Picture Yourself Healthy

It can be hard to picture your normal life after a heart attack or ischemic stroke. Sometimes it might feel like you’re living just outside of the picture frame, unable to step back into all the activities you love.

Stepping back into your life starts with understanding your risks and all the things you can do to help prevent another heart attack or ischemic stroke. Knowing the warning signs, making lifestyle changes including eating right, following a cardiac rehab program if needed and taking medications, which may include Bayer® Aspirin as directed by your doctor, can help prevent another cardiovascular event.

Aspirin is not appropriate for everyone, so be sure to talk to your doctor before you begin an aspirin regimen.

“Being able to act like myself again — not being afraid to do the things I used to do and thinking it may cause another heart attack.”4
