Cartia Tablets 100mg
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® 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.
So if you, or a person you care for, has been advised by your doctor to take a daily low dose aspirin, consider Cartia® – its special Duentric® coating is designed to protect the stomach from irritation caused by aspirin.
