Will Aspirin Lower High Blood Pressure

The treatment of blood pressure depends a lot on its causing factors. Medications like diuretics, alpha blockers, calcium beta channel blockers, ACE inhibitors etc are given by doctors after the existence and nature of blood pressure in your body is confirmed. Many people do mistake of taking medicines without doctors prescription. This can be a dangerous thing to do because many of these medicines carry side effects. One such common medicine which people take is Aspirin ( Disprin) . Whether it helps in lowering blood pressure or not depends upon the nature of your blood pressure.
 
If your blood has higher viscosity, i.e. it is thick, chances of you having high blood pressure are high. The heart will exert more pressure to circulate this thick blood throughout the circulatory system. In that case, the doctor may prescribe a combination of medicines in which Aspirin ( Disprin) or clopidogrel  will be included. Its capability to reduce the viscosity of blood is generally acknowledged. But, after a certain period of time it should be stopped. Aspirin ( Disprin)  has some side effects as well which may create problems at a later stage. Once the blood thins down, the doctor will also ask you to stop taking it. If you notice slight improvement while taking one Aspirin ( Disprin)  a day, do not automatically assume that you will experience twice as much improvement if you double the dose. There is definitely an upper limit to how much Aspirin ( Disprin)  you can take per day, and it’s a good idea to determine your therapeutic dose for lowering your blood pressure in conjunction with your physician’s guidance.

I am having BP of 145/95mmHg. My HB is 16.5 gdl and hematocrit of 53%. I have consultant a physician but he has not advised any medications rather told of life style modifications. I have tried it for last three months but is not working and reading is persitently raised. Will Ascard 75 mg per day help me in reducing this reading?
