Aspirin 300mg contains aspirin. Aspirin is used:

  • as an anti-inflammatory analgesic which can relieve pain and swelling
  • to bring down high body temperatures
  • to prevent recurrence of heart attacks or strokes by thinning the blood. If someone who has previously had a heart attack or stroke takes Aspirin 300mg regularly, it reduces the risk of a blood clot occurring in the heart or brain. This can prevent further heart attacks or strokes.
  • Always take Aspirin 300mg exactly as your doctor has told you to. Check with your doctor or pharmacist if you are not sure.

    The usual dose is different in the following circumstances:

    • Pain and swelling, or fever
      Take up to three 300mg tablets three or four times a day.
    • Acute rheumatic disorders (joint and muscle problems)
      Your doctor will tell you how many tablets to take and how often. You will usually take 4 to 8 grams of Aspirin 300mg a day.
    • Prevention of heart attacks, angina or mini-strokes
      The usual dose is one or two 75mg tablets each day. Sometimes, your doctor may tell you to take one 300mg tablet each day.


    Swallow the tablets whole with water. Do not cut, crush or chew them as this will damage the special coating. If the coating is damaged the tablets are more likely to irritate your stomach.
