STROKE PREVENTION STARTS WITH KNOWING THE FACTS

In the U.S. someone has some kind of stroke every 40 seconds. That’s about 795,000 strokes each year, and many of those happen to people who’ve already had one. Sadly, many people don’t realize that strokes are largely preventable and treatable , and many others might not even know what a stroke is.

MANAGING RISK:

WHY PRESCRIPTION MEDICATIONS MAY NOT BE ENOUGH

If you take prescription medications for high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and diabetes, they may not be enough to protect your heart. Talk to your doctor about whether these medications are enough for you and whether adding an aspirin regimen can help further reduce the risk of another heart attack or clot-related (ischemic) stroke.

Aspirin is not appropriate for everyone, so be sure to talk to your doctor before you begin an aspirin regimen.
