Aspirin/Acetyl salicylic acid is an over-the-counter analgesic.
Aspirin was synthesized in 1897 by German chemist Felix
Hoffman who knew the basic ingredient, salicin. Salicin is found in ground
willow bark, which was used by Hippocrates in fifth century B.C. to relieve
pain. Aspirin is now used as an anti-inflammatory agent to relieve arthritic
pain, and as an antipyretic compound to reduce fever. Another novel use of
aspirin is as an inhibitor of blood clot formation by preventing platelets from
releasing thromboxane. More than 40 million pounds of aspirin are sold per year
in the U.S., equaling 300 tablets per person. Because aspirin is a COX-1
inhibitor, it has the potential to cause gastrointestinal bleeding, thus it is
necessary to take only the suggested dose.
