The active ingredient contained within Aspirin Dispersible tablets is acetylsalicylic acid. Aspirin isa type of medicine known as a non-steroidal anti-inflammatory (NSAIDs). It blocks the functioning of the enzyme cyclo-oxygenase (COX). This enzyme helps produce prostaglandins, which cause symptoms such as inflammation and pain. COX also helps produce thromboxane, which makes blood clots happen by causing platelets to clump up. Preventing COX from functioning will reduce the production of these chemicals, alleviating pain and inflammation. The effect of preventing blood clots means that aspirin can increase the chances of surviving a hear attack, as such blood clots can block blood supply to the heart.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • What should I know before taking aspirin?

    Most people do not suffer from any side effects from aspirin. Sometimes side effects such as nausea, stomach pain and indigestion are experienced. If the aspirin is taken alongside food, these side effects are less likely to appear.

    Some more serious side effects may occur in rare cases. These include bleeding in the intestines or stomach and ulceration. Such side effects are more common in elderly people than younger people. If you experience blood in vomit or stools after using this medicine, stop using it immediately and consult a doctor.

    If you feel the need to use Disprin for more than three days, consult with a doctor or pharmacist first.

    Avoid taking painkillers for headaches too often, as this can make the headaches worse.

  • Why shouldn't aspirin be given to children under 16 years of age?

    Aspirin should only be given to children under 16 years old if prescribed by a doctor. Use of aspirin in children has been linked to a condition called Reye's syndrome, which while rare, can prove fatal. The exact cause of Reye's syndrome is unknown, but it appears to be associated with the use of aspirin in children with a virus. For children under 16, there are plenty of paracetamol and ibuprofen products that have no association with Reye's syndrome to use.

  • How it works

    Cetirizine affects histamine receptors to block allergic responses and allergy symptoms. Cetirizine:

    Treats allergic reactions including perennial allergic rhinitis and chronic urticaria (hives).

    Helps control symptoms such as sneezing, watery eyes, itching and runny nose.

    Generally does not cause drowsiness

  • How long does it take to work?

    Cetirizine usually has an effect within 1 hour of taking the syrup.

  • How long does it last?

    ONE dose will last for 24 hours.

  • Can I take aspirin with other medicines?

    Consult with a doctor or pharmacist before using aspirin alongside other medicines, including herbal and non-prescription medicines.If aspirin is taken alongside other medicines that increase the risk of bleeding, there may be an increased risk of bleeding.

     You should not take aspirin alongside the medicine methotrexate, as aspiring reduces the body's ability to remove methotrexate.

  • What if I take twice the dosage?

    A 10mg dose of Cetirizine is more effective than a 5mg dose. However, a 20mg dose gives no added effect.
