Is taking aspirin a good way to lower high blood pressure?

Q: I have read a lot of research about Aspirin. Is it still advisable to use it as a means of lowering high blood pressure?

A: It is well known that daily low dose aspirin can help prevent cardiovascular events. Daily aspirin therapy also increases the risk of serious bleeding so it is not recommended for everyone. The risks versus the benefits need to be assessed on an individual basis. Whether on not any individual should take daily aspirin is a decision that needs to be made in conjunction with their healthcare provider.
