What is aspirin used to treat?

Aspirin is a salicylate (sa-LIS-il-ate). It works by reducing substances in the body that cause pain, fever, and inflammation. Aspirin is used to treat pain, and reduce fever or inflammation. It is sometimes used to treat or prevent heart attacks, strokes, and chest pain (angina).

Why is it best to take aspirin at night?

Daily aspirin is one of the most common treatments for patients with a history of heart attack or stroke because it helps thin the blood and reduce risk of blood clots. However, a recent study found that aspirin may be most effective when taken at night, rather than in the morning.
