Aspirin therapy may help reduce the risk of heart attack by thinning the blood and preventing clots. But it’s not safe for everyone.
The University of California – Davis Health System says you should be wary of aspirin therapy if you:
- Have kidney or liver disease.
- Drink three or more alcoholic beverages daily.
- Have uncontrolled high blood pressure.
- Take a blood-thinning medication.
- Have any possible symptoms of stroke.
