Cartia Low Dose Aspirin 168 Tablets


Cartia tablets are a low-dose form of aspirin. Designed to reduce blood stickiness & the tendency of blood to clot forming.

Cartia is an enteric coated (Duentric) low dose aspirin (100 mg).

A low dose aspirin may help to reduce blood stickiness, the tendency of blood to clot. Taken every day, Cartia may be useful to reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke in patients with known cardiovascular and cerebrovascular disease. Ordinary aspirin is generally released in the stomach and may cause irritation to the stomach lining.

Cartia low dose aspirin has a special Duentric coating designed to prevent it from being released in the stomach, so that it is released lower in the intestine. By releasing aspirin lower in the intestine, Cartia helps to minimise irritation to the stomach lining.


Active ingredient - Acetylsalicylic acid (aspirin) 100mg.

Other ingredients - guar gum, and a coating system including sunset yellow FCF aluminium lake (CI 15985).

Does not contain sucrose, gluten or tartrazine.

Usage Directions:

It is recommended that you take only one tablet per day.

Do not break or chew the tablet. Swallow the tablet whole with water.

Cartia can be taken with or without food.

Take Cartia at the same time each day. This will help you to remember when to take your medicine.
