Nonprescription aspirin is utilized for the purpose of reducing fever and alleviating mild to moderate pain associated with various conditions such as headaches, menstrual periods, arthritis, toothaches, and muscle aches. Aspirin is also prescribed to prevent heart attacks in individuals with a previous history of heart attack or angina (chest pain resulting from insufficient oxygen supply to the heart).

Aspirin belongs to a category of medications known as salicylates, which function by inhibiting the production of specific naturally occurring substances responsible for fever, pain, inflammation, and blood clot formation.

Uses and Dosage

When using this medication for self-treatment, adhere to all instructions provided in the product packaging. If you have any inquiries, consult your doctor or pharmacist.

If your healthcare provider has specifically directed you to take this medication, follow the prescribed regimen precisely.

Administer this medication orally and ensure to consume a full glass of water (8 ounces/240 milliliters) with it, unless instructed otherwise by your doctor. Refrain from lying down for at least 10 minutes after taking the medication. In the event of stomach upset, it is permissible to take the medication with food or milk.

Swallow enteric-coated tablets whole, without crushing or chewing them, as doing so can aggravate stomach discomfort.

The appropriate dosage and duration of treatment will be determined based on your medical condition and response to therapy. Refer to the product label for recommendations on the maximum number of tablets that can be taken within a 24-hour period, as well as guidelines regarding the duration of self-treatment before seeking medical advice. Avoid exceeding the recommended dosage or prolonging the treatment duration without the direction of your doctor. Use the lowest effective dose.

If you are using this medication for self-treatment of headaches and experience difficulty speaking, weakness on one side of the body, or sudden changes in vision, seek immediate medical assistance.

Prior to using this drug, consult a doctor or pharmacist if your headaches are caused by a head injury, coughing, bending, or if they are accompanied by severe or persistent vomiting, fever, and stiff neck.

If you are taking this medication on an as-needed basis, note that pain medications are most effective when taken at the first signs of pain. Delaying the administration of the medication may result in reduced efficacy. Enteric-coated or slow-release aspirin may take longer to alleviate pain due to slower absorption.

Do not use this medication for self-treatment of pain for more than 10 days, or to self-treat a fever lasting longer than 3 days. In such cases, consult a doctor as you may have an underlying and more serious condition. Promptly inform your doctor if you experience ringing in the ears or difficulty hearing.

If your condition persists or worsens (including the onset of new or unusual symptoms, redness/swelling in the affected area, or persistent pain/fever), or if you suspect a serious medical issue, promptly inform your doctor.

Side Effects

Some side effects may occur that usually do not need medical attention:

  • nausea
  • vomiting
  • stomach pain
  • heartburn

Inform your healthcare provider immediately if you experience any serious side effects:

  • hives
  • rash
  • swelling of the eyes, face, lips, tongue, or throat
  • wheezing or difficulty breathing
  • hoarseness
  • fast heartbeat
  • fast breathing
  • cold, clammy skin
  • ringing in the ears

  • black or tarry stools


Prior to initiating aspirin treatment, inform your doctor or pharmacist about any allergies you may have, particularly if you are allergic to aspirin, other salicylates, other pain relievers or fever reducers (NSAIDs like ibuprofen, naproxen), or if you have any other known allergies. This product may contain inactive ingredients that can potentially trigger allergic reactions or other complications.

If you have certain medical conditions, consult your doctor or pharmacist before using this medication. These conditions include bleeding or blood-clotting disorders, kidney disease, liver disease, diabetes, stomach problems, aspirin-sensitive asthma, nasal polyps, gout, or specific enzyme deficiencies (pyruvate kinase or G6PD deficiency).

This medication has the potential to cause stomach bleeding. Regular consumption of alcohol and tobacco, particularly when combined with this product, may heighten the risk of this side effect. Limit alcoholic beverages and cease smoking.

Children and adolescents under 18 years of age should avoid taking aspirin if they have chickenpox, flu, or any undiagnosed illness, or if they have recently received a vaccine. In these situations, the use of aspirin increases the risk of Reye’s syndrome, a rare but serious illness. Promptly notify your doctor if you observe changes in behavior accompanied by nausea and vomiting, as this could be an early indication of Reye’s syndrome.

Older adults may be more susceptible to the side effects of this medication, particularly stomach or intestinal bleeding and ulcers.

Aspirin is not recommended for pain relief or fever reduction during pregnancy. Women of childbearing age should discuss the benefits and risks of aspirin with their doctor(s) before using this medication. Inform your doctor if you are pregnant or planning to become pregnant. This medication may harm an unborn baby and cause complications during labor and delivery. Its use is generally not recommended during pregnancy from 20 weeks until delivery. If your doctor determines that you need to use this medication between 20 and 30 weeks of pregnancy, it should be taken at the lowest effective dose for the shortest duration possible. In certain cases, low-dose aspirin (usually 81-162 milligrams per day) may be safely used during pregnancy for the prevention of specific conditions. Consult your doctor for further guidance.

Aspirin passes into breast milk. When used in large quantities, it may be harmful to a nursing infant. Breastfeeding is not recommended while using this drug. Low-dose aspirin for heart attack or stroke prevention may be used if specifically directed by your doctor. Prior to breastfeeding, consult your doctor for guidance.

Form and Strength

Aspirin Enteric Coated is available in the following forms and strengths:

  • Aspirin Enteric Coated enteric-coated tablet:

    • 81mg
    • 325mg


Why is it important to drink water immediately after taking aspirin?

Aspirin should be taken with a full eight ounces of water to ease swallowing and facilitate absorption of the aspirin.

What is the difference between aspirin and enteric coated aspirin?

The enteric coating prevents the aspirin from dissolving in the stomach. Instead, it is designed to pass through the stomach and dissolve in the small intestine, where most nutrients and drugs are absorbed anyway. Thus, the stomach lining is protected from irritation.
