If you take an aspirin or a baby aspirin once a day, take it at night. The reason: aspirin has a 24-hour "half-life." Therefore, if most heart attacks happen in the wee hours of the morning, the aspirin would be strongest in your system.
FYI, aspirin lasts a really long time in your medicine chest...years. (when it gets old, it smells like vinegar.)
WHY ASPIRIN BY YOUR BED
It saves lives! It is important to always have ASPIRIN in the home!!! Why have Aspirin by your bedside ?
ABOUT HEART ATTACKS
There are other symptoms of an heart attack besides the pain on the left arm. One must also be aware of an intense pain on the chin, as well as nausea and lots of sweating. However, these symptoms may also occur less frequently.
NOTE : There may be no pain in the chest during an heart attack. The majority of people (about 60%) who had an heart attack during their sleep, did not wake up. However, if it occurs, the chest pain may wake you up from your deep sleep.
If that happens, IMMEDIATELY DISSOLVE TWO ASPIRINS IN YOUR MOUTH and swa llow them with a bit of water.
Afterwards, first phone 911, then a neighbor or a family member who lives very close by an state "HEART ATTACK!!!" And that you have taken 2 ASPIRINS. Take a seat on a chair or sofa and wait for their arrival and ....DO NOT LIE DOWN!!!
