RE: [IP] RE: aspirin / High aspirin dosage may curb heart attack risk in diabetes

	High aspirin dosage may curb heart attack risk in diabetes
Increasing aspirin dosage may help curb heart attack risk in patients with
diabetes, according to researchers at the University of Alberta in Canada. A
researcher said those who had daily doses of up to 325 milligrams of aspirin
had 23% reductions in cardiovascular-related mortality. 

What do we do?

Subject: [IP] RE: aspirin

I just received this notification from Medco.  For everyone that takes a
low dose aspirin a day.

Here's something you should know: aspirin blocks the production of
chemicals known as prostaglandins, which cause the muscles inside of
blood vessels to relax and contribute to a decrease in blood pressure.
Because of this, aspirin can lessen the overall benefit of using
prescription drugs like lisinopril (Prinivil). 

This is just one example of an OTC (over the counter) product that can
interfere with your prescribed medications.
