a medicine for health produced by the Bayer house, composed of acetylsalicylic acid . It shares the active principle with Aspirin, but differs in the dose. While Adiro comes in 100 and 300 mg, Aspirin comes in 500 mg.

Adiro: What is it for? What is it?
Adiro belongs to a group of drugs called antiplatelet drugs . Acetylsalicylic acid in these doses inhibits the action of the enzyme COX-1, responsible for the formation of thromboxane. Thromboxane is a compound that participates in blood clotting, causing a thrombus to form if an injury occurs. By stopping the formation of this compound, platelets are prevented from aggregating when the blood clots, reducing the possibility of thrombi or blood clots.
Adiro is indicated and is usually prescribed specifically in the following cases:
- Myocardial infarctions or angina pectoris .
- Transient or permanent non-hemorrhagic stroke .
- Surgical interventions similar to coronary angioplasty or in cases where a coronary bypass has been placed .
