I have a slight cough from taking the uncoated aspirin, so I use the
enteric. There is less absorbtion from the enteric, but you body still
gets enough. IIRC, 50 mg uncoated is sufficient to get the benefit.

What does buffered mean ? Is the Bayer's Asprin available
on OTC buffered ?

It generally says it on the box...

Take with food, you should be ok.

There is also "enteric coated" available.
Again, it says it on the box.

Thanks I bought it today at the farm fresh drug store .

Cheers!

I have found enteric coated to be quite effective in prevention of
stomach problems. It is worth mentioning that I have known one
extremely sensitive individual (a woman) who still experienced
stomach pain on low dose enteric. My theory is that the aspirin
affected her stomach lining via the blood stream rather than
directly.

Doesn't it cause gastric distress ?

Not if it's buffered and taken with food.
It's only ONE PER DAY, not a normal dose for pain of 2 every 6 to 8
hours!

that new platelets are formed continuously and that those new platelets need

You are correct!
That is why, when you donate blood, they ask you if you have taken
asprin within 3 days before donating. Platelets have a very short life
in the bloodstream and if you have taken asprin, they blood bank knows
they cannot separate and use your platelets.

Sure.


Indeed "sure." But most of the studies have been done at doses of 1
full aspirin a day, so if you want to duplicate them, you need that.
And some fraction of (40%?) people are aspirin-resistant. That fraction
drops, the more aspirin you take in a single dose. 2 tablets might be
even better than one. But whatever you take, do it on a full stomach.
Also, effects on platelets last 2 days at least, so you can do it every
other day (or Mon-Wed-Fri if that helps you remember). The longer
between doses, the longer your stomach has to recover.

Lab tests for aspirin insensitivity are not yet common or cheap.
Eventually, we'll all know how much aspirin it takes for us. Right now,
we don't.

You can do a simple Simplate bleeding time...
It tests platelet function.

Asprin makes platelets less "sticky" so is supposed to help prevent
blood clots. IMHO a baby asprin is not strong enough.

I think there has been some research to back that opinion too, but I'm
to busy right now to google for that. ;-)

One full size aspirin is unlikely to cause gastric upset unless one has
had such problems before. Take it with a meal. If there is gastric upset
then stop. The clotting effect has been shown. Some people take several
grams each day for various sources of pain and swelling and that is really
when problems are more likely to occur.
