Why is the Cartia® Duentric® coating so important?
Cartia® Duentric® coating allows the aspirin tablet to go through the stomach and not dissolve until it reaches the small intestine, where it is absorbed gradually into the bloodstream. By releasing low dose aspirin in the small intestine, Cartia® may reduce the occurrence of gastric irritation. The coating does not reduce the effectiveness of the aspirin.
If you are at risk of having a heart attack or stroke, speak to your doctor about if Cartia® low dose aspirin can help as part of an overall management plan to reduce your risk of heart attack or stroke.
