Bayer is making crystal aspirin to dissolve under the tongue. They work much faster than the tablets.
Why keep aspirin by your bedside?
About Heart Attacks
There are other symptoms of an heart attack besides the painon 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 a heart attack. The majority of people (about 60%) who had a 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 swallow them with a bit of water.
Afterwards: - phone a neighbor or a family member who lives very close by - say "heart attack!" - say that you have taken 2 aspirins.. - take a seat on a chair or sofa near the front door, and wait for their arrival and... ~ do NOT lie down ~

- Guest 8 years agoMy family has a long history with hearth attacks, my grandfather and one of his sons died because of it and even though my father never had one i am afraid that it might happen to me. I didn't know that aspirin could help but i doubt i would be able to take the pills in those moments, i would be too panicked to do it and probably i would end up lying on the floor. Anyways, everybody dies in the end, i can't avoid dieing, can i? So that's i have decided to get ready for what's worse, just in case something unpredictable happens i got myself a good life insurance, at least my family won't have to worry about bills and other stuff after i am gone.
