When is the ideal time to take low dose aspirin?

Does it matter whether I take my low dose aspirin first thing in the morning or should I be taking it at bedtime?
I have been taking it with my other meds. first thing in the morning for years now. Then I just heard that we should
be taking them at bedtime. I would like to hear your advise on this please. thanks.

Hello,
Thanks for your query.
Taking aspirin at the right time may be the key to preventing heart attacks, stroke, and even high blood pressure. Low-dose aspirin is known to reduce the risk of heart attack in high-risk patients.
"Timed administration of low-dose aspirin could be a valuable approach not only for the prevention of major cardiovascular events, but also for the control of blood pressure in patients with mild-to-moderate [high blood pressure],"
I do hope that you have found something helpful and I will be glad to answer any further query.
Take care
I find this answer helpful
