Hey fellas,

I got setup with my TRT doc this week and getting the ball rolling on that front.

He told me to begin a baby aspirin regiment and so wanted to get thoughts on this. Is this something many of you do for TRT? My first thought is to wait and see what Hematocrit and Platelets look like along the way and react if needed rather than just jumping on the aspirin plan with the potential bleeding/ulcer risks over time. But I’m also thinking that platelets numbers aren’t reflective of their “stickiness” if that makes sense so I suppose Hematocrit is all we could keep an eye on either way?

Again, just looking for additional thoughts as I make this decision for myself.

Low dose probably won't give ulcers or any serious issues. But I understand not wanting to take anything that isn't needed. Having said that I take one low dose in the morning and evening.

I started talking baby aspirin when I was 44 to help with blood flow. Anabolics raise blood cell count RBC some more than others. At that age and I’ve been doing anabolics for awhile. One 81mg aspirin every day.

Yeah, I'm not sure how much the whole "triple buffered" or whatever helps. I think the biggest issue is that people were taking them all the time, back in the day. Day in and day out aspirin for pain relief. So yeah, ulcers and bleeding issues. I don't think baby aspirin is an issue...the difference between medicine and poison is dosage.

I take 2 baby aspirins every morning with my NAC, vitamin D and magnesium supps.

Do you ever wonder if the half life of aspirin is important to the equation? I'm not saying you're wrong with what you're doing, it's just something that I question myself. Hence why I do AM and PM dosing. I have zero knowledge if that helps or not.

yeah I have but if I don’t take them shortly after waking I won’t remember to take them at all. Lol

but… yeah I should split them throughout the day as with pretty much everything it’s probably more effective to do it that way.

Damn good lab results at any age..
What's the TRT dose?
Nice baselines data to look back on..perfect place to start..

I'd let the aspirin and TRT run for 3 months and repeat labs..see how your body responds,betting you will be fine..The TRT has to be dialled in to the Person,one size doesn't fit all..

Note...
At 40 you are a better than average healthy person..If you want to be the same at 50...the work is in nutrition,proper training to reduce injuries and compounds that don't cause problems..Yet things can pop UP..so listening to what the body says and regular labs is a total Must..

I use Vazalore81mg liquid technology. It’s the first approved aspirin item in forever.

VAZALORE delivers fast, reliable absorption for pain relief plus the lifesaving benefits of aspirin.

U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommended guidelines on the use of aspirin:(click link for heart care & aspirin) https://ir.plxpharma.com/node/8341/pdf

Studies show that heart attacks normally occur in the early morning hours... Dr suggested 81mg before bed so I added it to my magnesium and potassium

It amazes me we still call it baby aspirin when it has been contraindicated for babies for like 40 years, long before many guys on the forum were born and were ever given it as a child.

Oh man. I don't know why, but I just had a flashback to how freaking delicious baby aspirin were! How good were those?

I would bring talk about your concerns with your provider. If you're opposed to taking aspirin you could request to do a coagulation study once you're at your therapeutic threshold to see if it's needed.

I'm 63. I've been on TRT since 2006. My doc put me on 325mg aspirin in 2007.
I have my first appointment with a doctor tomorrow and hopefully they will put me on a program. Have you experienced any issues with TRT along the way?

Jimme, I went to a hematologist Monday. My ferritin is tanked (blood donations every 8 weeks for a year - not recommended) and I have Polycythemia (caused by AAS and sleep apnea).
With that said, if you're gonna start TRT, begin with as low a dose that helps you, ie, 100mg per week. Stick to that and redo lab work to see where your numbers are. Stay hydrated, as that will affect your H&H.

The orange ones do, there’s other flavors as well. I’m with Max though, kids shouldn’t be taking aspirin especially for fever so I think they still flavor them for us big kids lol

What brand? It's been a minute since I've had them. :LOL:
