Like most of you, I take aspirin daily, 162.5mg (it used to be 325 until my stomach rebelled). Most cardiologists recommend aspirin for heart disease sufferers.
Aspirin works by interfering with the generation of thromboxane A2 (TXA2) which is needed for platelet aggregation (clotting). The COX-1 enzyme acts on arachidonic acid (AA) to produce endoperoxides that in turn produce TXA2. Aspirin interferes with the generation of TXA2 by irreversably acetylating the platelet COX-1 enzyme thereby blocking its access to AA. Because platelets are anucleate , they cannot generate additional COX-1. In the absence of TXA2, platelet aggregation does not occur. Got all that?! Most practitioners prescribe anywhere from 81mg to 325mg for heart patients. Studies such as CURE suggest 81mg is optimal. The ISIS-2 study puts the dose at 162mg (for recent heart attack sufferers) and, frankly, since aspirin is so cheap, many simply make the leap to "more must be better." Ahh, but there are downsi...
