Aspirin Cardio contains acetylsalicylic acid.
Aspirin Cardio tablets are used to inhibit blood clotting (platelet aggregation) in the following situations:
– unstable angina; – acute myocardial infarction; – prevention of recurrent myocardial infarction; – after coronary artery surgery; – prevention of transient ischemic attacks and stroke, early stage of the latter condition; – prevention of coronary artery thrombosis in patients with multiple risk factors; – prevention of venous thrombosis and pulmonary embolism after long-term limb splinting
Do not take Aspirin Cardio:

Aspirin Cardio should not be used to treat viral infections in children and adolescents without consulting your doctor. Some viral diseases, especially the flu and chickenpox, carry a risk of Reye’s syndrome, a very rare but potentially life-threatening disorder that requires urgent medical attention. This risk may be increased with Aspirin Cardio. If persistent vomiting occurs in these conditions, this may be a sign of Reye’s syndrome.
