question about low dose aspirin

If you take a excedrin (caffeine/aspirin) and are on a low dose aspirin regime from you dr. Do you take both or does the excedrin replace your low dose for the day? Or do I need to take both.

I often wake up with headaches and often take excedrin in the morning before work- do I need to take both?

Re: questin about low dose aspirin

The aspirin in the excedrin is enough, no need to take the other aspirin tablet as well.

Re: questin about low dose aspirin

i would actually switch to the version that has only tylenol and caffiene in it, just to be on the safe side. they DO have this availiable since i know i used this for many years for my headaches that just popped in from time to time. i simply cannot tolerate aspirin so i KNOW this version did not contain it and it worked really well. why go there if you don;t have to. i too am on one baby aspirin a day for aneurysm. love that enteric coated stuff. **
