Not any more.  As I approached age 70, my doctor expressed doubt of any benefits given my overall good health.  So I stopped.

Yes.  After a heart valve replacement too plavix for 4 months plus a low dose aspirin.  After 4 months the plavix was discontinued but advised to remain on low dose aspirin.

I have been taking a baby aspirin at night with my asthma and statin medications for a few years now.  I occasionaly have PVCs and some family members had heart problems. I decided a daily baby aspirin was a good idea for me.

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.
