Prolonged-release aspirin

Flamasacard, a prolonged-release formulation of aspirin, for secondary prophylaxis after a first coronary or cerebrovascular ischaemic event and following coronary angioplasty or coronary artery bypass graft.

A dose of one capsule (162.5mg acetylsalicyclic acid) should be taken at the same time each day 15 minutes before food.

Flamasacard is not suitable in situations where a rapid onset of action is required, such as the acute treatment of myocardial infarction or unstable angina. In these cases immediate-release aspirin should be administered.
