Each enteric coated tablet contains: Aspirin 100 mg.
Aspirin is a salicylate NSAID and has many properties in common with non-aspirin NSAIDs.
It has analgesic, anti-inflammatory and antipyretic properties; it has inhibitor of the enzyme cyclooxygenase, which results in the direct inhibition of the biosynthesis of prostaglandin and thromboxanes from arachidonic acid.
Aspirin also inhibits platelet aggregation; non-acetylated salicylates do not.
Aspirin is used for the prophylaxis of cerebrovascular disease or myocardial infarction or for the secondary prevention of thrombotic cerebrovascular or cardiovascular disease.
It is also used for pain, in musculoskeletal conditions, headache, dysmenorrhea, pyrexia, and fever.
