in it will EVER have Aspirin or Acetaminophen (APAP) in it.

Oxycontin (which ranges from 10mg to 160mg of oxy.)actually does not contain any Tylenol or Acetaminophen. Oxycontin stands for oxycodone continuous release, which is a time release that only contain bindings (for time release) and dyes (for the coating around it) and releases oxycodone gradually over a 12 hour period.

As far as 30mg. oxycodone, that is an the highest immediate release form of oxycodone available and contains pure oxycodone with no bindings and definitely no Tylenol or Aspirin.

I'm sure you know that oxycodone containing pills are the most addicting pills on the market and if not used properly and/or are mixed with the wrong meds (respiratory depressors mostly) you can literally stop breathing. In FL oxycodone claims an average of 7 lives a day via overdoing, so be careful and best of luck to you.

OxyCodone vs OxyContin?
I've been prescribed OxyCodone with APAP for a back injury. A friend of mine offered me an oxycontin. He said it was the same thing just without the aspirin/acetaminophen added in. I'm looking at this from a legal standpoint. If I were to be drug tested would it show up differently or as the same thing? And please no "you shouldn't mess with such and such", I just want an answer to my question. Thanks for any help.
How much Aspirin do I need to take to get the same effect of Oxycodone?
A low dose pill containing Oxycodone every night was the only thing that got me to sleep. Now I am forced to pick things over-the-counter because my doctor won't give more and I am suffering (not addicted). I got a big bottle of Aspirin... I hope that it is better than Acetaminophen & Ibruprofen. What is your take? What is the most effective out of the 3? So how many should I take, or maybe I should take one of each? Somebody who knows this stuff help me...
what part of "that was the only thing that got me to sleep" didn't you understand? I don't appreciate responses from people who don't read my post. Just make me suffer more.
it is not nessessarily pain the way most people would think it, it is more of a slow torture of insomnia and sleep deprivation that has grown to be a real live pain for me. i am always dizzy, lightheaded and wobbly with a complete lack of enery every minute i am awake. i can not sleep no matter how exhausted i am, i am extremely anxious and irritated. i havent been able to hold a job or do any normal activities in years and this has taken the best years of my life away from me. every day i need at least 12 hours i sleep in order to get up and feel somewhat normal and be able to resume normal activities like hanging up posters in my room, brushing my teeth, etc. I feel am young man and slim but I feel like an obese 70 year old man. my doctor doesn't understand or listen. the only thing that ever worked for me and soothed all my ailments and gave me my life back was oxycodone.
To the spinal surgeon- I only got a bottle of 15 endocets (5 oxycodone and 325 acetaminophen) to originally relieve a stomach pain. then i found it worked for sleep so i only took 1 occasionally over a period of like 9 months. i used em sparingly becuz i thought i might not get more. but wud have liked to use every 2nd day or so. so how could u say my doctor did a good thing but not giving me more?

  Ok, let's leave addiction out of the equation. I don't point fingers. What about dependence? Which can be just as bad if not worse than addiction. The main use for Oxycontin is not to help you sleep. It is generally used for mild to severe pain and if it helps you sleep in the process, then that's a plus. Yes not being able to sleep can cause you to have "pain symptoms". Your body is not getting a chance to so called "repair" itself if you are not getting the proper rest. There are several good medications that you could discuss with your Dr. about taking. I am not qualified to mention them,but I am speaking from experience. You do not want to become dependent on narcotics. Then you really won't be able to sleep. Also, one day you may truly need them for the main reason they are prescribed. By then you may have built up a tolerance and then of need a different (possibly higher) type of pain med or maybe none will work for you anymore. It's a vicious cycle and also one I wish I had never had the misfortune of experiencing. Because just when I finally got off of all narcotics, I noticed some of the pain med was actully causing pain. So I was feeling better than I had felt in years. Now, my luck of course... I have been diagnosed with complex regional pain syndrome,(from a recent wrist surgery that was repairing the original wrist surgery) CRPS is one of the most painful things I have ever experienced. However, my tolerance for any medication that could help(until the Dr.'s are done using me as an experimental lab rat because narcotics are generally not a fix for this...torture) is completly ruined. Pain med's may as well be candy as far as my body is concerned. Please trust me, you don't want to live like that. Try talking to your PCP first and see if they have any other suggestions. They may also apperciate the fact that you are trying to avoid narcotics on your own. P.S. By the ay, I can't work either and my walls seem to get in my way too.
I woke up this morning with a bruised eyelid.?
I just started taking toviaz - could this be a reaction to the new medication? I am on a daily low-dose aspirin regimen and I also take aspirin for aches & pains. Last night I awoke with a headache (around 3 a.m.) and took 3 aspirin. When I woke up at 8 a.m. I had the bruise. Could the aspirin be responsible?
What is the best pain med for a shoulder ache?
I was climbing a rope yesterday and i swung around and twisted my shoulder. It hurts really bad. What should i take out of these? Advil, Tylenol, Aspirin, Naproxen, or Oxycodone?

  a cold pac, especially the gel type is the best pn relief, then gentle ranging of the shoulder;; then pn relief, tylenol is the safest;; next time you injure yourself;; move the part, cold pac for 15-20 minutes, move the part again & use the cold pac when agitated again.. if the pain lasts for more than 3 days without relief, see a doc;; if it returns with the same intensity even days later, see the doc;; lots of things in the shoulder, it's a VERY vulnerable joint... Good Luck!!
what's the difference between oxycodone hydrochloride and oxycodone with acetaminophen?
And what does acetaminophen do when mixed with oxycodone or hydrocodone?
  Oxycodone hydrochloride - The narcotic pain reliever is mixed with aspirin

Oxycodone Acetaminophen - The narcotic pain reliever is mixed with Acetaminophen
Acetaminophen relieves pain by elevating the threshold to sensing pain. It reduces fever through its action on the heat-regulating center of the brain. The combination of oxycodone and acetaminophen or hydrocodone acetaminophen achieves greater pain relief than either taken separately
Oxycodone and being healthy?
I take Oxycodone everyday for pain management -30mg IR, 3 times daily. I have taken this medication for 3 years now but I am curious as to whether or not I should take any type of supplements or vitamins to maintain a healthy balance in my body. I am a 31 year old male and I suffer from chronic back pain as a result of degenerative disk disease. I do not use acetaminophen, ibuprofen or aspirin products. I do not drink alcohol and do not use any other narcotics or street drugs to include marijuana. I have a good relationship with my doctor and have talked with him before about this issue, but I would like the input of another person who also takes this medication. Take you for your response(s).
I have tried the injections but I didn't respond to them too well. I know that they do help but I like to know that I can get relief right away when it's needed. I would like to find an alternate for managing the pain.
  Have you looked at other pain releiving methods? I am not trying to downplay your pain but have you tried cortizone shots? I had very intense back pain due to DDD and herniated disks and the corizone shots worked great. The first few didn't work but the last one did. As for the question...not sure what the answer is for that.
Why do some people take Tylenol instead of aspirin?
I rarely taken meds like aspirin or tylenol, but I've been curious why people take Tylenol over aspirin sometimes? Is aspirin harmful, or is it just not as strong as tylenol for headaches and minor pains? What's the reasoning behind why people do or do not choose aspirin for minor pain relief?
  Aspirin is more likely to make you bleed because it thins the blood. People on prescription blood thinners or those who are prone to bleeding ulcers ( or bleeding anywhere in their body) should not take aspirin. Tylenol is safer for this reason although in large doses over a long period of time Tylenol can damage the liver. Also, unless okayed by a physician, aspirin and aspirin-containing products should not be given to children because of a serious, avoidable, rare condition it can cause called Reye's Syndrome.
What is the difference between oxycontin and oxycodone?
My mom is going thru cancer and has been on percocet (oxycodone + acetaminophen) for a year and recently her oncologist put her on oxycontin every 12 hours and percocet for breakthrough pain as needed. Is oxycontin just a long term or delayed release form of oxycodone or something different entirely? We just want to understand what she's on.
  Percocet is a mixture of oxycodone and APAP (acetaminophen) like you said. Oxycotin is pure oxycodone with a time release effect. Oxycotin comes in much higher doses of oxycodone than percocet.

What should I do if I took aspirin after possible concussion?
Slipped earlier going down the stairs at home fell on my but hard whipped my head back but did not hit it on anything. Have a pretty good headache so I took 2 aspirin.

Later read about concussions to see if I might possibly have one and have read DO NOT take aspirin after concussion. If I do have one what should I do if I took aspirin? My only symptom is a headache, nothing else.
  Chances are, you don't have a concussion. I've slipped on ice before, and I smashed my head against the it, and for a moment, I actually saw black. I laughed it off and was all fine. I just got an extreme headache, but it felt obvious I didn't have one because it went away after about an hour. (I was at school, so aspirin wasn't an option)
Is it persisting? If you have it for a couple hours, maybe you should go to the hospital, just to be safe?
You never know. Should be careful.
Hope it helps! :)
because i am a 39 yrs old smoker male i decided to take 81 mg aspirin daily to reduce heart attack risk(i know quitting smoking would be much better of),i also have moderate hemoroid problem that bleeds once in a while if idont be careful with my diet,but after 10 days of low doze of aspirin treatment i noticed the bleeding got worsen,more often,more blood ,i stopped taking aspirin,is these 2 things be related or was it a coinsidence(i am asking this question here because i cant afford to go to a doctor,so exclude those answers please)
  Aspirin has been known to be a moderate blood thinner, with reduced clotting ability, so it is possible for the hemmoroid bleeding to increase somewhat. I suggest you keep up the aspirin regimen, but also consider taking a daily dose of a fiber supplement, such as Metamucil or Citrucel to aid in easier bowel movements.
What kind of painkillers can one take if on an aspirin regime?
If a person is on a low-dose aspirin regime, what type of painkiller can be taken for everyday pain like a headache or a backache? I know you shouldn't take a couple of about tylenol?
How many mg of oxycodone is in 10mL of Roxicet?
The bottle says 5/325 (or maybe its 325/5, I can't remember off the top of my head). How many mg of oxycodone are in that?
  The 5/325 means 5mg of Oxycodone and 325 mg of Tylenol. I dont know about the whole Roxicet thing.

How many promethazine should I take with one oxycodone?
I just got my wisdom teeth pulled out and my docter perscribed me oxycodone to relieve the pain and promethazine to relieve any sickness I would feel from the pain reliver. I am scared to take the the oxycodone cause im scared of being nauses!
Caleb Mcneal
  Oxycodone for a pulled wisdom tooth? I hope you don't get addicted to it. If a doctor prescribed the medicines for you, then the prescribed directions for both drugs should be listed on the bottles.
What is the difference between oxycodone and oxycodone hydrochloride?
And also could you tell me if hydrocodone is the same as a percocet or what?
  The difference between the two is basically in the chemical structure. For all intents and purposes, they are the same. Another version is Oxycodone terephthalate.

As for hydrocodone, it is NOT the same as percocet. Percocet is a compound of oxycodone and acetaminophen. Dosages can vary; the standard is 5mg oxycodone and 500mg acetaminophen. Hydrocodone is found in Vicodin and Lortab, and many other generic versions. It is a weaker painkiller than oxycodone, and the chemical synthesis process is different.

I see you are asking questions about opiods, just curious, why?

oxycodone hydrochloride?
my friend would like to know how many mg of oxycodone hydrochlordie will get him high. not sure if its extended release or instant. he has two 30mg and wants to know if he should take one or two. the pill has a v on it and says 48|12 its a little blue pill. the pill identifier at said its oxycodone hydrochloride but not if its extended or instant relase. will this make a difference?
and does anyone know if its IR or ER. by any chance
  i would take a 30 mg tab & cut it in half. Take that. That should be plenty enough to get him high if he dont have a tolerance level. Do not take both 30 mg tablets together he could get really sick. Do not crush them & snort them either. If u have any questions message me thanks.
I am here to help
Does Pepcid have aspirin or aspirin like products in it?
I cant take aspirin before surgery, and my stomach is amazingly sensitive. I need pepto, but can't take it, so pepcid is my next best bet.
How much aspirin after a heart attack?
My fiance had a heart attack about 6 months ago. He had a blocked artery and the surgeon put in a stent. All's well now, and he's taking a few medications including Plavix, Simvastatin, Pacerone, and aspirin. My concern is the amount of aspirin he's taking. The doctor originally put him on 325 mg of aspirin, but I think it's too much. He tends to bleed more than usual, even if he just nicks himself shaving. He also says he has trouble staying warm.

His next doctor's appointment is next month, so I thought I'd just ask someone here who may have similar heart conditions/medications if they think 325 mg of aspirin is too much to be taking 6 months after a heart attack.
  The usual recommendations for aspirin dosing after stent placement is 162-325 mg for either 1 month (bare metal stent), 3 months (sirolimus-eluting stent), or 6 months (paclitaxel-eluting stent). After that, the recommended dose is 75-162 mg daily.

Now these recommendations are from the AHA, but many cardiologists adapt practice based on specific characteristics of patients. At my institution, the cardiologists like to place patients on 81 mg aspirin even within the first month of stent placement.

Your fiance can most likely drop to the lower dose of aspirin (discuss with the cardiologist first, of course....), but in reality the clopidogrel is likely having a larger impact on bleeding than the aspirin (clopidogrel is an absolute must after stent placement, however, so he'll just have to be more careful shaving).

Just took aspirin when can I take theraflu?
I am feeling ill and thought that perhaps an aspirin would do (325mg) Well it didn't. I took the aspirin about an hour ago. How long do I have to wait until I take theraflu? acetaminophen 650 mg, diphenhydramine hydrochloride 25 mg, phenylephrine hydrochloride 10 mg
Jennifer Thorson
  you can take the theraflu now.
Fentanyl (Duragesic) 100mcg patch is = how many mg of oxycodone?
I tried to use the narcotic converter but got messed up results. I was recently prescribed Fentanyl 100 mcg duagesic patches from my doctor for cancer. He had me on 15 mg of oxycodone 6 times a day. I told a friend recently about this patch he prescribed me and my friend said woah wtf? Thats a huge jump from what you were taking and the strongest drug in the world.

So my question is:

One is this the strongest drug in the world and as dangerous as everyone says even when taken as prescribed and with 2 yrs opiate resistance.

And my other question is, roughly if you compared this drug to the oxycodone i was taking. how many mg of oxycodone is this thing equivalent to, per hour? I haven't taken it yet I wanted to do my Homework first.
  First of all, Fentanyl is NOT the strongest pain killer in the world. Not by a long shot. While it is very powerful, your not in any serious danger as long as you take it as prescribed. The fentanyl patch delivers 100 MICROgrams every hour. The LD50 (lethal dose of 50% of experimental subjects) in rats is about 3 MILLIgrams per kilogram from sources in my medical books. The patches deliver the drug very slowly. 100 mcg of Fentanyl is approximately equivalent to about 8-10 mg of Morphine which is equivalent to about which is equivalent to somewhere between 4-8 mg Oxycodone an hour. The only real worry is post-use withdrawal. Fentanyl is EXTREMELY commonly used in cancer pain treatment and many times is prescribed with an oral opioid such as oxycodone for breakthrough pain. Don't fear using the fentanyl patch, it's very effective and when used as prescribed it is very safe. Just be careful to fold the sticky sides together when you are done with your patch as there is still active drug in the patch even after 24 hours of use. I wish you the best in your battle with cancer.
Aspirin and aluminium and magnesium hydroxide?
I am from Italy but I am in London at the moment. I was told that in England aspirins tablets are similar to the Italian ones but with two additional important "ingredients" which are aluminium and magnesium hydroxide to protect the stomach. Is that true? and if so, could somebody suggest me a good "aspirin brand" or are all the same? I bought the Aspirin Tablet B.P. 300 mg but the components are not written, except for a sentence which says that "contains the active ingredients aspirin of 300mg plus lactose, starch and talc" but no Reference to aluminium and magnesium...
thanks for your help.
What is the best way to get high on Oxycodone acetaminophen percocets?
i have 4 of them so that makes 20 mg of oxycodone.
ive always just railed them but i was just wondering if theres a better method to get high off ov them.
Riley Wilson
  5 mg of oxycodone is not enough for you to feel it. The best method would be to crush the pill and either put it in a gel cap or parachute it (put crushed powder in a small bit of tissue paper and swallow with water) and I didnt really see addiction I was doing over 250mg of oxy a week for 2 months and have been off that for a LONG time with no withdraw effects.
Is it bad to take Dimetapp while on oxycodone?
I was given oxycodone about 3 hours ago for post-operative pain and I've also got a bad cough. Would it be a terribly bad idea to take Dimetapp now? I'm also going to be taking Tramadol later tonight, will it react badly with that?
  do NOT take tramadol with any other opiate or opioid. tramadol itself is a heavy duty opioid, and oxycodone is an opiate. both will depress the cardiac system, and tramadol alone is enough to slow breathing to the point you shouldnt take any other downers. I code blue'd in the hospital on a dose of morphine they gave me that wad too heavy. add on tramadol and i probably would have been dead. as far as oxycodone and dimetapp, if you follow dosing guidelines it should be ok. the thing about opiates like oxycodone is that people in a lot of pain can take doses that would kill a healthy person. if the doctor prescribed you the tramadol and knew you were on oxycodone i suppose it would be ok, if following dosing instructions, but with my personal experience with opiates and opioids, in the hospital and out, legitimate or not, i personally would not take tramadol with oxycodone. opioids and opiates often clash in the body, so just exercise caution. all i can do is attempt to instill knowledge that will help you better judge whether or not to do it. and good luck whatever your choice =)
How early or at what age is it ok to start taking aspirin in small doses to prevent heart disease?

My father has had two quadruple bypasses and two heart attacks so I know a little bit about heart conditions. I am 24 right now and I want to reduce the chances of ever getting coronary heart disease. I know that low doses of aspirin around 75-81mg are prescribed to people with heart conditions to "thin" the blood and today I read an article about how not enough people take aspirin as a precaution against heart attacks. I also know that aspirin even in mild doses can cause ulcers, especially if you drink, which I do quite frequently. I wanted to know if now is a good time to start taking aspirin because even though i exercise and eat healthy and do some cardio, I also smoke, and I probably am genetically more likely to develop heart disease....Does anyone know the answer to this? Also would aspirin make me more prone to getting dizzy and unable to perform more strenuous activity because it 'thins' my blood? Thanks a lot for reading this.

Low-dose aspirin can be started anytime, since 81mg aspirin tablets have only one side effect. We'll get to that in a moment.

You'd be much better off changing your diet and lifestyle now.

1. Stop smoking now. Never, ever restart. It killed my dad, and he's not alone in that.

2. Stop drinking now. You can drink a little now and then, but don't drink "frequently" any more.

3.Now, about your diet: the three diets (these are not diets to lose weight but diets to live on for your whole life) that have shown the most promise are the Ornish Diet (very low fat), the Mediterranean Diet (controlled fat, most of which is plant monounsaturated and fish), and the Portfolio Diet from the University of Toronto (includes "plant sterols" or oils from canola, olive, and almond), which are very good at preventing heart disease.

Go on a diet like this, do it now, and do not cheat.

Now, while you probably don't need to go on aspirin for another six to eleven years (your choice), you could go on it anytime.

You will not be dizzy from aspirin. In fact, you will not be able to tell that you take it. I run 20-30 miles a week and I take it. Have done for years.

If you do, however, there is one event you will need to watch out for--cataracts. You most likely will not get them if you wear good UV-blocking sunglasses, but you must wear them. There is an elevation in the rate of cataract formation in people taking aspirin therapy than in those who do not.

Cataracts are enclouding formations in the lens of the eye, making your vision in that eye cloudy. It forms very slowly, over years, but you can watch your vision cloud a little more each year when you get them. The treatment for this is easy, quick, and simple, but it is surgery, and you will need glasses afterward.

So, go ahead and take aspirin whenever you wish, but when you do, wear good sunglasses every time you go outside on even a halfway sunny day.
  I don't know about all who have it what age is okay, but my son has had another heart surgery at age 18 and this is the first time he was told to begin daily asperin dosages.
What would happen if someone were to take a 325mg Aspirin tablet every day?
I've heard that taking a daily Aspirin has certain health benefits (for heart disease and whatnot). But is the 325mg dosage way too high?
I ask because I recently bought a bottle of 325mg Aspirin that was on sale for a good price. Should I instead split a pill in half and take the half?
  80mg is the daily dose size. Taking 325mg will most likely result in a stomach ulcer after awhile.
