Aspirin 'safe' for brain-bleed strokes: Study

No icon Spot Light

Health Desk-23 May 2019: A new study said patients who have had a stroke caused by bleeding in the brain can safely take aspirin to cut their risk of future strokes and heart problems.

Aspirin thins the blood and so doctors have been cautious about giving it, fearing it could make bleeds worse.

But The Lancet research suggests it does not increase the risk of new brain bleeds, and may even lower it.

Experts say the "strong indication" needs confirming with more research.

Only take daily aspirin if your doctor recommends it, they advise.
