Question: What are the benefits/risks of aspirin?
there is the possibility of too much aspirin used can cause stomach bleeding or ulcers.we know its good for headaches and fever and pain,but some people find it disagreeable,so they should use something like acetaminophen,or ibuprophen.acetaminophen is the lesser of painkillers,and ibuprophen
is a slight bit stronger that i know.
it is a salicylate drug, often used as an analgesic to relieve minor aches and pains, as an antipyretic to reduce fever, and as an anti-inflammatory medication.
it is recommended that aspirin (or aspirin-containing products) should not be given to anyone under the age of 12 who has a fever.
Reye's syndrome, a rare but severe illness characterized by acute encephalopathy and fatty liver, can occur when children or adolescents are given aspirin for a fever or other illnesses or infections.
