Re: Do you take baby aspirin daily?

I take two every day to thin my blood to help prevent a third TI.  I had heart burn before the first TI and I stated taking baby aspirin.  I didn’t know how serious a problem heartburn really was if not treated properly.  I developed scare tissue in my throat and stomach.  I started meditation to correct the acid level but the damage was done.  I was concerned about taking aspirin with the scare tissue problem.  I have had no additional problems caused from taking baby aspirin.

Yes, had a heart attack August 18th this year. Have been told that I need to take that one for the rest of my life. 

I also take a few other pills which I am glad to stop after a year or so.
