MIXING ASPIRIN WITH HERBAL REMEDIES OR SUPPLEMENTS

Aspirin may not mix well with quite a lot of complementary and herbal medicines. Aspirin could change the way they work and increase your chances of side effects.

For safety, speak to your pharmacist or doctor before taking any herbal or alternative remedies with aspirin.

HOW DOES ASPIRIN FOR PAIN RELIEF WORK?

If you’ve been hurt or have an infection, your body makes hormones called prostaglandins. The prostaglandins cause swelling and sometimes fever and they send pain signals to the brain. This is all part of your body’s natural response to injury. The swelling and fever can help your body heal.

Aspirin stops your body making prostaglandins and this lowers the pain and reduces swelling and fever.

WHEN WILL I FEEL BETTER?

You should start to feel better 20 to 30 minutes after taking aspirin.

IS IT SAFE TO TAKE ASPIRIN FOR A LONG TIME?

It’s best to take the lowest dose that works for you for the shortest possible time. That way there’s less chance that you’ll get unwanted side effects like stomach ache.

HOW LONG SHOULD I TAKE ASPIRIN FOR?

If you’re taking aspirin for a short-lived pain like toothache or period pain, you may only need to take it for 1 or 2 days.

If you’ve bought it from a shop, supermarket or pharmacy and need to use aspirin for more than 3 days, ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

If your doctor has prescribed your aspirin, take it for as long as they recommend.

DOES ASPIRIN CAUSE STOMACH ULCERS?

Aspirin can cause ulcers in your stomach or gut, especially if you take it for a long time or in big doses.

Your doctor may tell you not to take aspirin if you have a stomach ulcer, or if you’ve had one in the past.

If you’re at risk of getting a stomach ulcer and you need a painkiller, take paracetamol instead of aspirin as it’s gentler on your stomach
