Thanks for writing your query to us.
Bleeding in stool is a serious side effect of Aspirin. Kindly stop Aspirin for few days till the bleeding stops. Since you are feeling dizziness there is a possiblity that you have developed low Hemoglobin due to blood loss, Consult your treating physician who will examine you in detail for symptoms & signs of anemia.
Wish you good health.

Hi Thanks for your question
You’re taking ecosprin 75mg and you have developed side effects like bleeding in stools, gastric problems.
Your blood pressure is normal and your ECG is normal.
You want to stop Ecosprin.
You have to stop ecospirin for some time, as you’re bleeding through stool, but final decision to stop ecospirin lies with your physician, who can do so after going through a battery of test.
Hope I answered your question.
