I assume that because I take junior aspirin once a day that my GP has put me on
a 20 mg daily dose. I have no history of stomach problems and and I am wondering if this is an over protective measure and unnecessary . I am 77 and
basically healthy and fit apart from arthritis, enlarged benign prostate,blood pressure controlled by ramipril... O.K. so I am not so fit but feel well and I am
very active - ten pin bowling, ballroom dancing ,gardening 5 acres ! Do I really need another pill ? I take statins - which I'm not sure I need... perhaps it's ONLY the pills which are keeping me alive... who knows ?
