Hi

Thanks for posting your query.

Yes Enteric coated Aspirin ( Ecospirin) are more gastric friendly and causes less Gastric irrigation. But if you are having gastric reflux then even coated Aspirin also can cause gastric irritation.

In that case using Clopidogrel would be much better. Yes Clopidogrel is a good alternative for aspirin.

Hope this information was useful to you.
Any clarification feel free to ask.
