Cartia® helps prevent blood clotting and reduces the risk of heart attack and stroke in
patients with known cardiovascular or cerebrovascular disease.

How Cartia® works

Low dose aspirin helps thin the blood and has been proven to help lower the risk of another heart attack or stroke.

However, aspirin is generally released in the stomach and may cause irritation to the stomach lining.

Cartia has a Duentric® coating – which is designed to minimise the risk of irritation to the stomach lining.

With this Duentric coating, Cartia remains intact until it reaches your upper intestine. This helps minimise stomach irritation.

Cartia has a special Duentric coating which prevents the aspirin from being released in the stomach.
