Durlaza (aspirin) is a 24-hour, extended release aspirin formulation for the secondary prevention of stroke and acute cardiac events, including myocardial infarction (heart attack).

Low-dose aspirin works by inhibiting platelet aggregation (blood clotting) and is a standard treatment for the prevention of stroke and heart attack in patients who have already had a stroke, heart attack, or other cardiovascular event. Traditional immediate-release aspirin formulations have a duration of action of four to six hours. Durlaza extends the release of aspirin utilizing extended-release, microcapsule technology offering 24-hour antiplatelet therapy. The capsules are taken once daily, and like immediate-release aspirin, can increase the risk of bleeding and gastric ulceration, and may cause fetal harm when administered to a pregnant woman.
