You need to look at the side effect of all the medication you are taking and need to have a discussion with your GP or doctor to get a medically qualified answer.

Its possible but not necessarily the cause of your issues. I take a baby aspirin 81 mg dose and it is enteric coated to reduce gastric upset on a daily basis and I don't have that issue. It is possible you may have gastritis due to other causes and aspirin may be triggering your symptoms.

Gastritis can be caused by numerous things including a poor diet, excess body weight as well as the overuse of pain killers, contracting a bacterial or viral infection. You may wish to check your symptoms with your doctor and investigate the possibility of gastritis.

Aspirin is best taken with food.

I take aspirin 150. May be this is a high dose.

If you're taking it daily that is a higher dose than I've ever heard before.

But in kolkata(India) many doctors continue with this dosage for a period one year after stenting

Here in Canada the dosage is 81 mg for the same purpose.

Will consult another cardio and try to seek his opinion. I believe this high dosage may be the cause of continuous discomfort since I embarked on these medicines.

I was stented and was given 75 mg but for the first year I also took another blood thinner, Clopidogrel (Plavix) which I took for a year. Today I only take pycnogenol after doing away with the aspirin.

When did you get the stent, I mean, which year?

I got stented on April 1st 2015. One branch of the main LAD artery. So almost three years ago. I'm a farmer, I do heavy work but for the first few months I took it kinda easy. Don't rush things, chill, go walking, try to never get stressed and don't smoke, you'll be fine.

In the meantime, ginger is a good antidote for gastritis. Make some ginger tea.
