Question

an alternative to aspirin. I was wondering if it's safe to take it all the time?

Answer

it's a relatively new drug. So there is no long term (decades) data available to say it is safe to take. But, generally speaking, most drugs by the time they come into regular clinical use, have gone through extensive trials across many countries, with many thousands of patients being involved and so one can be pretty confident that this new drug, which works like aspirin, is safe, and I'm sure will be safe in the long term.
