Thank you for your questionI presume that your question is if you should be on and the answer to that question is that yes you should be on baby aspirin if you have had an ishemic stroke. If you have had a hemorrhagic stroke then baby aspirin should not be taken.This session is open for any further questions that you may have.

If you had hemiplegic migraine then that would not require a baby aspirin.All you would require is treatment for your migraine.This session is open for any further questions that you may have.

Ok I was just really wanting to take baby aspirin daily because I've heard it's benefits are good for health ?

Well, there is no harm in taking a baby aspirin if you want to take it.Even taking a pill three to four times a week should be good enough if you do not wish to take it every single day.This session is open for any further questions that you may have.
