Is Disprin good for health? How safe is the use of dispirin?

Today, I was suffering from severe Headache pain and have started searching many sites for information based on uses and benefits or consequences of Disprin and found out some amazing and knowledgeable facts.

I have taken 1 tablet of Disprin and it gave me mind relaxation on an instant basis just for time being but the best way of curing Headache is finding the exact cause and take a right consultation from your Doctor.

Please read some points of Using Disprin. Below Contents are extracted from Online Information available on various sites so a special request to contact your Doctors and take their consultation first before using any of information below;

Common side-effects Gastrointestinal complaints (stomach upset, dyspepsia, heartburn, small blood loss). To help avoid these problems, it is recommended that aspirin be taken at or after meals. Undetected blood loss may lead to hypochromic anemia. Severe gastrointestinal complaints (gross bleeding and/or ulceration), requiring discontinuation and immediate treatment. Patients receiving high doses and/or long-term treatment should receive gastric protection with high-dosed antacids, ranitidine or omeprazole.

Frequently, central effects (dizziness, tinnitus, hearing loss, vertigo, centrally mediated vision disturbances, and headaches). The higher the daily dose is, the more likely it is that central nervous system side effects will occur. Sweating, seen with high doses, independent from antipyretic action Long-term treatment with high doses (arthritis and rheumatic fever): often increased liver enzymes without symptoms, rarely reversible liver damage. The potentially fatal Reye’s syndrome may occur, if given to pediatric patients with fever and other signs of infections. The syndrome is due to fatty degeneration of liver cells. Up to 30 percent of those afflicted will eventually die. Prompt hospital treatment may be life-saving. Chronic nephritis with long-term use, usually if used in combination with certain other painkillers. This condition may lead to chronic renal failure. Prolonged and more severe bleeding after operations and post-traumatic for up to 10 days after the last aspirin dose.

If one wishes to counteract the bleeding tendency, fresh thrombocyte concentrate will usually work. Skin reactions, angioedema, and bronchospasm have all been seen infrequently.

Overdose – Aspirin overdose can be acute or chronic. In acute poisoning, a single large dose is taken; in chronic poisoning, supratherapeutic doses are taken over a period of time. Acute overdose has a mortality rate of 2%. Chronic overdose is more commonly lethal with a mortality rate of 25%; chronic overdose may be especially severe in children.

Symptoms – Aspirin overdose has potentially serious consequences, sometimes leading to significant morbidity and mortality. Patients with mild intoxication frequently have nausea and vomiting, abdominal pain, lethargy, tinnitus, and dizziness. More significant symptoms occur in more severe poisonings and include hyperthermia, tachypnea, respiratory alkalosis, metabolic acidosis, hypokalemia, hypoglycemia, hallucinations, confusion, seizure, cerebral edema, and coma.

The most common cause of death following an aspirin overdose is cardiopulmonary arrest usually due to pulmonary edema.

Toxicity – The toxic dose of aspirin is generally considered greater than 150 mg per kg of body mass. Moderate toxicity occurs at doses up to 300 mg/kg, severe toxicity occurs between 300 to 500 mg/kg, and a potentially lethal dose is greater than 500 mg/kg.

This is the equivalent of many dozens of the common 325 mg tablets, depending on body weight. Please note that children cannot tolerate as much aspirin per unit body weight as adults can, even when aspirin is indicated. Label-directions should be followed carefully.

I hv gone through many cases, sometimes its effects are bad. So one should take medicines with the consultation of doctors only. No one knows whether it will suit a particular person or not.

one tab in 2-3 days 4 long consumption can cause the foll side effects:epigastric distress, gastric ulcers and hemorrhagenausea n vomiting skin reactions like urticaria, rhinitis ie running nose, angioedema ie swelling up of face, asthma.salicylism characterised by dizziness,tinnitus, hearing impairment. vertigo. confusion. electrolyte imbalancealso liver and kidney failure and thinning of blood leading to pupura and clotting be careful in using itone question: y do u neeed to use it for some heart disorder or something trivial?

yes . disprin is safe for the amount of consumption you have mentioned. I read somewhere that asprin is actually good for the heart. But i do think that anything , however good, in excess is not advisable. So if you can cut own on your disprin intake it woudl be better.if you really can’t do without it, maybe you shoudl consult a doc.
