If you are currently taking any other medication or even herbal supplement, please speak to your GP or one of our pharmacists first. Many supplements and medications can mak your blood more or less fluid, and therefore they can interact with aspirin, potentially increasing the risk of side effects, or reducing the effect of the medication.

if you have a surgery planned (any kind of surgery, including dental), please mention that you are taking aspirin, as the doctor or dentist might ask you to take a break to not risk bleeding.

If you notice any unusual bruising or bleeding (e.g. gengival/gums bleeding) please consult your GP immediately or speak to one of our pharmacists.
There are also other side effects, but they are very rare. Please read the leaflet for a complete list of all side effects and common they are.
Symptoms may last for a period of 4–8 days after you stop taking aspirin. This is especially important in case you are scheduled for surgery, as it can increase the risk of bleeding, which can in some cases can also lead to anemia.
