Lower doses for strokes
About the author: 

Stroke victims can reduce their dosage of aspirin by nine tenths and still prevent further recurrences

Stroke victims can reduce their dosage of aspirin by nine tenths and still prevent further recurrences.

A study at the University Hospital Utrecht, which examined a total of 300 patients over two and a half years, found that the group given the 30 mg a day suffered a death rate of 14.7 per cent, compared with 15.2 per cent in the group given 283 mg a day, the standard dosage.

There were also slightly fewer major bleeding complications in the group receiving the lower dosage and fewer cases of minor bleeding and stomach problems.
