At heart, we all want to get the most out of life.
If your doctor has recommended a low dose aspirin to reduce your risk of heart attack or stroke, choose Cartia® with Duentric® coating to protect your stomach from irritation.
If you are at risk of having a heart attack or stroke, or someone close to you is, you may have been told about the benefits of taking a daily, low dose aspirin. This is because low dose aspirin helps thin the blood, and helps lower the risk of heart attack or stroke.
Uncoated aspirin starts to break down in the stomach and may cause irritation to the stomach lining.
Cartia’s Duentric® coating
Cartia® low dose aspirin has a special Duentric® coating designed to prevent it from being released in the stomach, so that it is released lower in the intestine. By releasing aspirin lower in the intestine, Cartia® helps to minimise irritation to the stomach lining.
To help reduce the risk of a heart attack or stroke, it is recommended to take Cartia® every day. Cartia® is available in packs of 28, and 84 tablets. Cartia® contains 100mg aspirin.
The tablet cards are conveniently marked with a daily calendar to help you keep track of your daily dose.
It is recommended that you take just one Cartia® tablet at the same time every day.
How to take Cartia®
Do not break, crush or chew the tablet. Swallow the tablet whole with water. Do not double up if you happen to miss a dose.
And of course, always talk to your doctor first before using Cartia® as part of an overall management plan to help reduce your risk of heart attack or stroke.
If you are at risk of having a heart attack or stroke, speak to your doctor about how Cartia® can help you.
