    how are you still alive!?

    seriously, its the amount of acemitrophin (sp?) in aspirin that has any effect on your body (more specifically, your liver) and you need to take way more then you are to damage anything.

    Doctors frequently prescribe 800MG pills. So I don't think 650 will be a problem.

    Asprin is supposed to be really bad for your stomach lining though.

    Aspirin every day will wear down your stomach lining and cause some problems. Definately get something else.

    This is no good.

    While it is true that you can get 800mg asprin that is only for used for more severe pains like tooth ache and migrains. It is not to be used regularly. Aprin taken regularly in that dosage amount will cause stomach problems and over a course of a year or more will most certainly lead to an ulcer.

    I think you need to find a different way to fall asleep.

    If you are having trouble talk to your doctor about a low-dependency rated sleep aid or try reading a book or something to help you get to sleep.

    :wtf:

    Asprin is the drug, not the name brand..

    Acetiminophen is the active ingredient in the Brand name Tylenol.. get a clue.

    800 is no meant to be used for a very long amount of time and they should tell you that alot of people cut them up because of stomach pain. they should also tell you that you should coat your stomach with milk or eat some food.

    that much asprin does a number on your stomach lining. it's fine but just dont do it for a long time.

    Asprin = brand name, where the active drug is acetylsalicylic acid (or ASA)

    holler at your stomach ulcers. I took 1200mg/day for 2 or 3 months because of RC pain, then realized what it had done to my stomach when it started hurting all the time and became sensitive. I've taken 200mg like 3 times in the past 2 years and it still bothers my stomach.

    I think a healthier approach might be to find out why you are having trouble sleeping and rectify that problem.
