Do you take a daily low dose of aspirin? Studies have shown that taking 300 milligrams or less of aspirin can increase your risk of major brain or gastrointestinal bleeding by as much as 55 percent! For doctors, it comes down to a question: do the benefits outweigh the risks for this specific patient? For some who suffer from heart attacks or strokes, the daily dosage can save them from another attack; the benefits outweigh the risks. However, for those who haven’t had any sign of heart disease, the risk of bleeding is higher than the benefits and can cause major internal issues.
Talk to your doctor before taking daily dosages of aspirin. You could be one where the risks outweigh the benefits and you could be putting yourself in danger!
