Q. Is there a liquid aspirin? I would like to resume my aspirin regimen.
I stopped it due to upset stomach. I believe liquid aspirin would stay in the stomach a shorter amount of time, causing less irritation.
A. Effervescent soluble aspirin such as Aspro or Disprin is quite popular in other countries such as Australia, Canada, Great Britain and New Zealand. In the U.S., Alka-Seltzer includes aspirin along with sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) and citric acid.
We have come up with our own liquid aspirin solution. It’s very simple: Put uncoated aspirin into a glass of club soda or seltzer water. It will take a couple of minutes to dissolve with a bit of stirring. You can add one half teaspoon of baking soda to eight ounces of sparkling water to buffer the aspirin. For flavor, squeeze in the juice from a lemon wedge.
