Cartia 100mg Tablets help protect you from
some of the problems that can be caused by
clotting in the blood stream.
The special coating on Cartia tablets prevents the
aspirin from being released in your stomach where
it could cause gastric upsets. The aspirin is
released lower down in the intestines, where it is
absorbed gradually in the blood stream. This
gradual absorption is believed to be necessary for
the best anti-clotting effect.
Do not take Cartia if:
* you have had an allergic reaction to aspirin or
any of the other ingredients contained in this
medicine. Signs of allergic reaction may include
an itchy skin rash, shortness of breath and
swelling of the face or tongue;
* you have a bleeding disorder such as
haehmophilia and Von Willebrand's disease;
* you have stomach bleeding, gastritis or an
active stomach ulcer.
The active ingredient in Cartia is acetylsalicylic
acid (aspirin) 100mg.
The recommended dosage is one Cartia tablet at the
same time every day.
Take Cartia with a glass of water. Cartia should be
swallowed whole, without crushing, chewing or
breaking the tablet.
