how to use aspirin, vitamins, and supplements to prevent heart disease in women

A consensus from the American Heart Assoc clarifies how to use aspirin, vitamins, and supplements to prevent heart disease in women.

Aspirin is suggested for women 65 and older...unless they are at risk for bleeding due to previous ulcers or GI bleeding. Advise taking 81 mg/day if blood pressure is controlled.

Recommend between 81 mg and 325 mg of aspirin daily for women who already have cardiovascular disease or those at high risk. Consider clopidogrel (Plavix) if they can't take aspirin.
