What pill is small, round, and yellow with a capital L on it?

Not Medical Advice:

A small yellow, round pill with the imprint L on it is Aspirin 81 mg. It is used to treat back pain, angina, ischemic stroke, ankylosing spondylitis, and to prevent thromboembolism in atrial fibrillation.

Aspirin 81 mg should be taken with 8 ounces of water. Stay upright for at least 10 minutes afterwards. Take with food or milk to prevent stomach upset.

Less serious side effects are upset stomach and heartburn. Call your doctor immediately if you experience ringing in the ears, difficulty hearing, nausea or vomiting, dizziness, easy bleeding or bruising, or jaundice.

Of interest, new research shows that low-dose aspirin (81 milligrams) taken daily in middle and late pregnancy can reduce the occurrence of preeclampsia in women who are at high risk. Learn more from U.S. News & World Report.
