Hello there..

welcome to healthcare magic forum..

No..i don think so u need to stop or reduce the dose of ecopsirin unless you notice side effects such as bleeding! !It is always good to take ecopsirin after the age of 40 as Low doses of aspirin are recommended for the secondary prevention of strokes and heart attacks.

Hope this helps.

take care..
