See the NHSGGC Antiplatelet Guidelines for appropriate use of the following medicines. The existing guideline is available on the Clinical Guidelines store on StaffNet.
Aspirin enteric coated (EC) is not included in the Formulary and should not be used as the formulation does not reduce GI symptoms. If the patient experiences new gastro-intestinal symptoms, consider other contributory factors (e.g. alcohol intake or NSAID use) and then consider gastro-protection (e.g. omeprazole or lansoprazole).
