Discoveries from AARP

The low-dose aspirin many people take daily to prevent a heart attack many have another big benefit-it many lower their blood pressure.


One caveat-it only works if taken at bedtime, Ramon Hermida of the University of Vigo in Spain told the annual meeting of the American Society of Hypertension in May.


Hermida tracked 109 people with mild-to-moderate hypertension and found their systolic and diastolic pressure had decreased after taking aspirin at bedtime.




In another study, reported in the May Archives of Internal Medicine, Harvard Medical School researchers found naproxen (Naprosyn, Aleve) to be the only nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug to protect against heart attacks.
