Aspirin, Is it ok to take?
cinder83 posted:

I have been taking tylenol now for years and its starting to not work so I asked my docotor and he said I could take aspirin. Is Beyer ok or is there another med that contains aspirin that's better for colitis patients? Im in a lot of pain and could use the help, thanks!!
swvagirl responded:
I have Crohn's disease and all the docs I have seen say not to take any type of advil alieve anything like that. It may be different with colitis but I am not sure.
sheba_q replied to swvagirl's response:
I have colitis and have been told no aspirin as well.
hannahleigh89 responded:
Aspirin and NSAIDS are known to cause stomach bleeding in healthy people, meaning that those of us with digestive issues can develop even more serious problems.
