Aspirin 300mg Gastro-resistant Tablets
Aspirin has analgesic, antipyretic and anti-inflammatory actions. It can also be used for the secondary prevention of thrombotic cerebrovascular or cardiovascular disease and following by-pass surgery (see below).
Aspirin has an anti-thrombotic action, mediated through inhibition of platelet activation, which has been shown to be useful in secondary prophylaxis following myocardial infarction, and in patients with unstable angina or ischaemic stroke including cerebral transient attacks.
Nu-Seals 300 is indicated wherever high and prolonged dosage of aspirin is required. The special coating resists dissolution in gastric juice, but will dissolve readily in the relatively less acid environment of the duodenum. Owing to the delay that the coating imposes on the release of the active ingredient, Nu-Seals 300 is unsuitable for the short-term relief of pain.
