Hi well come to HCM.
Loprin is very low dose aspirin, its not going to harm you. But now queations have been
raised about its preventive role in non coronary people. So its doubt full to get any benifit out of it since at present you donot have any coronary heart disease at present.
But even if you continue it no harm except little gastric upset if your stomach is sensitive. Thanks
