I am on long term daily 81 mg ASA. Although there are other buffered ASA products, my doctor recommends Entrophen. because of its special delayed release coating. I've been using it for about 2 years now and it has been perfect. No adverse affects for me, so I would never take a chance and use any other product. My local drugstores sometimes don't have Entrophen 81 mg on their shelves so it is a particular delight and relief to be able to buy it at well.ca
