What are Aspirin Tablets (Brand May Vary)?

Aspirin tablets are a treatment for pain, swelling, and a high temperature. These 300mg tablets, also known as high dose aspirin, work as pain relief and are can help to soothe a wide range of conditions. If you’re looking for a simple and reliable way to ease your aches and pains, you can’t go far wrong with aspirin tablets.

 

How to take 300mg aspirin tablets

Take 1 - 3 aspirin tablets every four hours with a sip of water or another cool drink. Take this dose up to four times a day, leaving at least 4 hours between each dose. Do not take more than 12 tablets within 24-hours. If you’re still experiencing your pain or other symptoms after 3 days, you should speak to your doctor.

 

How does aspirin work to relieve pain?

Aspirin is a type of pain relief medication that can also help to relieve swelling and bring down a high temperature. It’s part of a group of medications called Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs, or NSAIDs, which means it works in the same way as ibuprofen, naproxen, and other similar medications. Aspirin blocks hormones called prostaglandins, which are responsible for pain and swelling, keeping them from sending pain signals to your brain. Reducing this combination of symptoms makes aspirin ideal for treating injuries, headaches, and cold and flu symptoms, to name but a few.

 

What can I use these tablets for?

Aspirin can be used to ease the symptoms of a wide range of issues, specifically pain, swelling, and a fever. Some of the most common reasons that people take this product include:

  • Headaches
  • Migraines
  • Period pain
  • Toothache
  • Nerve pain (neuralgia)
  • Sore throat
  • Sprains, strains, and other injuries
  • Joint pain or stiffness
  • Sciatica
  • Lumbago
  • Muscular pain or aching
  • Fibrositis

 

Can I use aspirin 300mg to help prevent heart attacks or strokes?

Many people take aspirin to help prevent heart attacks or strokes, especially if they are at high risk of one. However, 300mg aspirin tablets are not the dose you need for this purpose, in fact, this dose is much too high to take every day as a preventative measure. If your healthcare team have told you that you need to take low-dose aspirin or baby aspirin for your heart health, you’ll need one 75mg tablet a day. You may be given a prescription for this type of aspirin, but you can also purchase it from us — and that might work out cheaper!

 

Can I take these tablets if I’m pregnant or breastfeeding?

If you’re pregnant or breastfeeding you should speak to your doctor or pharmacist before taking this product. You should not take aspirin during the last 3 months of your pregnancy (your third trimester) or when you’re breastfeeding. You may be able to take these tablets during the first stages of your pregnancy, but only if it’s recommended to you by a medical professional. As a general rule of thumb, you should not take any unnecessary medications during pregnancy or while breastfeeding, and your healthcare team can help you to find medications or alternative treatments that are right for you and your baby.

 

Can I take this pain relief along with my usual medication?

If you’re taking any other medication you should speak to your doctor or pharmacist before taking aspirin tablets. This especially applies if you are already taking:

  • Metoclopramide, which is used for sickness and digestive disorders
  • Blood thinners, also known as anticoagulants, e.g. warfarin, heparin, nicoumalone
  • Corticosteroids, which are used for arthritis, asthma, and inflammation, e.g. hydrocortisone
  • NSAIDs, also known as Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs, e.g. ibuprofen
  • Medications for high blood pressure, e.g. diuretics or water tablets, Angio-II receptor antagonists, ACE inhibitors
