Mechanism of action
When you take aspirin for aches, pains, and to reduce fever, you know that it is working because you soon feel better. When taking aspirin to prevent a heart attack or stroke, you don’t “feel better” if the aspirin is doing its job, because you can’t feel the effects it has on your platelets. Aspirin works to prevent heart attacks and strokes by reducing the production of thromboxane, a chemical that makes platelets sticky. When aspirin works as it should, platelets make less thromboxane and are less likely to form a blood clot that could block an artery.
