What is the Difference Between Duentric Coated Low Dose Aspirin and Plain Low Dose Aspirin?

Plain low dose aspirin (or uncoated low dose aspirin) starts to break down in the stomach and may cause irritation to the stomach lining.

Cartia® low dose aspirin has a special Duentric® enteric coating designed to prevent it from being released in the stomach. By releasing aspirin lower, in the small intestine, Cartia® helps to minimise irritation to the stomach lining.

So if you, or a person you care for, has been advised by your doctor to take a daily low dose aspirin, consider Cartia® – its enteric coating is designed to protect the stomach from irritation.
