Wayne Pharmaceuticals has launched Dr Wayne’s Aspirin Tablets in the US in a bottle package containing 300 tablets, each having 81mg strength.
Dr. Wayne’s Aspirin is an enteric-coated tablet which does not upset the stomach.
Aspirin tablets are mainly used to lower the stroke risk in persons who had a mini-stroke (transient ischemic attack) or stroke due to blood clot.
The drug can be used to prevent myocardial infarction in patients with cardiovascular disease as it prevents clot formation.
Aspirin is also used to get relief from pain as an analgesic without any anesthesia or loss of consciousness. It can also reduce inflammation if taken in higher doses.
Dr. Wayne’s Aspirin is said to be beneficial to African Americans as they are at a higher risk of cardiovascular problems. Aspirin is used to reduce fever and inflammation, for pain relief, as a blood thinner to prevent strokes and heart attacks.
