Brief Answer: Don't worry / can take the dose now Detailed Answer: Hi friend, Welcome to Health Care Magic Relax… Missing a dose of aspirin is not a thing of serious concern… It acts by permanent acetylation of the platelet enzymes and hence the effect lasts 10 to 20 days! If a dose forgotten, take the next dose, when you become aware – that is all! Keep an alarm to remind – they are available in Pharmacy / you can use your smart phone, computer and so on The treating doctor can suggest further based on his assessment of the situation. Discuss with your doctor, during your next appointment Good luck Take care Wishing all well God bless
