Thanks for the citation. Folks taking daily aspirin should take it at least one hour before taking any NSAIDs.

Cyclooxygenase Inhibitors and the Antiplatelet Effects of Aspirin

FReepmail me if you want on or off my health and science ping list. IIRC, rofecoxib was Vioxx.

".....Folks taking daily aspirin should take it at least one hour before taking any NSAIDs."

My understanding was that the anti-platelet interference was ONLY for ibuprofen......and that other NSAIDS were ok in this regard......I STILL think that the paper I read at the time was in the Feb 15, 02 NEJM, despite the piece I posted above.

Anyway, the ibu and napro weren't very effective, so I will just quit it.....I had a ticker-clot in 99, so I will never quit the asa.
