You should only take preventative aspirin on your doctors recommendation. This is because the side effects may be serious and it is not a drug for everyone.
The usual dose for your purpose is 75 mg to 325 mg orally once a day depending on circumstances.
What strength is your aspirin tablet?

thx alot suzaanne for answering, i sort of know this stuff (i'm a pharmacist), but maybe my question was not specific enough, i meant, is it enough to take it every other day not every day?? (100 mg)

As far as I understand alternate-day dosing with low-dose aspirin may provide
adequate protection against cardiovascular events in some
individuals but current guidelines recommend daily dosing. You will probably need to talk with your doctor for a more specific answer. All the best.
