Aspirin(ASA)(350 mg)


Aspirin is used to treat pain including headache, migraine, neuralgia, toothache, sore throat, pain in joints, period pains and to reduce fever. It is also used as an anti-platelet agent (blood thinner) to decrease chances of heart attack in patients.

How it works

Aspirin (acetyl salicylic acid) is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug. Aspirin reduces the production of a chemical (prostaglandin) in the body by blocking the enzyme that makes prostaglandins (cyclooxygenase). Therefore,  swelling, pain, and fever are reduced. This also helps in blood thinning and in preventing clotting.
