Cardiprin 100 (Aspirin 100mg). Preventing strokes and heart attacks.
What causes strokes and heart attacks?
As we grow older, our arteries tend to narrow as fatty and fibre-like materials build up on the inner walls. If an artery gets sufficiently narrow, a blood clot may form and block the artery.
If this occurs in an artery supplying blood to the heart muscle, it will restrict the heart's supply of oxygen, causing angina (a crushing chest pain) or a heart attack.
If this occurs in an artery bringing blood to the brain, it can cause a TIA (Transient Ischaemic Attack) or a stroke.
How can Cardiprin 100 help?
Cardiprin 100 reduces the stickiness of platelets (the clot-forming part of blood), making them less likely to form a clot and helping to prevent blocking of blood vessels.
Each tablet contains 100mg of Aspirin, a low dose shown by medical studies to effectively lower the risk of stroke and heart attack in people who have blood vessel disorders, with a low risk of side effects.
Cardiprin 100 has also been specially formulated to dissolve on the tongue for rapid absorption. Some scientists believe that aspirin which is rapidly absorbed may be more effective in the prevention of strokes and heart attacks.
How often and for how long should I take Cardiprin 100?
Because your body makes new clot-forming platelets every day, you must remember to take Cardiprin 100 on a daily basis. Cardiprin 100's calendar pack is designed to help you remember your daily dose.
Simply disperse the tablet on your tongue without water. It is pleasant-tasting and easily swallowed. Or, if you prefer, you can swallow your Cardiprin 100 tablet whole with some water.
Your doctor will advise you on how long you should continue to take Cardiprin 100. Make sure you see your doctor at regular intervals and discuss any questions that you may have with him or her. Cardiprin 100 should only be taken under medical supervision.
