I presently take two daily. I used to take one then my physician increased the amount to two. I am 72 and have taken baby aspirin for likely 13 years. My dad died from congestive heart failure at age 68 and maternal grandfather passed from a stroke in his 80's.

My Doctor put me on a whole 325 Mg Asprin after a suspecte stroke in 2009.  I haven't had any bleeding issues but I am concerned what to do in the future.  Any Ideas?

I stopped taking daily aspirin because of recent news about it on TV.  I have noticed that I don't bleed nearly as much when I cut myself shaving. If you have unexpected surgery, aspirin can cause serious bleeding problems.

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.
