Acetylsal review

Acetylsal, also known as Aspirin (USAN), is used as an antipyretic to reduce fever, as an anti-inflammatory to reduce swelling, and as an analgesic to alleviate minor pains and aches. Acetylsal is used to relieve mild to moderate pain and to reduce fever from typical maladies such as headaches, toothaches, muscle aches, and the common cold. Acetylsal may be used to reduce arthritic swelling and pain as well. This is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medication or NSAID, which works by blocking a natural substance in the body to reduce inflammation, throbbing and aches.

The length of treatment and dosage are typically determined by the patient's condition and their response to the medication.

As a preventative measure for heart disease or a long-term anticoagulant the typical dose is 75 milligrams per day. Although this will vary depending on the healthcare professional's assessment of the patient and their condition. As a painkiller, the recommended dose is 275-300 milligrams every six to eight hours, but not exceeding three doses per day. Usually, one to two tablets every three to four hours may be used for adults, but no more than 12 within a 24-hour period. For children, it is half the adult dose at a maximum.

Do not treat a child younger than 12 years old with this medication unless you have consulted a healthcare professional first. Do not use this medication if you are on any other anti-coagulants such as Warferin or if you have had a stomach ulcer in the past twelve months. Read the product label for recommendations on the number doses you can take in a 24-hour period and how long you are able to self-treat before seeking medical advice. The recommended dose should not be your only basis for determining the proper dosage for your situation. Read the product label before taking any medication. Consult your healthcare professional if you have any further questions about proper dosage or taking this medicine.

Never take more of this medication than recommended or for a longer period than recommended unless your healthcare professional specifically directs you to do so.

Your healthcare professional also needs to know if you are allergic to any medications or if you have a bleeding or clotting disorder, kidney disease, liver disease, stomach ulcers, asthma or seasonal allergies, gout, nasal polyps, heart disease, hypertension, or congestive heart failure. You may need to adjust the dosage or have special tests run to safely take this medication if you currently have or have had any of the above conditions.
