What are Astrix™ capsules used for & how do they work?
Astrix™ 100mg capsules are a specialised formulation of aspirin designed to prevent blood platelets from sticking together and to reduce the chance of a blood clot forming. These blood clots could block an artery and therefore reduce or stop blood flow. This is especially important as we grow older, because our arteries can become narrower with fatty cholesterol and plaque build-up on the artery walls. Astrix™ capsules help to keep your blood flowing freely.
Astrix™ capsules contain 100mg of aspirin in the form of enteric coated pellets. This is considered to be a low-dose of aspirin, and differs from regular or extra strength aspirin formulations which are used for pain and headache relief.
Your doctor will advise you whether using Astrix™ capsules as part of an overall program to manage the risk of heart attack or stroke is suitable for you. Always read the label. Use only as directed. Please visit your doctor on a regular basis to monitor your condition.
