Astrix™ is a low dose form of aspirin that is designed to prevent blood platelets from sticking together and to help reduce the chance of a blood clot forming. These blood clots could block an artery and therefore reduce or stop blood flow.
Astrix™ helps to keep your blood flowing freely and reduces the risk of heart attack and stroke in patients with known cardiovascular or cerebrovascular disease.
What are Astrix™ capsules used for & how do they work?
Astrix™ 100mg capsules are a specialised formulation of aspirin designed to prevent blood platelets from sticking together and to reduce the chance of a blood clot forming. These blood clots could block an artery and therefore reduce or stop blood flow. This is especially important as we grow older, because our arteries can become narrower with fatty cholesterol and plaque build-up on the artery walls. Astrix™ capsules help to keep your blood flowing freely.
Astrix™ capsules contain 100mg of aspirin in the form of enteric coated pellets. This is considered to be a low-dose of aspirin, and differs from regular or extra strength aspirin formulations which are used for pain and headache relief.
Your doctor will advise you whether using Astrix™ capsules as part of an overall program to manage the risk of heart attack or stroke is suitable for you. Always read the label. Use only as directed. Please visit your doctor on a regular basis to monitor your condition.
How should I take Astrix™ capsules?
Your doctor or pharmacist will tell you how many capsules you will need to take each day. However, the most common dose is one Astrix™ 100 mg capsule once daily with food. Set aside a regular time to take Astrix™ capsules, preferably with a meal so you remember. Each Astrix™ capsule should be swallowed whole with a full glass of water.
Astrix™ capsules are packed in a calendar pack for your convenience. Take one capsule on the corresponding day of the week and follow the arrows around the platform until all capsules are taken. Follow all directions given to you by your doctor or pharmacist carefully.
Astrix™ capsules may be used to prevent or protect against heart disease or stroke and should only be taken under a doctor’s supervision. Astrix™ is usually taken for a long period of time. Please visit your doctor on a regular basis to monitor your condition.
