Aspirin Enteric Coated is a pain reliever used to temporarily relieve minor aches and pains or used as prescribed by a medical professional. 

As a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), Aspirin Enteric Coated works by blocking a natural substance in the body to alleviate pain and swelling. However, due to its delayed onset of action, it is unsuitable for alleviating symptoms requiring immediate relief, such as headaches. 

Uses and Dosage 

Before taking Aspirin Enteric Coated, read its medication guide and patient information leaflet carefully. If you have questions or concerns, do not hesitate to seek guidance from your physician or pharmacist. 

The dosage and length of treatment with Aspirin Enteric Coated may vary per individual based on their medical condition and response to treatment.

  • For 325mg caplets, adults and children aged 12 years and older should take 1 to 2 caplets every 4 hours, not exceeding 12 caplets within 24 hours, unless directed otherwise by a physician.
