How many tablets of aspirin are needed to extend the life of carnations in a vase?
Don't use asprin because asprin can kill carnations!! Learned that one the hard way.
Usually tablets of aspirin are 325 mg, and if taken for pain/fever the dose for adults 12 and up would be 1-2 tablets every four hours as needed, not to exceed 12 tablets in 24 hours. The second most popular dose for aspirin is the "low-dose" 81 mg, and if taken for cardiac protection, the dose is once daily.
What if your patient is prescribed Aspirin Grains X po every four hours as needed for leg pain Aspirin is available 325mg per tablet You would administer?
No. Dogs, no matter what their size, cannot have Ibuprofen! But they can have aspirin. The dosage of aspirin for dogs is between 10 -35 mg per kg of body weight every 8 - 12 hours. So if your dog weighs 90 pounds, that would be approximately 40 kilograms in weight. The dosage of aspirin for a dog that size would be between 400 mg to 1400 mg of aspirin. Most aspirin comes in tablets…
For a 60lb dog, use 1 aspirin tablet (320 mg) or or 4 baby aspirins every 12 hours, if needed. If 1/2 a tablet works, it's alway better to use less, if you can get away with it. Give the aspirin dose with food. Use buffered aspirin, or regular (non-coated) aspirin only. If your dog begins to vomit or doesn't want to eat, discontinue the aspirin use.
Commercial aspirin is pretty much odorless. If you detect a "vinegar" smell, the active ingredient - acetylsalicylic acid - is breaking down. To avoid this, store aspirin where it's cool, dark and dry, in a airtight container, buy the freshest aspirin you can find (usually the best selling brand/size in the store) and don't expect it to live forever. I used to keep aspirin in the glove box, so it'd be handy, but closed cars…

NEVER EVER take salt tablets!!! If you have low sodium levels your doctor will prescribe medication or a special diet for you in conjuction with monitoring your blood sodium levels. Not always true. To prepare for brain surgery my husband needed to raise his sodium level, salt tablets were prescribed by his surgeon.
