Risk of Serious Bleeding from Aspirin May Not Be Worth the Benefits

In a report from Health News, the risk of serious bleeding from aspirin may not be worth the benefits, according to researchers. When you’ve become the victim of a dangerous drug case, seek legal counsel. U.S. health officials recommend that those who are considered to be at risk for heart disease (those with a family history, for example) or have suffered a heart attack, take a daily low dose of aspirin. Patients should opt out of taking aspirin and instead, make lifestyle changes that prevent heart disease, such as losing weight or quitting smoking. Even taking medication for conditions like high blood pressure is a better option.  The study found that aspirin didn’t prevent fatal heart attacks from occurring, and any prevention of non-fatal heart attacks was very minimal. However, there is a 30 percent chance that an individual taking aspirin on a daily basis could suffer significant bleeding. The risk was determined to outweigh the benefits after it was discovered that for every 2 cases where stroke or heart disease was prevented, there were more than 3 cases of severe bleeding.  You should seek guidance from a New York dangerous drug attorney if you suffered serious or life-threatening injuries due to a medication error. You may be entitled to compensation if your doctor prescribed aspirin and you suffered severe bleeding.
