Taking Cartia

If your doctor has prescribed Cartia, it’s important to take Cartia at the same time every day.

Cartia comes in handy calendar blister packs to help you keep track of the days.


How to take Cartia

  • The recommended dose is one Cartia 100 mg low dose aspirin tablet taken at the same time every day.
  • Take Cartia with a glass of water. Cartia should be swallowed whole, without crushing, chewing or breaking the tablet.
  • Cartia can be taken with or without food. Food does not alter the effects of low dose aspirin.


If you forget

If you forget a dose of Cartia, take it as soon as you remember.  However, if the next dose is due within 12 hours, skip the missed dose and take the next dose at the normal time.

Do not take a double dose to make up for the dose you have missed.


Cartia is available in packs of 28 (4 weeks supply), 84 ( 12 weeks supply) or 168 (26 weeks supply)
