Thank you for entrusting us with your care. We are aware of a recent study produced in the New England Journal of Medicine indicating concerns about the risks of taking a baby aspirin daily.
CIS recommends that you continue to take your baby aspirin daily as prescribed by your physician, unless otherwise specified. If you have any questions, please consult with your physician at your next visit. However, do not stop taking your aspirin.
As the article states, "There is still strong evidence that a daily baby aspirin can reduce the risk that many people who have already suffered a heart attack or stroke will suffer another attack." It is also still helpful for those who are at high risk.
As always, thank you for your support as we strive to continue providing the most advanced cardiovascular care to you and your families.
