ASA why 81mg exactly?
I'm taking 81mg tablets of ASA (brand name Aspirin). Why 81 mg exactly, and not 79 or 80 or some other dosage? Is there empirical data to support a daily dosage of precisely 81 mg? Not likely. So, why 81? Just curious.

81 mg is the normal children's dose and easy to purchase. Some studies have found that the smaller dose works just as well as the 325's without the stomach upset and bleeding risks. Then again, later studies say that we really should be taking the 325's. Who knows. I figure if a patient has a serious risk of forming clots, then they will use coumadin or Lovenox and do INR blood work regularly.
