Acetylsalicylate review

Acetylsalicylate, more commonly known as Aspirin (USAN), is used to reduce fever, swelling, and to alleviate minor pains and aches. Acetylsalicylate 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. Acetylsalicylate may be used to reduce arthritic swelling and the pain associated with it as well. This is a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug or NSAID, which works by blocking a natural substance in the body to reduce inflammation, throbbing and aches.

Duration of treatment and dosage are typically determined by the patient's condition and their response to the medicament.

As a preventative measure for heart disease or a long-term anticoagulant the standard dose is 75 milligrams per day, although this will vary depending on the medical 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. Normally, 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, use half the adult dose at a maximum.
