Do you take baby aspirin daily?

There are several reasons that people are told to take baby aspirin every day, do you take it?  Why?

No, I do not. I have multi organ autoimmune autonomic small fiber neuropathy for which I get IVIG treatments each week, stage IV chronic kidney disease and a pacemaker for bradycardia. My neurologist and nephrologist and cardiologist don’t want me taking more meds than I have to.

I have afib and should be on a blood thinner. However I also have leukemia and after undergoing chemotherapy I am chemo pills which is counterindicated with blood thinners (apparently they increase the possibility of internal bleeding that can not be stopped) so I take the baby aspirin which is not as effective as actual blood thinners but doesn't have the risk.

No, because that's for suckers.  Instead, I take half of an adult aspirin every day because it's cheaper.

No. Ended up with bleeding on the brain because grams was too severe;  I actually had a mild stroke.  Once that was discovered was told not to use any aspirin; that was 5 years ago.

I take a full-sized aspirin (325mg) at bedtime. Been doing that for many years with no adverse gastric effects.

For more than 30 years I have taken a 325 grain aspirin each morning with no gastric or other ill effects.  I have recently stopped taking aspirin in order to have a dental procedure and am unsure whether I should resume aspirin at all or at 83 grain rather than 325.  I have had a TAVR aortic valve replacement.

I take my full-sized aspirin (325 mg) in the morning at the start of my day. Also have been doing that for many years with no adverse gastric effects. I can tell when I do not take it or take it later in the day.

I take 1 325mg Asprin at bed time for my arthritis. I am 70 and havedonethis forabout 5 years now.It helps mesleep better,notwkinginpain all night long.  It seems to work for about 6 hours.  I do not take Ibuprofin or tylenol at all.  I have no heart problems but do have mild cholesterol issues at about 230. My good cholesterol is really  high and I do not take statins.  They caused me alotof pain and stopping them did not change my 240 levelsat all.

My orthopedic surgeon who treated the Diamond Backs, the Cardinals, and the Suns told me never to put cortisone in your knees, only Supartz Injections!
