Think Twice before Stopping Low-dose Aspirin

Patients who stopped aspirin had a 37% higher risk of cardiovascular events.

A large-scale Swedish study (600,000) of low-dose aspirin users found risk for cardiovascular events rose significantly after discontinuation. Risk increased soon after stopping and continued over time. (This study was partially funded by industry.)
