hi sir/mam,aspirin is needed for you now only for prevention.so,the preventive dose of aspirin is 81mg which your doctor had suggested.dont worry as no undue effects occur with dose reduction.you may not be having any problem with high dose but there is always increased risk of bleeding and especially intracranial with each year of such high dose usage.hope i'm clear.any further queries,please let me know.its my pleasure to be of any help to you.thank you.take care.bye.
