Ingredients: Duentric Enteric coated, Aspirin 100mg enteric coated tablets General: Aspirin has been shown to inhibit blood clotting & reduces the risk of heart attacks Duentric Enteric Coating reduces the risk of stomach irritation Why should you take Cartia? These tablets help you against some of the problems which can be caused by clotting in the blood stream such as heart attacks and stroke.The 100mg aspirin dose is smaller than you would need to take for a headache or other pain. If you require medication for the relief of temporary pain or fever, we suggest you take paracetamol and continue to take your Cartia tablets as usual. The aspirin in Cartia is released in the upper intestine where it is absorbed gradually into the blood stream. This slow absorption is believed to be necessary to maximize the anti-clotting effect. Why should I take Cartia instead of other aspirin? Aspirin, especially when taken on a long term basis, can cause irritation to the stomach. Enteric coated aspirin is often recommended for patients who are on long term aspirin therapy. Cartias?s Duentric enteric coating can reduce the risk of stomach problems because it remains intact until it reaches the upper intestine.This delayed action helps to prevent the irritation to the stomach often caused by uncoated aspirin preparations ? meaning less chance of upsets for those using aspirin therapy. What Else should I do as well as taking Cartia? Your doctor may recommend that you take Cartia on a long term basis. Some other changes that you can make to your lifestyle to help reduce the risk of heart attacks and stroke are: Reduce the amount of cholesterol you are eating in your diet.
