Special Precautions
Aspirin should be used with particular caution in the following cases: Hypersensitivity to analgesics/anti-inflammatory agents/antirheumatic drugs and in the presence of other allergies.
History of gastro-intestinal ulcers including chronic or recurrent ulcer disease or history of gastro-intestinal bleedings.
With concomitant treatment with anticoagulants (see Interactions).
In patients with impaired renal function or patients with impaired cardiovascular circulation (e.g. renal vascular disease, congestive heart failure, volume depletion, major surgery, sepsis or major hemorrhagic events), since Aspirin may further increase the risk of renal impairment and acute renal failure.
In patients suffering from severe glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency, Aspirin may induce hemolysis or hemolytic anemia. Factors that may increase the risk of hemolysis are e.g. high dosage, fever or acute infections.
Impaired hepatic function.
Some NSAIDs, such as ibuprofen and naproxen, may attenuate Aspirin's inhibitory effect on platelet aggregation. Patients should be advised to talk to their doctor if they are on an Aspirin regimen and plan to take NSAIDs (see Interactions).
Aspirin may precipitate bronchospasm and induce asthma attacks or other hypersensitivity reactions. Risk factors are pre-existing asthma, hay fever, nasal polyps, or chronic respiratory disease. This also applies to patients exhibiting allergic reactions (e.g., cutaneous reactions, itching, urticaria) to other substances.

This also applies to patients exhibiting allergic reactions (e.g., cutaneous reactions, itching, urticaria) to other substances.
Due to its inhibitory effect on platelet aggregation which persists for several days after administration, Aspirin may lead to an increased bleeding tendency during and after surgical operations (including minor surgeries, e.g., dental extractions).
At low doses, Aspirin reduces the excretion of uric acid. This can possibly trigger gout attacks in predisposed patients.
Aspirin containing products should not be used in children and adolescents for viral infections with or without fever without consulting a physician. In certain viral illnesses, especially influenza A, influenza B and varicella, there is a risk of Reye's syndrome, a very rare but possibly life-threatening illness requiring immediate medical action. The risk may be increased when Aspirin is given concomitantly; however, no causal relationship has been proven. Should persistent vomiting occur with such diseases, this may be a sign of Reye's syndrome.
