Aspirin can be purchased without a prescription from a doctor, however it is still a drug that should be used with great respect and if used continuously over a period of time, consultation with a doctor first is paramount. Studies have shown that daily aspirin reduces a subset of the populationsí risk of sustaining a stroke or heart attack, by acting to reduce blood clots. This same property can have unwanted side effects including bleeds in the brain and stomach, and renal failure. Aspirin can also mix badly with other medication, and a physician will know which ones are most volatile. A doctor can also determine the correct dose for their patient, encouraging an effective and lifesaving method of using aspirin.
