Aspirin

I had a quadruple bypass (no heart attack) five years ago. I take 325mg coated aspirin daily, 40mg Lipitor and 10 mg Altace. I have degenerative disc disease and my back is painful much of the time. Tylenol doesn't give much relief. Can I take up to six regular strength coated aspirin a day without disturbing the cardiovascular benefit of my daily dose or endangering myself in any other way? If not, can you suggest what I could take for pain management? Thank you,   Bill

You have to be careful with ASA because of the risk of GI bleeding.  I would not recommend taking that many a day.  If tylenol isn't working consider either darvocet-N or ultram.  I think you shold also probably consider seeing a physical therapist to help you with your back.
