Report: Low-Dose Aspirin Linked To Bleeding In Skull
A NEW REPORT SAYS LOW-DOSE ASPIRIN LINKED TO BLEEDING IN THE SKULL
(CNN) – A new report appears to link taking low-dose Aspirin with an increased risk of bleeding in the skull.
The journal Jama Neurology published the report Monday.
In it, researchers focused on information from more than 130,000 people in 13-previous studies.
They say the subjects did not have a history of heart disease or stroke, but they received either Aspirin or a placebo to prevent the conditions.
The researchers concluded the risk of a head bleed was higher for those who took low-dose Aspirin.
According to the data, people who took the placebo had a 0.46% risk of head bleeds.
But, for those who took the aspirin the risk rose to 0.63%.
