Let me start off by saying that it is not clear to me whether or not being on an aspirin is warranted in your case. In any event, it sounds like you started to take this aspirin on your own and not because you were told to do so by your doctor
. So it is important that you speak with your doctor. Generally speaking, there is no need to taper off an aspirin once you started it. It can be safely stopped assuming that it is not there to prevent a stroke or heart attack that you are susceptible to. In this type of situation, it is always a good idea for you to discuss this with your doctors
">primary care physician. Some doctors encourage patients that have certain risk factors for cardiovascular disease to take an aspirin every day. In your case, you have two risk factors in that you have hypertension and obesity. However, at your age, most doctors would not recommend taking it aspirin every day not because it is dangerous but because it is probably not that beneficial. Thus, I would suggest that you schedule an appointment with your primary care doctor to discuss this issue further and discuss lifestyle changes that can encourage weight loss and improve blood pressure.
