Welcome to Cartia®
If you have had a heart attack or stroke you may have been told about the benefits of taking a low dose aspirin, such as Cartia®. This is because low dose aspirin helps to thin the blood, and has been proven to help lower the risk of another heart attack or stroke.
Aspirin that is uncoated will start to break down in the stomach and may cause irritation to the stomach lining. Cartia® has a special Duentric® coating designed to release the aspirin lower in the intestine which helps to minimise stomach irritation.
