About Aspirin

Manufacturer: Bayer Vital GmbH – Active ingredient: acetylsalicylic acid

Dosage form: tablet

Aspirin contains the active substance acetylsalicylic acid.

Acetylsalicylic acid (ASA) is primarily used to treat mild to moderate pain such as headache, toothache or menstrual pain. But even with greater pain in the context of a migraine, the acetylsalicylic acid is effective.

Acetylsalicylic acid has the ability to prevent platelets from clumping and thus prevent blood clots (thrombosis). That’s why the drug is colloquially referred to as a blood thinner.

In addition, acetylsalicylic acid has an antipyretic effect, which can be used in the treatment of influenza (real flu) or in a cold. Rarely, acetylsalicylic acid is also used in rheumatic diseases.

For pain therapy and to reduce fever, doses of 500 to 1000 milligrams of acetylsalicylic acid per day are usually used. A daily maximum dose of 3 grams should not be exceeded.

If acetylsalicylic acid is used to prevent blood clots, ie in its capacity as an antiplatelet agent, it is used in low doses of 100 to 300 milligrams per day. The drug is given especially in heart attack and stroke or its harbingers (short brain function disorders) to prevent recurrence. Even with an unstable angina pectoris acetylsalicylic acid is used to prevent the blockage of small blood vessels in the heart.

Acetylsalicylic acid is commercially available in the form of tablets, effervescent tablets, suppositories or as granules. In the clinic, a water-soluble form of acetylsalicylic acid is given as an infusion solution directly into the blood.

    Aspirin for Cold

    I only took Aspirin Complex for one day (3 pieces). The following day, I was awakened by severe stomach pains and cramps that lasted until late in the evening. Thus Aspirin Complex is not to be recommended for me. I prefer to take the normal effervescent tablets again.

    Aspirin for Migraine

    In the beginning, aspirin quickly resolved my migraine attacks. I was able to continue my work normally. After about 11months I always got heavy nosebleeds after taking Aspirin Every now and then I also had an emergency doctor at my house. The last time, I had to go to the hospital. I’ve done my migraine today successfully with two acupuncture sessions (10 applications each), that’s all :-).

    Aspirin for A headache

    I often have a headache (maybe it’s migraine) and get it when you get stronger, sometimes with a tablet. The headache disappeared within about 2 hours, but then my stomach started to rebel. This went temporarily into stronger abdominal cramps and then finally into the multiple defecation over (which one can at least accelerate a little by drinking a lot of water). Unfortunately, these cramps lasted for several hours and forced me to the toilet every 15 minutes to the climax (I always tried to balance the loss of water). Slowly it got better,

    Side effects: Stomach cramps; Diarrhea

    Aspirin for Migraine; A headache

    Unfortunately, I often have to resort to aspirin because I often have a headache. Either through the pill, weather change or when I’m just before my period. Mostly I also have migraine, but then I always have to take two tablets of Aspririn or Aspirin migraine because it does not work otherwise. What I also noticed is that you should never take Aspirin without having eaten because otherwise you vomit because aspirin hits the stomach. Despite all this, I vomit quickly from bad migraine (if I have taken the tablet too late) only then it improves. I can only recommend aspirin, only you should take it in time otherwise it will not bring anything.

    Side effects: Vomit

    Aspirin for A headache

    Had the last time taken aspirin many years ago, because I never really suffer from a headache. But one day they were very strong and I took a tablet. After about 30 minutes, an incredible feeling of nausea forced me to lie down. In addition, I got a shortness of breath I’ve never had, every time I inhale, my lungs whistled and I was afraid to suffocate. Rash or the like I did not get. The nausea lasted about 9 hours, the shortness of breath about 4 hours, at the end it was only a whistling of the lungs when inhaling.
