Brief Answer:
You should take baby aspirin one tablets per day...

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you for asking!
I read your query and understood your concerns.

After reviewing your data my opinion is that you should take baby aspirin one tablets per day in order to prevent future cardiovascular events.

However I would like to check by my self all your medical data and recent examinations including Holter monitoring and cardiac echo. can you please upload these data for me?

I'm waiting for the data to be uploaded.

Hi ...
Im waiting for Holter results which us why im asking ... I have not spoken with my dr yet. Im not sure hiw often my bursts are but he saw them on my ICD so wanted to do a 24 hour holter. I will let u know. As long as there is no harm in a baby aspirin - i will continue to do so until i know more.

I take 40 mg nadalol and 100 mcg synthroid.
Will an 81mg if baby aspirin hurt me?

Thanks, XXXXXXX
