good to know, I typically take the quick release tylenol for frequent only downside for the non-coated tablets is I have issues with the taste in my mouth of pills.

If I take medications to prevent conditions I am asking the doctor to prescribe them- so why would I ask the doctor if he has said good for a preparate?? The stuff I know is put under the tongue and is asborpted into the blood system really fast..

Either kind works for me, but coated cost more, so I never buy them

Coated Aspirin HAS been shown to decrease debilitating acid burn - that is why my Dr prescribes enteric coated ones to me. I can tell you from experience it is definitely not nice to suffer with that painful burn. I know others in the same boat as me.

...Background: Aspirin helps prevent heart attack and stroke, and coated aspirin has been promoted as being gentler on the stomach.

...New Study: Researchers gave 400 healthy people a single dose of 325-mg immediate-release (uncoated) or enteric-coated aspirin and measured absorption. Nearly half of the participants did not fully absorb the coated aspirin within eight hours, but all absorbed the uncoated aspirin.

...If you take coated aspirin: Ask your doctor whether you can safely switch to regular aspirin -- many patients can. Coated aspirin has never been shown to reduce bleeding in the stomach.
