Aspitec 150 MG Description

Aspitec Tablet is an antiplatelet medicine (blood thinner). It contains aspirin as its active ingredient. It is used to prevent the formation of blood clots. This helps reduce the risk of heart attac

ks, stroke and angina due to blood clots. Blood clots are one of the factors that can cause heart attacks, stroke and other critical health conditions. Blood clots can limit or block the passage of blood to essential organs, resulting in a heart attack or stroke. It works by slowing down blood clotting and hence prevents the formation of blood clots within blood vessels. Before initiating treatment with the Aspitec Tablet inform your doctor about your complete medical and medication history. The treating doctor will decide the dose and duration of the treatment. It's best to take this medicine with food so it doesn't upset your stomach. Avoid missing any dose of this Tablet. While taking this medicine you can incorporate certain lifestyle modifications to boost your health such as quitting smoking, limiting alcohol consumption, regular exercise and eating a healthy balanced diet.
