Taking aspirin every day could help reduce the risk of heart attack in some cases.

(HNGN) – New research suggests aspirin is effective in preventing heart attack in some individuals, but not all, a U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) news release reported. Daily aspirin use can also come with a number of side effects.

Robert Temple, M.D., deputy director for clinical science at the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) warns that every patient should speak to their healthcare provider before starting an aspirin regimen.

“Since the 1990s, clinical data have shown that in people who have experienced a heart attack, stroke or who have a disease of the blood vessels in the heart, a daily low dose of aspirin can help prevent a reoccurrence,” Temple says. (A dose ranges from the 80 milligrams (mg) in a low-dose tablet to the 325 mg in a regular strength tablet.) This use is known as “secondary prevention.”
