My Dr prescribed 325 aspirin but I only have 81mg. Can I just take 3 of the lower dose?

Hi Peg, well it would actually be 4 of the 81 mg tablets but I would urge you to keep the 81 mg tablets and use them for what they are for and just go out and get the normal size aspirin (325mg) from a local shop/pharmacy. While you are taking the higher dose of Aspirin you do not have to take the small dose as well.
Hope this helped.
