Question

Rosemary asked:

Does Aspirin alter blood pressure?

Answer

We posed this question to Professor Peter Rothwell from the University of Oxford...

Peter -   A very small effect.  If you take high doses of Aspirin, it can increase blood pressure slightly, but its not a problem in clinical practice.
