Aspirin Timing Is Everything

Aspirin Timing Is Everything, You can use aspirin to reduce the risk of having a heart attack but you have to be careful., An aspirin nightcap might reduce the risk of suffering a heart attack in the morning, research suggests.

Scientists gave the painkiller to 290 heart patients who were told to take it either upon waking or at bedtime over two periods of three months.

At the end of each period, their blood pressure and platelet activity were measured.

Blood pressure was not affected, but aspirin taken at night led to a significant reduction in platelet activity. Lowered platelet activity, which peaks in the morning, is likely to result in less blood clotting and a reduced risk of heart attacks.
