According to , while aspirin should never be given to puppies because their systems can't break it down, you can give your adult dog aspirin to relieve pain and/or inflammation, and you should always give it with food. The recommended dosage is 5 mg to 10 mg of aspirin per pound of a dog's weight, as recommended by your veterinarian, and it can be given once every 12 hours. Let your vet know how many milligrams are in the type of aspirin tablet you intend to use, as found on the container label, and your vet will recommend how to cut the tablet down to reach the proper dosage.
Hi, not to hijack you question but I’ve been trying to find the right dose for me as well. I’ve been taking norcos 5 times a day for 7 years. My trouble is I’ve tried kratom from 3 different places and haven’t found one that works for me. (Although my first time it did work very well but haven’t been able to duplicate it. 3 grams, red vein Sumatra) I’ve since tried white, Borneo, red Maeng Da and I have a few more but haven’t tried yet. Im afraid two take more than 2 teaspoons of powder at a time. And I’ve noticed I have to dose more. I’m 330 lbs and 6’3” tall.
Administration advice :
-Should be given as a single daily dose.
-May be given with or without food.
-In some patients with heart failure who have normal or low blood pressure, additional lowering of systemic blood pressure may occur with this drug. This effect is anticipated and is not usually a reason to discontinue treatment. If hypotension becomes symptomatic, a reduction of dose or discontinuation of may be necessary.
-This drug is indicated as adjunctive therapy with diuretics and digitalis for treating heart failure.
-Following first time MI, all ACE inhibitors, at comparable appropriate dosages, appear to be equally effective for reducing mortality and recurrent MI rates.
-Prior to therapy, patients at high risk of symptomatic hypotension such as patients with salt depletion with or without hyponatremia, hypovolemia or those receiving vigorous diuretic therapy should have these conditions corrected. Renal function and serum potassium should be monitored.
-If it is not feasible to discontinue diuretic therapy prior to starting lisinopril, the patient should be closely monitored for several hours following the initial dose of this drug, and until the blood pressure has stabilized. The antihypertensive effects of lisinopril and diuretics used in combination are approximately additive.
-Achievement of optimal blood pressure reduction may require 2 to 4 weeks of therapy.
-Acute myocardial infarction: in addition to this drug, patients should receive, if appropriate, standard treatments, such as thrombolytics, aspirin, and a beta-blocker.
-Antihypertensive effects of this drug are maintained during long-term therapy. Abrupt withdrawal has not been associated with a rapid increase in blood pressure, or a significant increase in blood pressure compared to pretreatment levels.
Patient advice :
-This drug may be taken with or without food, but should be taken at the same time each day.
-This drug may impair your ability to drive or operate machinery.
