High & Low Blood Pressure board

One report I read claimed Aspirin and Morphine are the two most important drugs ever discovered. Aspirin is considered a super drug and numerous reports I have read recommend taking a small dose every day to keep strokes and heart problems at bay. By no means is it a panacea for an unhealthy life style though, it should never be consdered so.

From a personal point of view, I have taken Aspirin regularly but I found it gave my stomach ulcer-type symptoms. It irritated my stomach, so I stopped taking it. Be careful of this, you could always take enteric coated Aspirin to avoid this, so its released in your small intestine, although some research gives evidence that these tablets aren't as bio-available as standard aspirin and would have a reduced effect.
