It takes longer for the enteric coated aspirin to take effect since it takes
longer for it to dissolve. That is a good reason not to buy it.

Also I take aspirin and I have no problems with my stomach tolerating it so
I don't want enteric coated aspirin.

Buffered aspirin is nothing more than a little maalox with aspirin. You can
buffer it with a tums or rolaids or food for all that matters.

Hi again everyone,

Since I didn't get any "directly related" answers to my questions on my
last post, let's try this shorter post.

In my last post I mentioned aspirin, and buffered aspirin, and ibuprofen.
But I failed to address the so called safety coated (i.e.., enteric
coated) aspirins (e.g.., ecotrin and their generic equivalents). As an
aside, I'll never understand why people pay for brand name OTC drugs or
prescription drugs in lieu of generic.

Anyway here is the question - why doesn't everyone buy safety (or enteric)
coated aspirin instead of regular or buffered aspirin, since it is
designed to dissolve in the small intestine instead of the stomach, and
therefore protect the stomach from the "direct contact" caustic effect.
There will still be the prostaglandin blocking damage to the stomach
mucosa prostaglandins once any of the aspirins (or ibuprofen or naprosyn)
get into the blood stream.

Okay, the question is why doesn't everyone but safety coated aspirin. I
understand there may be a chance of the enteric coated stuff going right
on through, but the company that makes ecotrin (Glaxo) certainly doesn't
advertise that.
