    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!!

    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.
